january reporting !

after being away for christmas i have returned to my place and all of a sudden the end of january is in sight !
we had a very enjoyable time in hobart, tasmania !
the sydney to hobart yacht race was a part of the hobart scene!

lots of sailors in town

the local birds were all happy

and we went and enjoyed high tea at the revolving restaurant at wrest point, i had been before at night, but never during the day and the views of the familiar surroundings were good to see

we did eat some of the goodies, but were busy looking at the views

mt wellington stands over hobart with varying moods

looking down on sandy bay

the yatch club and city view

a happy time was had by us all !

my comfy bed, over the top is a cross stitch i did 24 years ago when the twins were born, there is another one in another bedroom

i certainly had plenty of sleep and a good rest, lovely fresh air and one of my favourite spots to lay my head

someone had a birthday and we enjoyed more of the local grown delicious raspberries on the homemade sponge, happy birthday paula and thanks for making the cake deb

some sewing was done

and now at home i have finished this quilt that i started in hobart in 2009

i hand pieced the squares, then it sat in the cupboard waiting to be quilted, so off to be machine quilted and now the binding is done and i have slept under this quilt

off to the beach again for a week at phillip island, you can see some other adventures in hobart over at my other blog here.
