Four weeks on the Road

After four weeks travelling 1500kms around our beautiful country, it was nice to arrive home again.  We are so lucky to be living here in such a beautiful country, lovely scenery, and a country free from strife.  While we have been travelling and seeing lots of beautiful sights, caught up with rellies and friends, and I got to check out two “new to me” quilt shops on our travels too.  But sometimes it is the little things which bring a smile to my face.  Let me share some with you.

What a wonderful trip you have had, every photo brings memories to me of when we travelled so many years ago. But... always so good to be home again.
