All my christmas shopping is done, only have to do the groceries, am planning on going Christmas Eve, early in the morning, the supermarket opens at 7am. Craig laughed at me when I told him what my plans are, I told him not to laugh he was coming with me LOL
Over the christmas break I plan on doing some sewing for myself. I am going to attempt Bonnies Mystery quilt! But I also plan on doing some boring things like cleaing the timber venetians and the windows, 2 things I don't get time to do through the year.
Enjoy your lead up to Christmas!!!

Last Saturday my darling husband drove me over 2 hours to a little country town called Braidwood for the annual Airing of the Quilts. It was spectacular to see all the gorgeous quilts hanging from the buildings.
Here is a link to my web album of all the pics but below are a few of my favourites.
This next one was hanging on the front of a fire engine at the fire station. Each block was made by a member of the fire department. It was fantastic!
The Antique & collectibles shop in the old Cheese factory. Was some great things in here.

I would really love to go but can't get anyone to come with me. So I was thinking that maybe if any one out there in blogland was going then at least I could say I knew someone, well sort of LOL LOL
So leave me a comment & introduce yourself if you are going and you may get a little surprise in the mail from me!!
On the crafty side of things, I have actually been doing some sewing!!! Finally !!!
Unfortunatley I can't show you the pics yet as some are for presents (and Secret Santa Swaps!) but will post them soon.

Well I kept forgetting to take pics but here are some of where I work. Not very exciting I know but hey I spend a lot of time there LOL
I work in a medical practice and this is the front counter - my desk. The colour is not very good in the photo, the wall in the background is a plum/purply colour.
The waiting room

and headed off with our picnic lunch to Thirroul beach, near Wollongong, about 45 minutes from home.
Had our healthy lunch and this was the viewWe then walked around to the beach
From here we headed north up Lawrence Hargreaves Drive to the Sea Cliff Drive which is a bridge that is built out over the water. The original road used to hug the cliffs and wind and wind but there was a lot of trouble with rockfalls and land slides so the road was closed for a couple of years and they built this road out over the rock platforms and the water. Quite an engineering feat!
On the way home we saw a broken down car and the man was in a wheelchair so we turned around to see if he needed any help. He had already called for help and it was on its way. When we were turning around we saw a sign to a Conservation Area so being the intrepid explorers that we are we turned in to have a look. There was a couple of short walks from the car park and one said Kellys Falls so we couldn' resist that one!
Was a short walk down to the rock platform of the waterfall, small but had water flowing, and a track that meandered along the gorge to get more views and to another flowing stream.
Hmm not a very good pic but these were all taken on my phone camera. If you can see the top of the waterfall, we walked across the top of it to get to this point.Friendly lizard -
Sorry, this last pic is blurry but you get the idea, a lovely flowing stream that eventually goes over rock edge LOL Was lovely and cool fresh water.
Well that was our adventure for today, back to reality tomorrow!!
around to the left there are some steps which go up to the top of the rock.
This is the view from the top
Just gorgeous, and a place we never knew existed on ly 30 mins from home!!
