My Canadian Cousin

Maureen at Stitch Back in Time, Tamworth, New South Wales, sent me this photo of Grandma and Me. It's a shop sample and isn't it gorgeous! The photo doesn't do it justice! If you are interested, give Maureen a call on (02) 6766 9088. The shop address is 1D Darling St, Tamworth, NSW, 2340, Australia.
Great excitement on the weekend! My Canadian cousin is in Australia for a tour and we were delighted to meet up with her on Saturday. Our first stop was, of course, scones, tea and coffee at The Patchwork Tea House in Warburton (above) then off to Healesville Sanctuary (in the rain!). Meandered around looking at the animals, and Heather reminded us of what we take for granted - the sounds and smells of the Australian bush and the strange and wonderful varieties of animal life we are so fortunate to have.
The koalas were looking rather bedraggled in the rain, but didn't seem to mind!
Then we dropped in at White Rabbit Brewery in Healesville to see Paul, also Woori Yallock to say hello to Mark, Rach and Archie, then home for tea!
Didn't stop talking the whole day through! Above photo taken with the timer - had to hold the smiles for ten seconds - it always feels like ten minutes!!!
On Sunday it was Archie's first birthday party at Lilydale Lake - but more about that next time!

P.S. Only 32 days until the jolly fat man arrives!
P.P.S. It has been my mission this year to find the perfect Christmas tree lights. I think I'm failing .......
P.P.S. Why does my list of followers not display correctly? It has a mind of its own - sometimes it cooperates, sometimes it doesn't!
