Brisbane Happenings

Well I'm home.

Back to cooler temperatures, more  layers of clothing, the unpacking is almost done, and life is sort of back to normal.  Holidays go so quickly.

I had a lovely week in Brisbane with my sister and her family.  I have been over there a couple of times before, so we didn't need to do all the touristy things.  We shopped, visited a couple of quilt fabric shops (yes I got some fabric and other sewing supplies).  I still found time to appreciate the details on some of the lovely old houses we saw, and of course managed to find some beautiful flowers.

I ate exceedingly well, and had a fun last night at Eat Street North Shore, which was an amazingly busy place, with lots of different foods, entertainment, and fairy lights.

We did manage to find time to relax with some sewing projects.  While my sister was binding some quilts, I finished another bird and an ice cream soda block.

Now it's back to reality.  Have a fabulous week.


  1. Glad to hear you had a fab time :-) Precious spending time with your family. I've not done much exploring of Brisbane, even though I've been over several times - I just end up focussed on the family that I am visiting!

  2. Your time went quickly! Sounds like a good restful but also rejuvenating visit also. I love that photo of the tree.

  3. I love the ease and walk-ability of Brisbane. Their many wooden houses are divine. Great that you got some crafty work in too around family.

  4. Sounds like you had a great time, always nice to visit with family and create wonderful memories.
