This morning these fellows were having breakfast on the lawn outside the door of the cabin.There were three of them Mum,Dad and the Kid.And a couple more photos of the river.The water is so smooth that it is impossible to see where the reflections start and land begins.

Hi Everyone .Gosh It's a long time since I blogged.We have been spending a few days in a cabin in the lovely little town of Nelson-just over the border in Victoria.My Brother and SIL are here too.He has a boat so the men are out fishing all day.SIL goes a fair bit too.I started a cold the second day here so I have been just hanging out.The weather has been glorious.Cold nights and beautiful ,sunny days.Each day we take lunch and meet them somewhere down the river.I light a fire and cook the food and the boys trundle in and eat.Then we pack up and I come home and have a nanny nap.Quite nice really.Occasionally I pull out my knitting and do a bit on the booties for a sweet little girls birthday.I have taken some photos for you.The bloke with the fish is my brother with the record smallest fish caught by a member of our family.

About Me

My photo
I am a self taught arter crafter and I love to make soft toys ,dye fabric and paint. I live on a small farm in the south of Australia.It is a beautiful place ,though on a stinking hot summers day when the temp is high and the North wind is howling it loses some of its appeal.I have a lovely husband,four grown children and six extraordinarily attractive grandchildren.We have three dogs ,two cats,fifteen chooks,three ducks ,two geese and a few hundred sheep on our little farm so that keeps us in touch with nature most days.We love to grow our own vegetables and have a lovely big hothouse for the winter veg.I spend most days involved with crafting ,enjoying my husbands company and some days being Nanny to the grandkids while their parents are doing what they have to do.When we have had enough of everything and everybody we love to hitch up our caravan and disappear over the horizon for a while.I am a proud member of the etsy DUST Team and have etsy stores at
