QWE Time

Last weekend JulieAnn & myself had our little getaway without leaving at our local caravan park on the river

We chilled out, laughed, ate, drank, sewed & watched DVD's ~ Elvis, Rod Stewart, Mama Mia, Take the Lead & Love Actually. It was what we both needed, desperately.

The time went way too quickly and its been decided Next Time will include an extra night stay.

As promised here a few pics of our time

This is Us in Happy Mode

I did a bit of this... its the start of a Corner to Corner crochet knee rug. I started it last year and as you can see I haven't progressed very far!

And this too...

The lovely JulieAnn with a very special project for a precious family member.

And a sneaky project JulieAnn has started recently (she amazes me by the way)

This is my Eyton, which continues to slowly grow and the vision in my head becomes reality

Miss JulieAnn worked on Ann Daggs quilt - so good to see her back on this one. Its been tucked away for a long time due to frustrating flowers. A new plan was devised for their replacement making completion a step closer. I meant to take a full photo of the quilt, (sorry I didn't), there is so much work in it and is utterly beautiful.

And by the River... 

We did a bit of this...

And this.... 

We had some Fluffy Visitors

That would be my Wayne who dropped in to say hi & stayed for delicious dinner prepared by JulieAnn

 And to finish this post - Mimi's William Morris Roses 
(Mimi because my precious Granddaughter has renamed me)

And Angus, who has been very smoochee & full of cuddles this week 

til next time (when I'll be a Mrs)

Road Trips
We (Son & Myself) went on an overnight trip to the East Coast to visit my girls; our visit much too short but extremely special as always.  It’s such a pretty part of this country; we were shocked to hear on arriving home of the devastating fires which had occurred in Tathra and how lucky we were to have left at the right time. The photos below were taken that morning, the wind that blew up not long after was horrendous making the drive difficult & tiring.

A ride out to Dan Morgan’s Lookout near local town Culcairn. It was so interesting & I couldn’t believe in my 52 years I’d never been there. The day was so hot with dried & brown landscape showing our desperate need for good rain. A return trip is planned for when its cooler in a vehicle with a picnic.

Back Home Again

We are blessed with some beautiful sunsets during the summer months


Soon to be Mr & Mrs!!
I’ve made some candles for our guests which has been a lot of fun and a very big change from stitching
Speaking of which, hexies on the go for Eyton Hall with the hexie count currently at 1,826.      

Reflections of Angus

A lunchtime walk to our Murrumbidgee River - its dropped considerably due to little rain in the catchments and Irrigators (rice farmers) taking lots of water.


We girls are off sewing this weekend – I promise to update you with photos this time, and soon.

Til then
