a few stitches

Amidst a major decluttering exercise in the household recently (to move on most of what we've been storing for the 'not so young' children) I have sewn a few stitches. I finished off the woollen penny rug sample ready to incorporate it into something else one day, and completed a small piece for a class exercise.
The penny rug piece is about 10" square, so not sure where it might end up. It is all straight stitches - easy and relaxing to do
 - not quite so all the colonial knots in the corners of this one though.  

Not much happening in the garden - except for appearances by more blue tongue lizards. Haven't seen the biggest one again, but the smaller one (or maybe it's another!), and two small ones side by side - twins? It is only a small garden so we're beginning to feel outnumbered. I haven't found where they are living yet.
The leaves are falling now, and these caught my eye after some rain.

Something quite different another day - the early morning sun shone through and lit up the resin on the prunus tree

And finally a couple of views of nearby

  Port Noarlunga and the reef on a lovely sunny day.
