A touch of nostalgia

They say you can never go back and I must admit it has been a very long time since I spent any time at the Sunshine Coast where I lived for a few years as a child. Recently I was there for a few days  attending a niece's wedding at Maroochydore... what can I say; the wedding was wonderful, the weather was fabulous and I got to spend a bit of time marvelling at how much the place had changed.

Until I set foot on Maroochydore beach and looked north. This view looks just as I remember from childhood (I wasn't close enough to see bathing suits. I'm pretty sure they've changed a lot since I was a kid!).

The view to the south is a bit different, with lots of high rise apartments at Mooloolaba and Alexandra Headlands. Even so, it is still a very beautiful part of the world. Makes me wonder why I haven't taken the time to visit sooner.

On the crafting front, I have finished the top of my Dancing Nine Patch. It is off being quilted and then there will be the rush job of binding before it is raffled off on November 23. 

Nothing like a deadline!
