Gnomesville near Mandurah. Western Australia.

Hubby amazed at all the gnomes.

They went on for metres...All grouped in families, sporting groups. Some had names on them, some had RIP, some were just fun.

Lots of clubs have also joined in the fun

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.. A typical saying when we want a drink.

So many people left gnomes as a memorial.

The topless bather gnome.

A blurry map of the area.

The story of...

The origin of GNOMESVILLE

A day out in Mandurah and surrounds.

We had a day out at a local brewery. Yes we enjoyed the visit. We didn't leave empty handed.
My brother and I together in a photo. I do get the occasional few.

Out for dinner in Mandurah with my hubby. There was the 4 of us walking across the bridge. I was way in front with my brother and my hubby was at the back with a friend. I kept getting asked if we wanted a photo together. My brother said ... NO .... She is my sister so I don't need one. I just laughed  then he took one of me with my hubby.

This is where we are headed for dinner.

We were on the harbour at Mandurah at the eateries and one restaurants had this giant crab on the wall.

Teabag strings & Tags from over the world.

A big thankyou goes out to everyone who has sent tea bag strings and tags.
There have been many more that have passed on to me and I haven't got photos of them.
I sure am happy with the support and have passed them on to my friend for her to start knitting.

Charity Quilts are ready for their binding.

Hello everyone. I have finally posted something... Amazing!!!!

I have been busy getting these charity quilts quilted since back from holidays and now I am back at work learning a new position I am exhausted of a night. I have also come down with the dreaded cold.

I had a little fun on one of the charity quilts. I used my Westalee rulers.
I have been a little bit intimidated and think that my work isn't good enough..
I need to spend a little more time playing with the rulers and not rushing the quilting time.

I put a little flower in each of the the centres.

One side of the pile.

Rolled up view.

The other side view to show the diagonal quilting 

All ready to pass on to the other members to sew on the bindings which I have already cut too.

We had beautiful weather for a stroll down the beach headed for the centre of Mandurah and enjoyed a lovely lunch.

We had a wonderful day out in Fremantle. We walked and walked, ate and visited the markets.
