camping and secrets


So finally after quite a few months we finally had the opportunity to hook the
the trailer up and head off for a quiet weekend

it all started off beautifully with a perfect sunny friday 



this beautiful day culminated in this beautiful sunset

and of course as night fell the fire crackled away


and the wine and beer flowed

as the sun rose the next day i had plenty of time to work on some secret projects





these are just a few shots of some pressies that i have been working on for some very special people in my life, both of these projects are almost finished, so i am feeling very content with myself



As the sun started heading down on what was a wonderful stitching day, you can see the clouds had started to gather and as we headed off to bed we could hear the pat pat of rain drops on our roof

i was woken in the very early hours to the sounds of a very loud thunder storm
i guess the fact that there was really just a mere few millimeters of heavy duty canvas between me and the thundering skies made me feel more than a little nervous

when we stepped our of the trailer in the morning we found that we had about an inch of water over our outdoor matting and asa we packed up to head own the skies were kind and decided to stop dumping water on us.

so although it ended in a bit of moisture 
overall it was a wonderful relaxing weekend

Ciao
