another Bruny Easter

We had some beautiful autumn weather, quite warm some days. Here's a view of the oyster lease, there's a permanent mooring on the far side there and we often see a yacht or cruiser moored for the weekend. It does add nicely to the scene.

I love how the water is always changing with each mood the day brings forth. I've enjoyed my break from oyster farming and to slowly take in the sights and sounds around me.

So we're home now and I've finally caught up on 4 days worth of blog reading, wasn't easy!! Especially when the internet is playing up on the home PC, Ant and I have to fight over the laptop - I'm glad I woke up early this morning....

The generosity of people really knows no bounds.

My dear dear friend B mentioned to one of her clients that an old girlfriend was expecting, and before she knew it said client had whipped up a boxful of knitted goods which arrived on my doorstep this morning.
I'm so overwhelmed and very very touched. To receive these items, made with such skill, from a woman I've never met is simply astonishing. I'm extremely thankful. There's boy and girl stuff in there, so we'll have to wait and see which gets used!


  1. I travelled about the D'entrecasteaux Channel area od Tassie a few years ago I simply loved it. The play of light on the water is breathtaking. Made me wish I was an artist. We didn't make it to Bruny on that trip. Guess I'll just have to go again! How wonderful to receive an unsolicited gift like that. Such pretty items too.

    BTW - how is *the bun* and *the oven*?
    Happy Stitching...Ann :)

  2. We live in a very special place.

  3. Love the little jackets...and how special is that!!! Gorgeous pics of Bruny...you live in a really special part of Australia!!! Hope you had a great Easter break ♥x

  4. What a wonderful place to live and raise a family. The baby items are beautiful. xo

  5. The scenery is stunning as always. What a wonderful Easter you must have had.
    How are you doing? I hate to say I have been following along and I can't remember quite when you are due. The little sweaters are beautiful. They will be great for a little boy or girl. Take care,

  6. How lovely is that? I forget... how long till baby is due now? I am getting excited, and I don't even know you! DOH
