A drive up in the mountains...

 After a glorious day weather wise on Good Friday we took a drive up to the mountains on Easter saturday. Unfortunately the weather wasn't that great up there - rain, mist - you know, typical mountains weather! But it was still a nice day out. After being stuck in a traffic jam which made a 1 hour trip take 2 hours we had a yummy lunch at the Megalong Valley Tea Rooms. Of course we had to finish off with their famous scones!

They have such lovely gardens there, the autumn colours were just starting to appear.

 Playing around with the macro on our new camera - have to say not as good as our old one but OK for a small camera.

Had a little wander around Blackheath and all the lovely shops.
Some of the streets were bursting with colour there!

Then for a quick drive to Govett's Leap lookout to see if we could see anything! It wasn't too bad when we got there but by the time we left the cloud had rolled in and you couldn't see any of this.

Sewing day

 I have been very slack not posting these photos but I have been busy planning our holiday for later in the year.............more on that later!!

A couple of weeks ago a few of us got together for  a sewing day and I showed the others how to make these little fabric baskets. I had some gorgeous printed linen I bought from Etsy that they all used.Aren't they cute!

I was going to sew the binding on my monster quilt but didn't get it done. I did get the binding all put together and ironed in half all ready to sew on.
Am hoping to get 2 sewing days over Easter.
