Mon Ami fin! And a float on the harbour...

Mon Ami...this months quiltlet in the Le Petite group is finished. I used one charm pack of Punctuation by American Jane with some bits from her previous ranges thrown in to add variety. It certainly was interesting...SO many HST's...they seemed endless at one stage...but I am happy with it's cheery scrappy look but have noticed that the border has a slight ripple....hope it will quilt out! Now I am looking forward to next month's selection....and fabric selection!
Last weekend saw DH & myself heading off to Sydney for a cruise on the harbour with his work colleagues. Fortunately it was a little cooler than today, but still a lovely sunny day.We bobbed around on the water for about six hours and looked at all the lovely waterside properties. There are certainly some lovely homes.
Here I am looking a trifle windswept with the "coathanger" in the background (and a boat on my head!)...
Luna Park ( I have never been there...not a fan of scary rides)...
the Anzac Bridge ( great flags especially as today is Australia Day)...
the skyline at night.
