Beach house interior with quilt

I was lucky enough to spend last weekend with 4 other keen sewers, in a beach house we hired in Sorrento, on the Mornington Peninsula.  After 6 weeks of company, 24/7, while the kids were on school holidays, it was lovely to be somewhere where the only person I had to really look after was me.

The Saturday was very wet and grey, so we stayed in the little house amongst the Coastal Tea trees and sewed, while watching girly movies.  I managed to get halfway round my “Wheel Of Fortune” Quilt with peachy squares.

Sunday was a glorious day, so we went down to the Sorrento Back-Beach to have a wander, (The Back-beach faces the Ocean.  The Front-beach, on the other side of Sorrento, faces the same large bay that Melbourne is built on, and is much more sheltered).

Above is the view looking East, and below is the view looking West.

Having spent a fair bit of my youth visiting this beach, I was pretty pleased to get a chance to get my feet wet and sandy here again, even if it wasn’t quite warm enough to swim.

Everyone enjoyed pottering around the large rock pool, and dipping their toes in.

It was a wonderful weekend to recharge the batteries in preparation for the year ahead.

Where was your last sewing weekend?
