I Heart Long Weekends

This past week has been busy but lovely. I was down in Adelaide for work meetings at the end of last week, but also had a nice time with family doing some shopping and just hanging out :)

Then on Saturday my husband and I enjoyed a 4WD trek with friends in the Flinder's Ranges - a couple of hours away from my home. Really fun!!

These hills felt much steeper than they look!

Getting muddy .....

Look at those clouds ....

I love this old hollowed out tree ....

Can you spot the roos?

We enjoyed our Sunday with my Mother-in-law and then travelled back home on Monday (public holiday) through the beautiful Clare Valley. I didn't take any photos ... but think blue skies, gently rolling hills with lots of green grass and pretty purple flowers, fields of bright yellow canola, and cute little towns and markets - so adorable!

Talking about scenery .... and because this is supposed to be a quilting blog .....

... a quilted card. Because I've been out galavanting, these cards are all the sewing I have been doing lately. Fun to use up scraps and to make some small pieced blocks.

Finally, I have not been able to contact one of the giveaway winners, (not for lack of trying), so I have decided to draw another winner. So once again I have gone to the trusty random number generator and come up with ............
