Tassies Beautiful East Coast...

If ever you get the chance to visit Tasmania there are SO many places to visit, but the east coast is highly recommended by me. We have done the whole East Coast before, but for a few days before Christmas we decided to take a couple of day break & stayed at Swansea as Mr Spunky really wanted to get the chance to go back to Freycinet National Park (everything in Coles Bay was already booked). We did the Wineglass Bay walk with the kids. It is rather steep with steps

It was pretty muich like this pic the whole way up & back too, but hey if Em (4) could do it - she walked the whole way much to our surprise - anyone can. And I tell you it was worth the walk. We were blessed with an absolutely stunning day!

Some sewing..

Oh I am feeling a bit lazy so not much describing..these are just some reversible smock tops that I have made out of recycled linen (mostly curtains & sheets). these are part of my effort to make as much with my stash before I have to leave alot of it behind....only 5 weeks till the big move!

I also decided to play with some applique - the robot stitching is atrocious, so don't look too close, but I was happy with the bird....

Terribly slack.....

I can't believe it has been almost a month since my last post!! I do have good excuses - the internet was down for at least a week and a half - honestly what did we do before the internet??
I was away for another week & my gorgeous mum was here for the other week. On top of that I have been doing the painstasking & very time consuming Fabric stash cull - this really has not been easy. But we are moving in 5 1/2 weeks & Mr Spunky is being tuff. I think I would have easily filled 20 packing boxes with all my stash - new, vintage, recycled, including chenille bedspreads etc but he has limited me to 3, yes 3!! I think I may have sneaked an extra box, but really need so many more. Mum was a wonderful help & in one day we carted about 10 garbage bags full off to the local charity shop.....

I haven't had a chance to do much sewing in this time, but I did sew these guys up while the internet was down.

I have also made a blue one, but think I will try & make some shorts for him. They have been made from vintage chenille & vintage sheet fabric.
