Classes & Trunk Shows

So excited to have spent some time

teaching and having trunk shows

in country New South Wales recently.

Shown are a few highlights, as always should have taken more photos.



Always a favourite, my ‘Illusions’ quilt.



Another favourite, my ‘Heyfield Station Tote’

with the ever popular 3dimensional flowers.



A big thank you to everyone who made us so welcome.



On our way home, we stopped to catch up with family and friends.

This was the view from the road of Mt Buller, glistening in the glorious spring sunshine.

And below from a different road, with Mt Buller on the right

and Mt Stirling on the left.

Happy Australia Day!



While searching for images to use in today’s post I came across this one below

and another suggesting to post some photos of our favourite places around

this great country we live in. Some I have posted before and others are totally new.

Alpine National Park!


After spending Christmas in Mansfield,

we decided to take the scenic route to the

Ninety Mile Beach. First stop was Jamieson,

a small ex gold mining town on the edge of Lake Eildon.

On a glorious mild summers day we left  Jamieson headed

towards the Alpine National Park.

As we climbed higher and further into the park

on this quiet country summer only road,

the clouds got thicker and darker and before long

we were in the clouds and the temperate dropped to a chilly 4 degrees celsius.


Great Divide c


Although we were up in the clouds, there were glimpes

of stunning scenery.

Great Divide g


Lots and lots of dead snow gums, remnants from the 2006/2007

bushfires. If you look closely in the next couple of pics you

can see the road we are about to travel on before heading into more clouds.

Great Divide b


Occasionally the sun peeped through and it looked like there was snow

on the ghost gums.


Great Divide k


At the top of Mt Skene was lots of  lovely wildflowers,

apparently in mid January the display is magnificent.
