Still Here….

We have been in the quiet peaceful Sandown Caravan Park between Gympie and Tin Can Bay Qld for a few days now.….. Well it is quiet all day but a little different at “Happy Hour” when all the Veterans get together and have a few beers…


Its been great going for walks in the Pine Plantation, which the Park is surrounded by, twice a day with Lacy .


having time to stitch and finish the centre Block for Natures' Journey with Chooky and Susan.   YEH!!!!!


and happily stitching when…… not happy Jan…..


the pellon was folded double and I didn’t realise…Grrr…. I cut around it as I wasn’t going to unpick…


all fixed and getting on with it now…

Must close now and get into bed were it is warm and cosy… Freezing tonight.

  1. stay warm! Lovely stitching on the road... hate when things double over like that. How much longer are you traveling?

  2. Freezing??? I'd stay in bed all day - covered with warm quilts. The area looks so pretty.

    Your center block looks wonderful. Isn't it frustrating when you do all of that work on embroidery and then discover a problem like that? It worked out fine and looks great.

  3. it looks wonderful .. and time to sew .. and sort out as well .. sounds like the BEST kind of holiday x

  4. Glad you're having such a nice trip. Seeing more of the country, and still getting in some stitchy time. Nature's Journey is gorgeous!

  5. A lovely area...your centre blok looks great.
    Hope you can get warm at night - this has been the coldest and cold for the longest period winter we have had for ages.

  6. Love your centre block. Looks lovely where you are. Hugs,xx

  11. Lovely to be there and great to get some lovely walks and peaceful stitching done.... I also cut the backing when I have done that to avoid unpicking....
