virtual blog world tour............

Since you've been such fun with the virtual world tour I thought I should show you a little here..............well since by the time we get back to Australia and reach my place you will be exhausted you better stay awhile and I can show you around the farm............see you never quite know what you may find.........there will be yabbies on the menu but not this mumma...........we often find some with eggs and put them back into the dams but this mumma had little bubbas just ready to hatch out.............we have never ever seen one like this..........(zoom in on the photo if you can)
and the same day Bookworm found an extra on his way to collect the eggs.............his is cute isn't he.............and he was a little friendly turtle poking his head out to say hi..........he was promptly delivered back to the creek.............(about 15-20cm long)
There is lots of cow poops to avoid driving on the road out...........
the traffic gets heavy at times but please be patient............they will do more damage to your car then you want..........
and say hi to the emus on the way past.............
this is the closest thing to a mountain near by and it isn't very big...........
can't show you the bedroom as it is a bit of a mess at the moment but I promise to have it cleaned up before I leave and it will be ready for when you arrive..............quilt shops are at least 1.5 hrs away.........so a day trip if you want to go to some..........I am sure we could fit some sewing in and you could use Fairy girls sewing machine
See you soon Chookyblue...............

to all the people who skimmed thru the last post .......LOL............some people actually thought I was really leaving for a world tour...............you obviously didn't read the 2nd paragraph of my last post..............LOL..........made for some amusing emails and comments.....esp a phone call from my sister.........lol..........thinking i was "really" going and why hadn't she heard about it til now..............and to those blog friends of mine who didn't get a mention in the post I would call in on you too but I only mentioned the people who comment on the other post.............oh and I do know where Washington State and Oregon are now (thanks Anita USA)...........and I am also having a stop over in Croatia.........
only problem now is I have quite a few more people joining me on the world tour...............guess you didn't want to miss out on the fun..............more the merrier.........

  3. LOL Some people actually thought you were for real? I had great fun visiting some of the people who asked you to visit them and will one day get around to blogging a little more about what you would find here.

  4. Love the idea of your world tour....and that your sister thought you were really going...you would be away for a while as well......!! You would have been like Santa...covering the whole world!!...perhaps you should deliver all the SSCS parcels if you run the swap this year! ...now there's a thought!!

  14. Aren't you a Sweetheart! I'd love to have some of your beautiful cards -- what an honor!

    That's hysterical about your sister! And Oh. My. Gosh! It looks fantastic where you are! Who needs to drive to the quilt shops -- I say we spend ALL day outside enjoying nature and let the mailman deliver the fabric. I'd LOVE to see your turtles, cows, emus and catch yabbies. I'm crossing my fingers that it will really happen some day! ;-)

  21. JPB - Chooky Blue you had better set everyone straight ... they think you're sister is stupid. Little sister offended :( I hope you have a great time in 'Sewing Land' - I hope you get to start or maybe even finish my handbag (2 year old project), my peg bag (1.5 year old project) or maybe even my quilt (6 month old project). Maybe you might surprise me and send it all home with Annie!! Love sis xoxox

    P.S. I am not holding my breath
