Lockdown Six

As Melbourne is now two weeks into lockdown number six I am trying to stay busy.  But I think, like a lot of people, I am feeling a little gloomy.  Having the curfew brought back, and playgrounds shut makes it very real.

I took this photo on the way to the post office to send two parcels of completed quilts home.  I will get stopped at the railway crossing at least once each trip, and frequently both ways.  I find funny the picture of our premier Dan Andrews drawn on the wall of the liquor shop with his iconic phrase of last year's press conferences.

In the ten days of limited freedom between lockdown five and lockdown six I did manage to get a walk with my brother along the bay.

As for this lockdown I am trying to keep busy.  My injured foot continues to play up.  Scans have revealed that I have torn the muscle in the ball of my foot.  I am diligently doing the exercises the podiatrist has given me, but it seems to be two steps forward and one step back.  So I have been working on completing my Aberfeldie Flowers quilt.


  1. Beautiful quilt! I'm sorry about the shut downs. We don't care for it here in OKlahoma USA either! Keep you chin up and sewing/quilting machines running!

  2. You’re right, lockdown #6 is more tiresome and gloomy. Guess we’ll just have to keep stitching. 😊

  3. Sorry to hear your foot isn't healing (know the feeling too well!)
    Looking forward to #6 AND Winter being over so we can get out and hit the trails again.
    Cheers Wendy.
