... for a week or maybe more, escaping the last mad winds of Winter
What a difference 5 days makes, the Wisteria buds are fat and getting some colour
Maybe we'll come home to pretty hanging blooms :)
Funny little man is in charge at the polling booth today so I have all day to play and prepare for our road trip tomorrow
Bake - Lemon drops, Jam drops and the yummiest cake ever... Date, Almond and Muesli cake topped with lemon cheese frosting... too delicious for words
Laundry - Wash the winter woolies and put crisp cotton sheets on the bed, fingers crossed it will be warm when we return
Shop - lollies for the trip :), beer for the FLM and some 'girlie' beverages for me. There might be a bit of food involved too...
Prepare - Ratty for the Resort. Apparently this one has piped music to all units if you please... He'll be right at home although the lady did comment that he 'sounds a bit spoilt' when I mentioned he likes to sleep on a soft cushion with a Laura Ashley cover... I'm sure he'll be ok... I'll bring his cushion...
New do - I'm a bit over this mop of hair, time for the sheep to be shorn. It's all coming off but I have a head like a pumpkin so it might be an interesting result. Might have to buy a new hat...
**The Willowberry Designs Etsy Shop will be on holiday too**
and will be closed from today, re-opening on Monday 30th August
Can't have a story without a quilt...
How much do we love this one?
and the back... pretty spesh
Rouenneries yummy-ness... Like I said to Chriss, 'seriously gorgeous'. Great choice of quilting design Chriss!
We visited Chriss to deliver this one yesterday and were met by a herd of cattle... just the best atmosphere. Lots of paddock, lots of trees, rural views forever... I want to live like that. And it was raining! Perfect.
So, I'll be back in a week or so... give or take a few days... and I'll be full of tropical nonsense to share because we're visiting my big sister and her hubby, Wayne (of Wayne's quilt fame). We might even stay long enough to catch up with my next big sister and her hubby... our 'big trip' travel companions and trip planners extroardinaire
(68 sleeps - I'm whispering... just in case you're sick of hearing about it... I'm pretty sure Joy only has about 32 sleeps or something crazy like that)
Block 9 ~ the final block ~ of 'Under the Sea' will be trying to make an appearance for September 1st but if we are having too much fun it might be a day or two late...
