What a gorgeous place Sydney is! Ive just been going through my 100's of photos and I really cant wait to go back, with the family and explore some more.
Jules and I stayed with the lovely Sue (on the left) and her amazing family. They made us feel so welcome and pampered, it was really hard to leave. Thats Sues sister Jenny on the right with her 3 month old son Declan, who was just adorable!!! We were also joined by Kathy from Rockhampton and we had a fabulous time!!
Jules and I became the typical tourists, snapping photos of everything and soaking in the Sydney lifestyle. It was great to eat a "grown up" lunch at a restuarant (no MacDonalds for us!!) and to be able to just take our time wandering around Darling Harbour and Circular Quay.
There was so much to look at and so much to explore and we didnt see half as much as we would have liked! But we managed to cram a lot into our little holiday!!
We were so proud of ourselves......we mastered the trains and the ferries and although we had to stop and ask for directions a few times, we didnt get lost!!!
Before we went to the Craft Fair, Sue took us to this remnant shop in Alexandria. It was a great place to look around and lots of bargains. All the Moda precuts and fabrics were very reasonable, so if your in Sydney pay them a visit or visit their website here.
The Craft Fair was great!! Lots to look at and lots to inspire. It was great to catch up with Chrissie from Blue Willow Cottage and to meet Sue Daley.....her work is amazing!!
We visited the Sydney Aquarium and I think my favorites were the penguins.....
.....and the Dugongs. We spent so much time watching them swim so gracefully. It was difficult to get good pics but they are beautiful to see!!
So what did I buy on our holiday? A few things for the kids and...........a few things for me. A Honey Bun of Hello Betty, a few fat quarters, ric rac, needles and of course buttons!!! Oh and a tape measure that is 120" long, which should make life a little easier.
Jules thanks so much for a wonderful girls holiday! I had so much fun and I cant wait for our next one. Where we going???
