ABOVE:  I got another parcel in the post!  Whooop.. this awesome Fish Quilt Pattern with templates and:

ABOVE: this fabric!  All from a blogger friend in Aussy (Sparklingmerlot)... isn't she sweet?

ABOVE:  I finished one of the 'smaller version' quilts last night.   Just have to do the other one now... then put on the new valances and find the headboards for the beds.  I'm sure they are in the storage room under the house. SOMEWHERE!

Today Chris D and I will no doubt go out and about again.... but we need to be home by lunchtime as my Son-In-Law is stopping in to pick up a few pieces of furniture we have given them.  Yaaa... less clutter in my house.


It is such a glorious day Chris D and I went for a walk in the Botanic Gardens with the dogs.  It really was lovely, and the dogs loved it too... Coco in particular!  She was like a rabbit, bouncing all over the place!  She loved the water too:

ABOVE:  she's having a 'Bad Hair Day' for sure!   I am getting both dogs groomed next week... short for summer.  hee hee he.

Andrew and Sky arrived at lunchtime, so I fed them. As ya do.  Then they loaded up the trailer with the bits of furniture and left.  Chris and I had a quiet, relaxing afternoon sitting in the lounge doing diddly squat!  It's weird doing 'nothing'!
I am taking her out to the airport in a couple of hours so she can fly home again. 

Maybe I won't cook tonight!  lol.... I will be in rush hour traffic afterall!  *hint* *hint* to the hubby!

End of Day:  and I have finished off the day by doing.... NOTHING!  Just chilled out in the lounge with Stew.  Weird.  But true.  nite nite.
