DH decided we would skip town and go 'outback' and ride a rail trail for 4 days after Christmas. The end of this trip would also include a few days in Melbourne, so no sewing from this little blogger during the Christmas New Year break.
There was a fair bit of cycling ie wearing lycra, sunscreen, insect repellent, pumping up tyres, replacing tyre blow outs (yes, I can change a tyre), sharing the trail with bounding kangaroos, blue tongue lizards, goannas, echidnas and hearing a snake in the leaves.

Then DH and I spent a few days in Melbourne and I fabric shopped with TJ of ThePerfectNose and was fabric enabled by our PR peers. TJ is an awesome sewer and we had lots to share. Here's her review of the day. I have some goodies that TJ gave me that I'll share with you soon.
Getting around Melbourne for fabric was even more exciting because the PR downunder peers were telling me where else I should search for fabric while I was on my fabric hunt. Thanks Sue, Lynny, JenleeC. Yes Alison, I still have some fabric from our 2010 visit to make up but the memories of these visits will come flooding back when I eventually make up these fabrics and use the notions from Jimmy's buttons.
