Quilts and a little R&R

 Pansy flowers are so lovely, and the material has been in a stash for a couple years.. sewn together in squares.. and put aside..  until a couple of weeks ago when the bug bit and I have been sewing just about everyday...:)) Stitch in the ditch is what I did for this quilt..   I am not real good at the hand quilting.. so the easier the better for me..

As for the R&R,, The Chef and I took a few days off and drove down the river to
George Town/Low Head..The sun shone in the mornings which gave us time to visit the Pilot Station at Low Head,est. in 1805( which is now open as a Maritime museum..) link here

It looks like a very wet weekend, A great time to finish off a few more crochet items. 

Remember these little gems??? well DIL of eldest Son is going to make me a granny .. I love this pattern it is so easy to make all in one piece . Gotta be happy
with that..
Ok . thats it from my part of the world.. Stay safe and well . Happy crafting :))..
