Hope all is well with you.
Since my last blog post I have been on a short holiday just 65 kilometres west of Sydney visiting the World Heritage Blue Mountains and it's breathtaking scenery. I love the mountains fresh air and crisp coolness on your face during winter. It is cold there and can snow sometimes. I love the eucalypt tall gum trees, the cliff top lookouts, walking tracks to waterfalls, misty mornings and nights. The luxury Hotels and Resorts and the Resturants and Cafes". Always with a big open fire to keep warm in Winter.
The Dalai Lama was visiting Australia and was in the mountains when we where there. We could hear the voices and music but we couldn't get close to him with all the security. He stayed in the beautiful Fairmont Resort with it's beautiful panoramic views as far as the eye could see. We couldn't even get in for a coffee!!
We did go to the Heritage listed Carrington and enjoyed some time there.
Felt like we were going into a bygone era .It was opened in 1833 as a Mountain Retreat.
Wentworth Falls and The Three Sisters at Echo Point lookout.
The Scenic Railway. Very steep to the bottom. The steepest Railway incline in the world.
The Scenic Sky Way video. Blue Mountains Katoomba.
Before I leave this post I must show my friend Lynn's lovely colour matched black and white prints in this amazing quilt. My camera photo doesn't show how striking it looks . I must try for another photo soon as it is lovely.
I made a quick mug rug to keep my coffee hot
The mug rug was as fun to sew. I have finished some UFO's which I am happy about, but still have some more !!!
Stay Happy and Well.
Till next time Jen x
