Mini Break.

 We stayed the night at Hill End, this is the view of the most magical place I know, I really love it there. I have  copy of the book written by Peter Adams about the people who live there with history and folk lore about the place, a really wonderful coffee book I think should be in everyone's library
this is the link about it.

This is my daughters two wonderful cats, Leah and Wis. Don't you just adore their feeding station?

Mini Holiday.

 I have been visiting my daughter for 4 days, a mini break. She lives outside Bathurst NSW and this is her view from her back yard. Just wonderful.
 We had a lovely time and I love to sew as you know and one of the things we did was make over her couch and cushions. This is a before shot.
This is after, Leah loved the new cushion from Target and they had a bit of fun with her. The couch originally had 4 separate seat cushions that kept slipping and we decided to make them into 2 by adding a wool blanket slip to hold them together then we covered the seat in linen/cotton fabric bought from Spotlight which is now removeable for washing. All the back cushions were individual originally but are now all in one in their own pockets, also removeable for easy washing. It looks much neater, no slipping, fresh and modern with a classic twist.
I had the best time and cannot wait to see them again.
