Fun in my fabric world....

The week that was...

...and it went zooming by! Some stitching on my SSCS...nearly ready for posting thank goodness. As we have visitors, it was time to dash all over the countryside to catch up with friends...and some work stuff too.
 In the last week we have been to Sydney and back...
...Brisbane for two days...
...Armidale and back...
...Newcastle and back...
 ...a grand total of 20.5 hrs driving and  3hrs flying...phew!
Some stitching was achieved (thanks Fiona & Sylvia)...
a little shopping...some great food (Il Centro, Brisbane...yum!)
Back to work tomorrow, and hopefully a quieter week!

I was going to say the same thing as Christine. I could easily have lead you astray up here.

Couldn't do it all the time, but weeks like that every now and then are great. Looks like you had a wonderful time everywhere you went!! Love the little bauble project.

glad you're having a great time........your bauble is looking good.........and glad to hear the SSCS is almost done...........

Mary said...

I can't wait to see more of your stitching!!! Lovin' that last photo especially :)

Janet said...

Better not advertise the jetting around on your blog, you'd have so many inviatations to meet up with bloggers that you might not get back home for awhile.
Love the photos and your block looks great.

Cheryll said...

I'm tired just READING about where you went! Good on you for fitting in a little sewing along the way too! :)

Farm Girl said...

You're quite the jetsetter this week aren't you! Time now for some R & R maybe, or at least some quiet stitching time..........?
