Farewell For Now Sweetie!!

With much regret and a few tears, I drove Anne Ida to the Airport this morning for her flight back home! I dont want to spoil the posts I know she will write but I just want to share some of my favorite pics.

On the beach at Ulverstone. The water was amazing!! We just enjoyed the serenity and took heaps of pics!!

Meeting the native animals. How thrilled she was to pat this Kangaroo. Unfortunatley the Koala wasnt as co-operative (or awake!!!).

Enjoying the scenery. We went through all the photos last nite before bed and she has some amazing shots to share!!!

Got her on the chairlift eventually (then I wasnt sure I wanted to lol but we enjoyed it!!)....the Cataract scenery is amazing!!

I have had the most amazing 12 days. I miss her so already. It was wonderful to share my home and my surroundings but also to build on a friendship that began 1 year ago just through blogland. Tonite my studio was lonely, we have been sewing away like mad to create a Quilt top each (which we will share later) to honour this wonderful experience!!
Travel home safely sweetie!!!
Miss you!!
