Today we left Sydney and met up with our friends at Bowral to start our trip across the Nullabour. Our first night we are at the Wagga Wagga caravan park.

After spending the past 2 days cleaning and preparing the caravan for our trip across the Nullabour I decided to spend today making some new placemats.
I think I have gone red crazy not really one of my favourite colours but so many things in the van are reddish it seemed the right colour to use.
We leave next Monday, meeting up with our caravaning buddies Lance and Carol at Bowral, then head of to Port Augusta in South Australia. I have waited a long time for this trip so am super excited.
The layette was finished and has been posted to my son Joshua and his wife Robyn in Ballarat.

A bit late in posting my FNSI project for last Friday. I do so enjoy just being able to sit and stitch with so many friends. Didn't get to post over the weekend as we made a surprise visit to my son and daughter in law who are in Ballarat. I gate crashed the baby shower Robyn was very surprised we made the trip down and I did enjoy catching up with the 21/2 of them for a few days. The new grand baby is due early April.
I have been working on doing some Chicken Scratch and cross stitch. I have finished one tablecloth already and the one I am working on now is for our friends we go caravaning with. I hope she likes it.
My mum used to do this type of work when I was a young child. I have many of her aprons she made and her hand drawn pattern books which I treasure.

Firstly my apology for not getting back to those that left lovely comments on my blog.
On Monday 10th. February 2014 I lost my beautiful Mother. She died peacefully in her sleep and I was so happy and grateful that I was able to spend those last days with her being constantly by her side.
Mum was a wonderful wife to Dad for almost 69 years, a fabulous Mum, Grandmother and Great Grandmother. A great role model who loved life and everyone around her. Mum enjoyed so many crafts I have lost count, trying her hand at almost anything. Her great love was knitting. I am thankful that she taught me the love of creativity.

Yes it is finished. I stitched for several hours last night and this morning to get the binding finished on this huge quilt. The work coleauge that it was made for will be returning from England in March so it will be a lovely surprise for her after almost 3 years although she was in no hurry.
