What a weekend this has been.
Excitement plus.

1st off - did you notice my new look blog?
I was lucky enough to win a Blog makeover from Katrina Chambers
Katrina is one clever chick.
Thanks Katrina I love my new look.
Katrina also has another blog called A Very Fine House check it out.

The second exciting thing this weekend was the engagement of child #4 Michael and his gorgeous girlfriend Chantelle.

The happy couple

Chantelle thought Michael did a great job picking the ring
She loved it

Love this laughing photo of Chantelle

It's in the bag

Ready for a stitch here and a stitch there
The bag is always near by to be picked up and taken with me in the car or to any room in the house.
I keep a small piece of embroidery to work on in this pretty pink bag
Whenever I have time I sew a few stitches

It makes it much easier to do something creative when you can just bundle it up into the bag when someone calls in or you have a chore to do

Love the white embroidery on this piece of linen

Just place a hoop around the linen and it is playtime - anywhere, anytime
Just put it back into the bag when playtime is over

Kiteboarding at Rosebud Beach

Went for a walk at Rosebud Beach over the weekend and came accross these Kiteboarders

Took a movie with my camera For some reason you lose the right hand side of the video so you might want to click on this link and view it through YouTube

Click and enlarge the photos below

These guys were having a ball

Enlarge this and see how high he is out of the water

It was so cold and windy on the beach

Can't beat a walk on an Aussie beach during Winter - beautiful skies and fabulous water

White Wednesday

As a Lover of All Things White - I have joined in White Wednesday over at Faded Charm

Gorgeous White Heart
What girl doesn't love 'hearts' this is one of my favourites

Love all the detail on this little white cupboard.

Inside are some pretty pink glasses

Beautiful white Camellia from my garden

Love this shell covered orb

I was trying to take a photo of this embroidery without getting any reflection in it.
When I down loaded them I loved this one even with the reflection because that reflection is my bedroom

Remember to go over to Faded Charm and see some more lovely whites
