Some Christmas Travelling!

Some travelling around in the last few days,

has seen us visiting family around the north and the east in the state of Victoria.



Out walking at dusk on Christmas Day, Mt Buller looked stunning in the background.



As did Highton Manor, with the sun shining on it.



Back on the coast at a favourite spot.

Calm (above) before the storm. (below)



Called into Lily Lane at Rosedale who happened to be having a sale

and picked up some great fabrics for backings. Can’t wait to start on some new designs.

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.
