The last 3 days.


There was a bazaar on Saturday, rather unusual as they always seem to be on Sundays.
I was rather please with my purchases.
4 nice coffee mugs. ( for back up. )
6 shirts all the same material. These were brand new, still had the cardboard tucked in the collars.
Some pretty floral dresses.
I met Sandy there too from our little sewing group and we had a rummage together.
I came home and washed them all ready for using.


Well lo and behold, another bazaar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This time I got a small oblong tray to stand my toaster on, to stop the crumbs going all over the place. Spot on it is too.
Some fabric off cuts and other bits and pieces.
These too have all been washed and stored ready for use. Thing is my hexagon quilt is still not finished and I am plodding along with that. I have decided to put another round of blue hexagons around the edge to make a wider border and it all takes time, but the end is in sight. Think I’ll put out the flags when it is finished.

Sunday afternoon

In the afternoon we decided to take Lucky for a walk  along by the sea in between Malia and Sissi. It was a lovely day. The birds were singing, the insects were doing what insects do and this is what we saw.

Sweet miniature iris’s
Gorse ready for dying your eggs for Easter. Rather prickly like.

A beach side property. Made of wood and palm branches. Think someone was living there as there was a motor bike parked at the top of the path.
Lucky was really tired out and sat down and refused to move. Poor little thing she only has short legs, so she got a carry for a little while. Needless to say she hardly ventured off the settee all night.


Monday’s are Camera Club days.
A small group of us get together to learn a bit more about our cameras and taking photo’s.
This was the subject this week.
Photographing boats in the lake at Agios Nikalouas.
Hope you all had a good few days over the weekend.
