It's Been a While.

It was lovely to be away but lovely to get home from our trip. Returning to normal routines has been a little slow. Now we have school holidays here and it has been full on and back into the run of things really quick, with 4 early teen grandchildren  here. I can't seem to get out of the kitchen, they are always wanting food .You cant fill them!!. I cook cakes and biscuits and they don't even get time to cool and they are gone. haha.
I was happy to get back to sewing class with my dear friends on a Tuesday after 4 weeks being awayThere was some show and tell .
Lee made a runner and a Christmas tree ornament which was lovely. Love the blues for Christmas they make a nice change.



 
 Kay made a very pretty quilt for her grandaughter.



 
We visited a museum in a little country town and came across these old sewing machines some like I have never seen before. I couldn't find the dates for them there.


Also a small Lace iron.
 
We had fun looking out for the letterboxes in the front of some of the  properties or cattle stations as we drove past. They were very unusual and unique.
 Some Cattle Stations are bigger here in Australia  than European Countries. The size and remoteness defines the lifestyle.

 
This is one of the largest in Australia. The Australian Cattle Stations are by far the biggest in the world . The nearest human settlement is a days drive away in some cases. They  can drive 200 kms or more to go to their front gate. If you want Google Australian Cattle Stations and you will see more of these properties some huge ones with their sizes and remoteness.

Letter boxes along the way.




 
 Here we are camped by the river. A lovely spot for Bird Watching.
 Kangaroos resting in the park in the shade of the trees where we stopped for a coffee break.

Here I am enjoying the noises of the bush . I look a bit serious here  but It was very relaxing walking the bush trails.
One more week till school holidays finish and then I am looking foreward to finishing some of my projects .I just don't seem to be getting my sewing time of late.
Glad to be back on here with my bloggie friends.
Happy Sewing.
Your friend Jen x
