A few weeks ago......

Dearest Mom and Dad
It was such a relief to hear your voice yesterday, Mom. You sounded almost back to normal. What an horrendous week it has been.

Button was home for a few days.


We had a delicious meal at the Ocean Street food market. It does not look good in the photo but, $##% it was good.


At the market - not another photo, Mom!


THE baby bump !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I went on a hike with the hiking group ................


It was a very flat easy one.............


But very pretty


Very pretty


Lots to see


Interesting plants here in Oz


Some fungi


Tress and stuff


Came home to these two.


And walked to the shops.

All my love

Trees, quilt show and a garden

Dearest Mom and Dad
After the traffic drama that caused me to miss my flight, I had the opportunity to stay a while in Sydney. I went for a walk in Centennial Park - the Central Park of Sydney.


Its very beautiful - with the most gorgeous old trees.


Man made lakes, lots of people walking, running, cycling and even horse riding. Its hard to believe that you are in the middle of a huge city.


I was asked my the Maleny Quota quilt show to display some of my work.


It was a fun few days. (I know you have seen the rest of the photos on my Sewsocrazy facebook page).


It is held at the Maleny High School - a very nice venue.


Along my riding/running/walking routes I get to see some pretty scenes. Lots of trees. If I could paint, I would paint trees.


The area behind our house.

Behind our house.


On the way to Kawana.


I went to spend a bit of time with Lee the other day.............


and I got to spend some time in her magnificent garden.


I missed the roses doing their thing.............


but, gosh, it was still so beautiful.


I mean really?? I kill succulents!!!!!!


I took so many photos..............


You would love Lee's garden.


Diversity of plants and sooooooo many bees.


Lee's new kitchen, to die for.


Dinner last night, asparagus, roast mushroom and haloumi cheese with curry vinaigrette.


Two books I read the past week.
all my love

A few photos .............

Dearest Mom and Dad
Some of these photos go back a bit.................
On the news during the cyclone!


Having a party!


I went on a hike a while back with my hiking group....


Lots of water about after the cyclone.


Beautiful views.


I made a quilt for Gus from my scraps.


Then I need to get quilting - this will be a little quilt for the baby. I made it years ago............ another unfinished symphony!


Little TjuTju!


A good read - sombre and very sad !


I am now making fabric twine from my scraps - very therapeutic - who knows what I will do with it!

 
Enough nonsense from me.
Missing you!
all my love

A post, at last...................


Dearest Mom and Dad
A lovely lady in one of my classes mentioned this blog and it gave me a bit of a jolt as I have not posted in over a month..................however, I feel as though my life has been a bit boring ........................with nothing really to post about.

But, I have been a bit busy................what with going to Canberra suddenly..............
a bit of sewing and eating on the plane.


The very organised Canberra airport.


So while Gareth was on a house boat with his in-laws .................


Button and I babysat Gus!


Beautiful Gus.


There was a lot of good food..............


writing, writing, writing...................


cuddling Gus............


and a lot of wine drinking..............


I went for a few long walks.............


I bought a little pair of Ugg boots for the arrival of a baby!!!!!


They go very nicely with the Springbok babygrow Gareth bought in SA.


We went out for lunch when the happy couple got back home!


Delish food........


Soup!


Salad!


One of the off leash walks in Canberra!

So there you go, some photos!

All my love
