The count down is on.......................

Dearest Mom and Dad
So, in just under a month the baby will be born - its too darn exciting!

I found this very ugly little sewing basket at an op-shop the other day - and could not resist taking it home.

I finished this quilt for the little exhibition in Noosa.

Button had a great time in Melbourne - the screening of the web series she was in.


Ella and Lyla ( the little girls from next door) came over to "make stuff". We made a sock dog. Their Mom sent over a glass of champagne and chocolate brownies!

Margret made this quilt .................. stunning isn't it?

She said that I inspired her. So Lovely!

Its really a very striking quilt.

I did another trunkshow - this time in Peachester - a cute country town.

Vaughn took this photo of Bon and Tju watching me swim in the sea over the weekend.

Chloe sent me this photo the other night and asked the question - "what's wrong, should I double the string"...........

I said yes, and there she was knitting away.

Can you believe that Gareth with be a DAD soon?

All my love

A visit to Canberra

Dearest Mom and Dad
So, you are both better - YAY!! And the fires seem to be under control YAY!
Life is good.
I headed off to Canberra, armed the quilt I finished for the baby.

Had some sewing to keep me busy at the airport and on the plane.

This is Gareth at the licensing department getting everything sorted for their new car. Can you believe how organised the whole setup is AND there were empty spots at the counter! Ah, Australia!


Pampered pooch!

Mom, hold on to your hat! This is the market Gareth and Chloe go to once a week.

I mean, really?

All local farmers....................

Bread makers..................

Are you jealous yet?

Quite something - the quality of the food

Anyone for apples or pears?


The happy couple and their new car.
More photos to follow.
All my love

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
