Monster Post

No nothing to do with Halloween, just getting back into the blogging game after a break. Have been sick since my last post and have spent a few days in bed, and taking a lot of cold and flu and cough medicine! My trip to Echuca was really good, my mother's side of the family all get together once a year and have a weekend away . We stayed right on the river and also went on a steamboat cruise.

The river is a lot higher than when we came up last year and the weather was great (not as hot as last time thank goodness). Also got to check out the three! fabric stores in Echuca and picked up these cute fabrics and this gorgeous pattern:

When I was about 4 or 5 I remember my Mum making me a Hickory Dickory Dock cake for my birthday (I am think of asking for another one for my next birthday after seeing this pattern!), and when I saw this pattern I just had to buy it!

I also went to Go Country in Pakenham a couple of weekends ago in Pakenham. My Grandfather (dad's side) volunteers every year and told as to come along. It was a fantastic day out. I highly recommend you come along next year especially with kids. There was a petting pen, lots of farming stalls and my favourite of all:

Cute little snakes! Dj would not have a bar of going any where near me with these around my neck, and my mum and grandmother were even farther away! They were really fun to hold and seem like easy pets to look after.

Also had fun looking at these little cuties! I had never seen a shorn alpacha before, it looked like a big poodle!

Have been doing a lot of stitching as well, but have some big news as well. Have started working 2 days a week here. I am loving being around fabric all day and are finding I am doing a lot more craft when I come home, which is good because some extras  are starting to sneak home as well! I am away for the long weekend, heading down to my holiday house at Phillip Island until Tuesday and will hopefully see some sun! Back next week with some finishes!
