Brisbane craft show

Brisbane Craft show.....
A fun day with Sandi and Nor.....
Coffee and cake are a must as one needs sustenance for shopping...


We met Jenny who was visiting from Bundaberg, which was really great.....



Oh dear....I didn't get a photo of Norreen.....

Not many purchases for me this time....
A fun day out.....

While my Mum is away......


I was animal sitting (2 dogs and a cat) for Heather while she was away on a Jet Ski long weekend......
Which isn't really not very interesting except for the fact that I'm not a cat person.....
Missy was very lonely so I took my sewing into the grannie flat to keep her company,
am I really doing this ?
......lol......


At least I got a little sewing done.....


Well since Heather came home Missy seems to think I am her friend now so she sits outside my sewing room sleeping or watching me sew......


Funny really......
at least Heather thinks it is......


Another hexie flower.....


That's it.....toodles

A lovely outing.....

We headed off to visit the Tweed Regional Museum, Murwillumbah.....
I have been wanting to see the Margaret Olley exhibition for quite some time.........
Firstly though we travelled through the Numinbah Valley, stopping at a quaint cafe for a Devonshire Tea......  




Wild life at the Natural Arch......


The day was a bit overcast but we still enjoyed the beautiful scenery......


Outside the Museum......





Sadly no photos allowed at the exhibition....
I bought this beautiful calendar for next year, wonderful photos of Margaret Olley's paintings....


Coffee on the way home at a very nice little cafe in Mudgeeraba.......


A very nice day........
