Holiday In Narrabeen



Indulge me while I share some holiday snaps of where Gbf and I stayed while I attended the Gwen Marston workshops. While I was running around in the sand dunes I realised it had been more than 2 years since I'd last seen the ocean. It's chilly winter time here in Oz but we sure had a great time watching the waves roll in, feeling the sand beneath our feet, and breathing in the salt air. 

If you make it to the end of the photos you'll see where I'm up to with my liberated medallion...


















 Here it is -
 my Liberated Medallion so far ... stay tuned for the next exciting border, I'm not quite sure but it could involve some applique and circles...

  20. I love the colour combination in the shot of the line of 'monkey tails' - (that is what we call the norfolk pine leaves here in NZ, if you wondered what I meant).

  21. Neverbeen to Narabeen but it looks great. Winter is Australia is most excellent I reckon. Snow is pretty an all but freezing is too cold and I like our blue skies and unfrozen water!
