Happy New Year to all, wishing you a wonderful crafty 2014.
After three weeks spent driving from one side of the country to the other, and then back again, I am trying to get my thoughts back into work mode this week without much success.
I’ve driven across the Nullarbor many times but I always forget how far it is between towns, and localities, and just how far it is in kilometres from one side of the country to the other.
(We drove 7,800+ kilometres from door to door, & back, leaving home on 19 December & arriving back on 12 January)
So I thought that the post today should be about the amazing country through which we traveled.
It was worth all the driving as we had a great visit with family for Christmas, and then met up with more family at a nephew’s wedding.
In the process we were able to test the livability of a great little camper trailer along the way.
I’ve hardly picked up a needle and thread since mid December (I tell a lie … I had to repair a lost button while we were travelling … but that doesn’t really count as stitching does it?) but I think that I have collected some great photos for landscape appliques and thread painting!
But not everything was dry and brown
the birds are beautiful
and the kangaroos treated one of the caravan parks where we stayed as home.
The ocean views were stunning
as were the sunsets
It makes me realise that I really should take more time away from the city to enjoy a quiet time without the telephone, computer or TV.
Well our next post will be back to work with some great ideas for using fabric & threads so do subscribe or call back to this page regularly.
