It's a long post from me for a change.
Here are my BaD blocks for the week, with some Easter Bunnies. I loved working with my favourite colours of teal and aqua, unfortunately the photograph does not do them justice.
My sewing room/office has become my retreat and oasis whilst we are in the midst of some family dramas .
I started the year determined to try some new techniques, so I gave myself a treat by enrolling in an online class on the Joggles website. My class is a "Textured and Treated Reticule" by Christen Brown. I spent some happy hours yesterday, playing with fabric, yarns and a new product to me called "Texture Magic" which is a steam activated shrinking fabric.
Here are a few shots of my work so far

On Good Friday my daughter and I took a walk on the beach and poked around in the logs, trees and branches that have ended up on the shore after all our floods. Some creative people have been making "sculptures" on the beach out of the wood
I'll close my post this week with a shot of my daughter on the beach. She is on a Gap Year this year, working and traveling. She is off to Japan on Thursday for a 3 week holiday with a friend. Japan is her passion and she will be studying Japanese at University next year It's her first overseas trip without a parent and she is so excited. I am so happy for her, but a bit anxious as well...my apron strings are getting very frayed , it's almost time to cut them off.
