Hi everyone and a HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL.
I have been away for the weekend on our maiden voyage with our new Basil bus.
We had a quiet New Year's Eve. I didn't even see it in...
Then we packed Basil and off we drove. Friday saw us visit my brother, SIL and nephew in Tocumwal. Really enjoyed catching up with some stories, bbq and of course some drinks. We stayed the night in the dreadful heat but we managed. It's so hot......
On the road again and we had lunch in a cool pub in Wodonga... A few coldies were our medicine.
The drive took us to Tallangatta and we booked in to the local caravan park. Under a shady tree and overlooking the lake we set up camp. Boy was it hot... I think about 42 deg..
It was nice to just sit but I don't really handle the heat too well. Luckily we had a fan that was on us all night. We watched a movie then off to sleep.
The next day we had a beautiful brunch at Taste cafe in Rutherglen. What a lovely little town. Then kept driving to visit our daughter and grandsons in Mansfield. We stayed the night at the caravan park. Sitting under the verandah, legs in the kiddies pool and enjoying a drink. How relaxing does that sound... Good but the heat was still with us.
During the night was woken by a great crash and bright light. Thunder and lightning storms. It was loud. Took the real heat off the area but not all of it. Slept til about 9am then back to the grandsons and breakfast. Packed up and set off home.
How nice.... I have done all the washing, unpacked and repacked Basil. Had a nana nap, cooked tea and am now enjoying the refreshing 22 degrees.
Catching up on all the blogs. I did manage to read a few while I was away but no comments. I have also sat down and done a little slow stitching on this Sunday so will link up with Kathy too.
A great way to finish this long weekend and to start off the new year.....
My Hexies have gone from this.....
To the next step and plan a few more
And my Hexie is finished
This is a project we were handed out at the XMAS break up party with the Heathcote quilters.
We are to make 1 of these Hexies. If you hand 1 in you get a ticket in the draw. The winner gets all the blocks made. Then you need to decide what to do with them.
I have enough fabric and designs to make 4 so I will be slowly working on them. I'm not sure when they have to be done by.
Hope to catch up with all of you in Blogland over the next day or two....
