Every year I hang out for February to arrive. It is the last month of summer. I have always believed it is easier to keep warm, than cool down without air conditioners everywhere. The Australian Tennis Open finishes, the TV viewing may get better after the Christmas/New Year break, I may get a chance to not have to watch the cricket which seemed to dominate 2 free to air channels this summer. Our TV reception after the lightning bolt is still not what it used to be, making viewing a bit of a challenge. It is also birthday month in our house for both of us. We try to do something to recognise those special days. Even if it is just a day trip away together to somewhere we have not visited before.
This is the beginning of a beach inspired one. I have 2 more strips of aqua colour, then a series of gold strips cut ready to stitch. I have used a different grey batik as the background for this one. I managed to source some more of my original grey fabric from Gympie in our travels last week. Not sure which grey I like best.
We have managed to score some rain with some decent falls without deluges causing problems. Happy to see that many parts of Queensland have also had some rain and a mood of optimism may prevail.
