Blogging drought

Gee, how long has it been since I posted! I have a few things to tell you about, but unfortunatley nothing craft related! More just trips & days out I have had. AS well as being in a blogging drought I am also in a sewing drought! Haven't picked up a needle since before I was sick! Am going to my sewing group on Friday so hopefully will get something done there.


Well back in May ( when I was feeling so ill I should have just stayed at home!) Craig & I had a weekend in Canberra. We stayed in a lovely hotel, visited the National Museum of Australia and the War Memorial and also spent a day with my brother and his family.

Some beautiful sewing in the museum:


A retro pig!! I think it was made in 1946:


Some Aussie icons:



Our hotel:



At the War Memorial:
One of the many amazing dioramas:




The toilet of a submarine - I am just over 5ft and I couldn't sit up straight, would hate to think how awful it would be for a tall man!

Lovely photos of your trip. I would love to go back to Canberra. Lots of historical things to see & do.
So glad to hear someone else has had a blogging/sewing drought. It must have something to do with this cold that you have so generously given to me over the net. LOL! I feel like doing nothing.

You cant go to Canberra without a trip to the war memorial.. a must. I could spend hours there and always do. Despite all the soldiers have gone through I still find it a serene place.
Take care
