Guess what ...

Guess what - I'm still in the land of the living, been away yet again ... Sat of the last post I was staying with Luc & we went for our walk on the Headland - brrrrrrrrr it was sooo cold & windy - we needed to put our anchors out but, that meant nothing to us when we got to see the migrating whales way out to sea - ohh what a sight to see... their spurts/blows on the horizon. Can't show you any photos as I haven't sorted how to get the photos off my phone - that's the next learning curve for me ... but I can assure you it was very exciting. Just been talking to Luc & she is on the Headland at Fingal,as we speak with the binoculars watching them jumping and all that - they go up the Queensland coastline from June to August and come back from August to Nov. with their newborn calves as they birth them in the warmer waters off our Great Barrier Reef.
Sunday I flew to Sydney for the day to meet an Internet friend who was in Australia for a couple of weeks so what a good excuse for a Coffee & Cake Luncheon [C&C] with all the Southern BSL girls [thank goodness for cheap airfares]. It was so great to meet Jackie in the flesh & to catch-up with all the girls from down south. I even got a chance to have an hour at the Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair & before you ask NO I didn't buy a thing as I had to cart everything with me so no shopping, now really that took the pressure off ... ha ha but I did collect quiet a few business cards for later reference ...
Here are a couple of photos ...Here we have L-R yours truly, Jackie, Rhonda & Rob. We exchanged ATC's among the girls - this was my first attempt at a fabric ATC machine sewn ... And below is a Fabric PostCard similar to the one I gave Jackie as a memento of our meeting ...
