I'm in Tasmania at present having a four day holiday with my friend, Hilary. We are enjoying a few fantastic days before the busy period for both of us starts with our work. Hilary is a dog groomer and from here until Christmas things get really busy for her. And, as we know the life of a machine quilter is never her own leading up til Christmas. We are enjoying the most gorgeous weather here, Tasmania had been in drought for the past 3 years but it seems that has broken - there is water EVERYWHERE!!! These are photos that were taken, yesterday, during a walk along the banks of the Meander River in Deloraine - what a gorgeous little town - we just loved it!
