June 2017

June saw me take a road trip - SOLO - I headed out to the ChookyBlue's Chookshed Birthday. The last few years I've joined in on the cyber event, but this year I was determined to attend in person. It was such a wonderful couple of days, spending time with Chooky, Diddles, Lea, Kate, Allison and Jules. 

As always on weekends away, we always take too much to do, but this weekend, I decided my Down the Rabbit Hole was it, oh and I never really go far without a hook and some yarn. So I spent most of my time hand stitching and enjoying the company.

Lea celebrated her birthday, along with the chookshed, so of course there was cake.... and candles. Everyone worked on projects even ourselves... this chooky is definitely working on me with early morning walks.... we all embraced the fresh, crisp, country air.  Catching Sunrises and sunsets.
Lots of laughter and shenanigans were had. Which is always good for the soul. And this special order was delivered and much loved.

They did call me ma kettle with this lovely chair on the roof, which had me headed out to Nyngan. This girl was super solo and loving the big road trip.

Time in Nyngan is always special and never long enough. Love spending time with Amie and the girls and my special little God Daughter Evie is always grown up way more than I anticipate. This visit was about acrobatics... she's such a performer.
My Down the Rabbit Hole Quilt Grew a little more, I purchased one of Camille Roskelley's books and fitted in a little play. And dragged out Life is beautiful and did a little...

Bianca finally sent me some images of her quilt form her Birthday in April... so here are some better photos.

 There of course were coffee dates - solo and shared and lots of water walks and doses of sea air.

A New Design for Forever always a Shrug Shawl... love mine!! Who doesn't love pockets???
A visit to the Stitches and Craft Fair saw me enjoying quilts, stitching in the sun and sharing drinks with friends. thanks Deb

Then some Birthday love for my Mum, saw my braided selfie on a road trip to a lovely lunch followed by cake at home.... with some hand stitched love gifting as well, rounded out June 2017....

 it's only Mid March 2018 and I am on a new PC so it's catch up time.... watch out for more.


  1. It’s great to have a catch up, even if it is just for your own records. All I can say is that I’m tired just reading about all you got up to. So many good memories.

    1. Last year I packed so much in, thanks to phone photography, facebook and Instagram I do have a good record. But I do enjoy writing and looking back on my posts..
