well a week ago we just made it into hobart, the volcanic ash from chile has still been playing havoc with the airlines in the southern states and along the east coast of australia. we were lucky, but others were not so lucky ! guests who had booked hobart cottage for the weekend could not get a flight down, so everything was ready, but no one was at the cottage !
everything was ready, but the beds were empty and so were the chairs, the welcoming home made biscuits were placed ready for the first 'nice cup of tea' or 'coffee', but the planes were not flying, so there were some very sad guests who could not come to stay !
so i suggest if you are coming to hobart for a short time or a long time, this colonial cottage is an ideal place to stay and so central to everything, just a pleasant 15 minute walk to the city, but it is a good spot to just stay and enjoy. i am in my role as 'acting booking agent' at the moment, while my friends are away.
then at home we have been playing with stripes !
luscious stripes, beautiful colours and lots to choose from, the latest swatches sent to us
how could you pick your most loved combination, i am still working on it !
and then there are more, but they are taking too long to load, so sorry you won't see till later.
and barbara is knitting this 'vintage' mohair wool of mine from many years ago, such soft subtle stripes !!!
and paula has just finished her spools quilt and it has been slept under, looks very fresh and good, all hand pieced and quilted
and me, you may ask ? i have just gone to the dogs since being here !
here is the baby dog
and then there is dear old luce ! they are not related, the baby is just a new edition to this family !
