A Trip to the Big Smoke….

On our way to Perth yesterday there was a young lady with a blown tyre on the side of the road. DH stopped and helped her.

It makes you realise how easy it is for something to go wrong. Luckily she was a good driver and able to control the vehicle and keep herself and little son safe…  After a tyre change and a little repair, we were pleased to see them safely on their way..


While in the city I had to find some backing to finish a few swaps I was working on

The store had a half price sale sew of course I just HAD to buy some fabrics to take home , LOL

this evening I managed to finish my swaps,

Off to bed now,

Goodnight,
