Today - the dream and the reality.....

It was cold this morning. Four degrees celcius when I left the house. (I know, not really that cold, but for Adelaide, definitely cold!) As the day went on the sky was fairly clear and if you could find a protected spot the sun was lovely. Just like this cold day when I sat in the car and enjoyed the winter sun at Brighton beach. Would have been lovely to do that today. But I didn't.

This is what I spent the day looking at. Brown tea chests. No sparkling waves. No jetty strollers. Just boxes. Filled a few, Mrs 24 filled more. Gosh she's good value that daughter of mine! She worked like a slave for me today. Grandson was here too being very cute (he's like that!) and walking to our cheers of delight and squeals of "Clever boy!" (Well if you walk before your first birthday I think you deserve to be feted!) Hmm..... so tomorrow? What will you be doing? I'll be packing!!!

Oh it was icy here yesterday too,and this morning we are being greeted by our first frost this season.
Today I 'hope' to get my machine out and start on some lil PJ's, not sure it will happen though.

Well today,after going through my sewing cupboard and rediscovering treasures, I'll be continuing some applique work on a quilt that I started when my soon to be 23 yo dd was 6! Enjoy the packing :0)

It's another chilly morning today, did you get to visit Patchwork by Sea when you took that first photo? At the moment I'm in the sun, I'll stay here a while before doing a bit of stitching (in the sun). Keep packing, it'll be done before you know it.
take care
Pip

Good luck with the packing I hate doing that but at least you have plenty of helpers....will certainly be interested in the bag pattern....I am hoping to start the curvy zippy bag tonight:)

Have fun I don't envy you. Brighton beach looks much more inviting.

I dislike packing, but the new house will be wonderful for your sweet family!

Question: Will the new residence still be called 'Rosemary Hill'?
or perhaps Lavender Flat?
Enjoy the move.

There is nothing worse than packing and the cold.
