Heathcote 2011


Our Heathcote Craft weekend away is always lots of laughs and we always come home exhausted from doing nothing but eating, drinking and making stuff....

We fitted loads in including visits to ops shops [where i got the most beautiful buttons], local patchwork shop and bakery for wonderful morning and afternoon teas..

There were lots of ufos being finished, new projects being started from books, to bags,

quilts, knitting and hand sewing.


As well as that we looked after wonderfully by the new owner Toni who is quite talented herself.



On the way there we visited a bakery and trekked around the back to the loo.

now i know a loo is not probably a blog worthy topic for conversation but it had grass carpet,

a lovely old vintage mirror and and never ending supply of dunny paper.

But...have you vere seen one of these? it even came with instructions....you have to press the side handle and wash you hands straight away and the water runs in the tank for the next flush!!


cool recycling huh ! The girls must have wondered what i was doing taking so long to photograph lol...

its been really hard going back to work after such a lovely time away, im really lucky to have made such wonderful friendships and hope we have many more weekends away to come.

Wow Jenxo what a great post. I can feel how relaxed you were just by reading and your pics. I had to laugh at the loo and never heard TP referred to as dunny paper. Hmm must remember that one.
Great post and so good to hear you had a wonderful time.
