We spent time at Tathra Beach, Candelo and walking in the national parks. It was the strangest sight to see the area so brown and drought ridden, when my memories are of a full and flowing (and at times flooding) Bega river and lush green hillsides.
We stayed in 'eco' cabins on the edge of the Bournda National Park. Every morning and evening King Parrots, galahs, cockatoos, rainbow lorikeets and kangaroos would come down and could be fed seed and pellets by hand.
We were even visited by this big fellow, probably after eggs in a nest!
The owners of the park must have know something about me. This is what I found on the bed spread!
I was very tempted to cut out a bit to put into the 'paisley quilt'.
Fortunately there was a 'therapy centre' not far away - Mandeni Needlecraft and it is truly as inviting as the pictures on the website show.
Here is the haul from there -
(actually the magazines came from the newsagent in Merimbula). Yes, you can see 2 pairs of thread snips and no, I'm not that bad at unsewing...the yellow pair is for Marisew, cause as Miss Bee says 'we like to have everything the same'!
So...what have I been doing since I got back from holidays..........
...and as soon as I post this I'm off to do some more. (If I can sneak past Diva because she reckons I should be finishing her quilt off...she's probably right, but we all need a WIP to come back to, don't we?).
Thanks for taking a peek over the fence....
