A weekend away

We have just come home from a lovely weekend away in Hobart, it was a great time had by us all. The reason we went was so hubby and 3 sons could go to the cricket last night. While they were gone I stayed behind in the cabin with just my stitching for company. It was wonderful. I got lots done. Hows this for a bed, I've never seen a triple bunk bed before, the boys thought it was pretty cool.
I love looking at this bridge, its so pretty as you get close then drive over it,

I found this magazine in the newsagent, I've been after it for ages. It has some beautiful blocks I want to make.


A trip to Hobart wouldn't be complete without a visit to The Quilted Crow. Deidre made me a cup of tea when I got there which was so nice. I bought these lovely fabrics. I loved the all over design fabric, full of pretty reproduction diamonds.



I found these fabrics at Big W, they are so nice and weren't very expensive. Now I just need to think of something to make with them. Have a good week everyone.

Did the boys enjoy the cricket? I'm a cricket tragic so envious of them attending the game. Amazing fabric buys from Big W. I'll have to visit my local one and see what they have. How lovely of Deidre to treat you to tea. Fantastic fabrics - especially the allover print. Well done! Ann :-)
