I finally painted the old iron panel from my Grandma's that has been sitting here for more than two years untouched. I think it looks lovely beside the front window in a pale 'Antibes Green'. I'd like to grow something on it but not cover all the detail, if that's even possible.

Someone was a little more 'traditionally romantic" than I thought :-)
More sewing ...
and also some relaxing. I've been adding some colour and changing the deck furniture. Still a few more idea's up my sleeve for this project and then the next one to tackle is the study.

Pretty flowers from thoughtful friends and family this week :-)
My first experience with chalk paint.. can't wait to do more.
We got lucky and found some beautiful ripe blackberries on the weekend. Fresh berries and cream and a couple of batches of jam used them up!
Book covering is done - a back to school job I rather enjoy :-)
And with holidays over it's back to sewing too.. quilts and crayon wallet orders have been coming in thick and fast and my machine can't hibernate any longer!
and the last photo for now is my last bunch of hydrangeas, they've lost their colour but are still beautiful.

We have sorted all the 'girl' lego into its own drawers now too, which greatly reduced the amount of sifting one has to do to find a particular piece when building!
Mum got all the 'building from the plan' jobs while the kids had an absolute ball designing a town and making all the extra bits and pieces as well.
I remembered I had some road masking tape and we were able to make roads to complete their city blocks.
The farm yard and logging company
The horse park and the vets
Looking across town from the cafe past the beach and fashion studio.
and many more I don't have in the photos, police station, canoe rides, christmas tree deliveries, bbq's and camping grounds.
These little creatures are my favourites
And the lego storage trolley, all nicely organised (for now)

The views on our walk up Mt Kosciuoszko
Helping each other along, spurred on by the sight of snow. It ended up being too far from the path to be able to touch, much to their disappointment.
Almost there.. that's the peak up ahead
And we all made it.. a long walk (6.5 km each way) but well worth it. Even the kids agree now although that wasn't the story with about 500m left to the top!
