Last Day and FNSI

As it is our last day before our return journey we decided to do a little more sight seeing around town.
The Hoochery where they make West Aussie RUM. You could smell the rum as soon as we walked in. Click here to read the interesting story.

We visited the “Zebra Gallery” for morning tea.

Lots of beautiful pieces craved out of the different stone.

We sat outside under the trees to have our coffee and homemade cake.


The locals were very friendly. They wanted to jump up on the table to try the cake too.

Back to the van for lunch and relax.

Tonight for FNSI I did not do any stitching.
Just cutting, gluing and winding threads ready to stitch more Hexies for The Vignette Hexagon Quiltalong. At last.


They should keep me busy stitching while travelling the 3000 odd kms home.
