Road Tripping Country NSW Part 2

After our trip over the Warren Bungles and travelling on miles and miles of dirt road, we arrived at the amazing home of an Awesome Lady, who shares great love.... I really enjoyed this our second trip to her home. and I do look forward to visiting again.... got to invite myself... just because I can.

Great open spaces, champagne, what more could I want.... yes well the beach does call me... but seriously I think I could enjoy at country change, this really is the life.

I got to spend some time with her in her Chookshed,  and with a challenge issued on our Lucy, to create a block from only one piece of fabric.... we got to it.... how many hours Donna???

 

 As you can see, I just couldn't actually make it... but its in my to sew pile and it will come together with the addition of a few extras... but I am impressed with what I did achieve.... after many hours on the one block we just seemed to click and I lost count of the piles of ready to go blocks we managed to create, swapping fabrics and cutting blocks for both of us and a few sneaky extras for somebody else special.

Lucy really amazes me, how this mirror and a twist or turn can change the look of a block all together. If you are interested in joining us on our Lucy Boston Journey Sandy of Shiralee Stitches is where I got started wtih a BOM.


 Brian got to do a bit of sheep rounding up whilst Donna and I were stitching, as it was shearing time. We visited the shearing shed on our way out.... I was blown away, with the speed which which they worked.






 And then we were off to the next part of this road trip.... with the roos racing us on dirt roads it certainly was an adventure.
