these are just some visions from the last few weeks, a trip to sydney, a drive to kyneton, some christmas parties and gatherings with friends, sewing times and sharing.
a visit to the crewel gobelin in sydney took me back to my working days at bustle and bows in east malvern and also my own shop broderie.
many new projects to stitch, along with many that i already have
at john and jean's home things were starting to look like christmas
a robin is always christmas to me, a family tradition !
a comfy and inviting spot on the couch with pretty cushions
we hired ourselves a bus and it turned out to be a brand new one and eight of us headed for the mountains with this trusty and all round good bus driver
we visited some very creative gardens
it was a very hot day, 45 degrees in sydney, supposed to be cooler in the mountains, supposed to be, but we all survived
a great spot to spend 'time' in the garden
even 'patchwork' with rocks in the garden
this was bus for the day, a very comfortable ride it was
in the next garden, the zebras had all left home for the day, cleaning stoves obviously
and we visited the sisters !
some of the clever sydney girls showed us their sewing, very patriotic
a lovely visit and a cool drink on another day was to a lovely nursery, this new hydrangea 'you and me' was just so beautiful
back to work from the sydney girls
this gorgeous piece of fabric the inspiration for a quilt
lots of stars
a little christmas at a friend's home
the man in the garden at kyneton
some embroidery from the group, nearly finished
some christmas at my place, simple but twinkling !
and we have all flown off to our different families and friends to spend another christmas, we are so fortunate ! i hope that you all have a beautiful christmas and a safe and happy new year, let us all pray and wish for only good news
