Tuncurry Here We Come

Every year at this time we go north for a month to Tuncurry (New South Wales Australia) a little beach side town. Beautiful beaches for swimming and fishing, great lakes and river for fishing and boating, nice drives for just relaxing, and a good shopping centre for when it is raining, there is also a movie theatre for when one needs to chill out and the most important shop of all is a Patchwork shop and a Craft Shop both in walking distance of the Tuncurry Beach Caravan Park
Although it has been raining since Sunday we have packed the caravan, with everything that we need. This year we decided to cut down on what to take.
James has his clothes toiletries etc and of course his fishing 'stuff' I do hope that he can catch a lot of fish. As I don't really want to get out of bed at the crack of dawn and walk miles and miles up the beach to fish, he can catch the feeds of fish for us as he has done in the past.
Now me, I have packed my clothes etc, and they are important and another thing that is important is my craft 'stuff', knitting - the red cardigan I started 2 years ago in Benidgo, when I thought that it would be a good idea to knit myself a cardigan. My Hexagons

are packed and ready to go. Also Sandi is coming too, as I am going to knit a cardigan for her and her cousin Tillie, now I think that there is enough for me to do for a month especially when I will be doing a lot of swimming in the rock pool and socialising with all our friends that are coming with us and of course I hope to make some new friends too.

James doing what he loves =- Fishing and catching some too.

Dolls Dress

For the last couple of weeks it has been so hot I haven't felt like doing anything.

In fact the only thing that I have been doing is watering the garden first thing of a morning and seeing that the plants of ok and then putting on the Air-Con and sitting inside doing my Hexagons which are coming along nicely. Not really fast enough but one has to be patient. Now I have to have a little rest from sewing the Hexagons as my hands are getting sore. So I have decided to crochet a dolls dress

My friend made one of these dresses, it was the same pattern but the pattern was written differently and hard to decipher. The person who wrote the pattern Now has made it easier to read and to decipher, so I decided to crochet the dress just to see what it would look like.

Books I have Read.

I thought that it would be a good idea if I had a list of books that I have read. Over the years I have read lots of book as one does, but never kept a record of them.
It will be very interesting just to see what type of books I like to read.
