My life has been in a bit of a whirlwind since arriving home from our trip to the west.
We went a lot further West than I had anticipated we would, and all in all we travelled some 10,000 kilometres.
Seeing the Indian Ocean for the first time was awesome ,and I must say I am a little bit in love with the State of Western Australia and can’t wait to go back for another visit. There were many, many photos taken and I will attempt to show little bits here and there as time permits. Many contrasts of landscapes.

Red sand hills in the Simpson Desert.
Since coming home I have had the Toowoomba Quilters Club Quilt Show to attend, a trip to the delightful town of Childers to catch up with a cousin, and a quick fling to Brisbane with my adorable sister to see “Jersey Boys”.

Sights of Brisbane (The jacarandas are out in bloom and looking bloomin’ wonderful).
P.S. I had a terrible cough and flu for the trip to Childers and Brisbane and only just recovering after almost 2 weeks!!!
The quilt show was brilliant this year. It just seems to get better and better and the new venue is working out very well. It is such a fun week being able to just hang with my quilting mates and catch up on all the new and exciting things they have been doing. Also good to finally catch up with my dear friend Shirley again (who by all accounts missed me a bit).
Not much sewing done but this weekend is our annual quilt retreat so I am hoping to get a bit done there.
BLOGSPOT – I notice Australian blogspot blogs have had the au added onto the end of their addresses.
I haven’t seen any notification from Blogger about this. ????
