Here I am back in Canberra which is amazingly mild for this time of the year.
The trip to Central Australia was a blast but I did feel a twinge at missing the Greenhills stitching weekend. By all accounts it was fantastic fun – lots of stitching, friendship, laughter, chat and good food.
Our wonderful Jillian Bath took lots of great photos for you……..if you want a closer look just click on the photo
Ruth was working on this bright appliqué
