Slice of heaven.

This has been "home" for the last few days.
A beautiful old homestead on the banks of the Murray River at Moama.
Only about half an hours drive from home which was nice too.

We all had our own bedrooms with big comfy beds and bathrooms with underfloor heating (how nice is it not to have cold toes).

Our host Di, cooked for us all weekend.  As well as running the B&B she teaches cooking classes too, we have come home with some yummy recipes.  Meals, snacks, desserts the food just kept coming and it looked and tasted magnificent.  We didn't lift a finger all weekend except to sew.   

Sticky date pudding and home made ice cream.
I got so side tracked at all the marvelous cooking I forgot to photograph much of the stitching plus the girls were all very camera shy.  I'll take some pics of what I got done for the next post.

One of the old river red gums on the bank lit up at night, it looked great from the house.

Back to reality today.

  9. I have been enjoying skimming through your blog. I like all of it. It is nice to see things a bit further down the river or hill from where we are, but similar. It feels like I will be more in touch from reading your blog.
