Exploreing the Wonders Australia has to offer.

Hello Everyone,
Back from our travels just on 9,000 Kilometres from the mid north coast down the south coast across the bottom of Australia to Adelaide then up the centre into Northern Territory and back across Queensland into New South Wales and home. Being away for 7 1/2 weeks.
It was very relaxing visiting many small towns with long distances with rich red earth and far horizons in between. Seeing along the way Emus, Kangaroos, Koalas, Camels, Wild pigs and feral cats.  running beside the roads.
It has been too long since my last blog post and I hope all is well with everyone.
I just want to say thank you for calling into my blog. I am touched you make the time to call in.
I did find some fabric shops in outback Australia and have added to my stash.

 Aboriginal printed fabrics.

Wooden Buttons cut from small trees.

 I couldn't resist this cute embroidery pattern.

 This wonderful patchwork shop we found in Ballarat called Gail's Patchwork Emporium.
(03) 5335 9066.
Here I bought some lovely fabric to make myself a quilt. I thought I had a photo of the quilt fabric but can't find it .Next time.

Walking in the Botanical Gardens these Corellas flew in to feed on the ground.
I was going to upload 5 more photos but Blogger has decided not to upload and is takeing forever.
I will say goodnight and show them at another time.
Stay happy and well.

Hugs from Sweden where we now celebrate midsummer-this night will be the shortiest of the year
