Holidays

I have just been away on holidays visiting my sister in Katherine NT and then had a few days in Darwin.  The weather was warm and sunny but now back in the cold.  Can you believe overnight in Darwin it was 19 and then back in Melbourne it is only 14 during the day.  It was nice to get away from the cold for a couple of weeks.

It was great catching up with my niece Mikayla and nephews Thomas and Joshua.  I went to lots of great places and had just the best time I can't wait to go back and see them again.

This is what we got up to

 This is my sister Robyn at the Butterfly Farm.  The butterflies were just beautiful colours sometimes to quick for the camera.

 Mikayla, Thomas and Joshua with their carrots to feed the bunnies at the Butterfly Farm.
 Florence Falls at Litchfield National Park.

 The termite mounds.

 Dinner at Stokes Hill Wharf Darwin
 I even had my own place.

 The Croc Park.  I was the bravest and held a baby croc.

 The boys climbing a tree along the Katherine River.
 Thomas and Mikayla at the Katherine Show with the bags full of freebies in the background.

 Katherine Gorge.  This is a really special place and the highlight of my trip besides seeing the family.

 Kakadu - Yellow River Cruise we had a not so friendly companion swimming along side for a while.
 Rock Art at Nourlangie
I also visited the Darwin Military Museum and the Oil Storage Tunnels and would highly recommend these to anyone visiting Darwin.  In all it was a great trip and needless to say I haven't done much sewing over the last couple of weeks but I intend to rectify that I am setting myself a challenge to make some Christmas gifts so my challenge is to finish one per week not sure how this will go and some weeks I may fail but I thought if I shared then I might be more likely to work on it.

Until next time Happy Stitching!
