Saturday we had some errands to do so only had a little bit of time to play with my machine. But I tried out the blanket stitch and it is great!
So on Sunday I managed to do some healing hearts for some people on our Yahoo group.
Today Craig & I went to Glenbrook, a little village at the start of the Blue Mountains. It is only about a 40min drive. We had a stroll around and looked in some of the shops that were open. Found a great shop called Candleberries that had candles (of course LOL) and great Prim/Americana crafty gifts. I was sooo in my element!! I have never seen stuff like this for sale here in Sydney anywhere or anywhere else I have been. The lady in the shop was telling us they go to the US and source all their stock direct from there. I was good and only bought some little candles and a old fashioned tin candle holder. This is a pic from a website.
I made a point of letting Craig know that they do gift vouchers!!! LOL
We then had lunch in a great cafe - penne with pesto, spinach & bacon - yummo!!
And then went for a bit of a walk to walk off our lunch.
A splash of red among the greens & browns -
And I suppose these are some type of wild mushrooms but they were a pumpkin orange colour!
Home now for some homemade soup I put in the crockpot this morning!
