That’s because I have 14 delightful days before I have to return to work.
My plans for these holidays are to have no plans. I have finished the Baby Room Curtains, so the pressure is off.
Today “Poppy to be” put the curtains up and Leah rearranged the room a little. Now, we just need the baby!
Yesterday I had the perfect beginning to my holidays, a bus trip to Toowoomba with the Vision Patchwork & Quilters Group. It is Carnival of Flowers time in Toowoomba, and it incorporates a Quilt Show. Our merry band left our pick up point at 8.30 am. First stop Gatton, for a little retail therapy and a cuppa at Sew Creative. Having been there recently meant I didn’t buy much, just two sets of self covering buttons.
Onward to Toowoomba, and the Quilt Show It was a very nice display, with several trade tables and also some tables with hand made goodies for sale. I added some fabrics to my collection here, and a bag of purple buttons.
I photographed some quilts that I felt inspired to try out myself.
After the Quilt Show and some lunch, we headed off to Highfields, a little place right on the edge of the Great Dividing Range, first to a Bead Shop and then on to The Quilters Angel at The Village on the Green. I added another two patterns to my collection, and some goodies from the Chocolate Shop to take home for later.
Then back into Toowoomba to see a floral display, a few of us elected to stay in the bus and rest.
Homeward bound, I began to think about food…..? I had been wanting to try a a local Fish & Chip shop and as it was almost on my way, I stopped in to get dinner.
It was a good decision, I phoned ahead to get the table set and drinks prepared, all that remained was to toss the package onto the table and dig in!
It is amazing how an all day outing can be so exhausting, I felt as if I had run along behind the bus all day, so off to bed for me to recoup!
Thanks for visiting.
