gosh it's been a hectic fortnight

Wow how the time flies by, i can't believe how long it's been since 
i have had time to sit down
and write on my blog, for that fact to read your's

so i have a quick catch up for you, grab a cuppa this may take a while

before we sailed out Gadget and i had a few days in Sydney
being the snap happy photographer i am, I had a ball in Sydney




. . . Sydney has got the festive spirit  . . . 

this pub was just up the road from where we were staying, it was incredibly busy
 EVERY day of the week


(oh yeh it was called the Three Monkeys)


we found this amazing hotel, it is Sydney's oldest licensed pub
and the longest running brewery in Sydney

now don't think we spent all our time drinking we also did all the touristy things

we headed out onto the harbour
it was an amazing day for photo's and Gadget laughed at me as i frantically snapped away



on my previous post i mentioned we sailed out on the friday morning for a three day cruise
with our Coite friends 

well the cruise was amazing, 


i would love to say it was relaxing, but we stayed up laughing and chatting 
and drinking some yummy cocktails 
most nights and we were up early with things to do most days
 so i was pretty tired in the end


 we sailed back into Sydney in the wee early hours, so we got to
see the sun break over Sydney .....

it was amazing these are just a few of the hundreds of shots i took











unfortunately once we were back home we discovered that a great sadness was about to fall upon us
as we had to say farewell to gadget's gorgeous Nonna






so as you can see it has been a bit of a whirlwind fortnight


have i been sewing ...... yes but shhhh it's a secret


i posted my first ever SSCS last friday
and i have a feeling that the mailbox is going to be my favourite hang out in the weeks to come




and today i posted these gorgeous fabrics to Victoria 
 for a fun rainbow charm swap


well i guess that pretty much catches you all up


back soon with some sewing to show you


hope your hands are working on something that you love


Ciao
