2011, The Year That Was in Pictures (and words).

In March I flew to Sydney for Sew it Together.  It was the most fun you can have with a group of friends catching up, laughing and shopping together! Blogged here and here.

In May both children were Christened at our local small Church.  I made my first fruit cake to mark the occasion and it looked pretty good to me, there was much patting myself on the back here. 
Blogged here, here and here.

We flew to Sydney to be on SBS Insight. the subject was the ethics of eating meat.  I was there to represent farmers.  I have not watched it as I fear I will think I look or sound silly on national tv and I won't like it.  Ignorance is bliss?  Blogged here and here.

I went to craft camp with friends too and managed to finish a quilt top.  
I STILL have not finished quilting it!

I had an early mid-life crises and enrolled at UNE.  
I am doing well so far and enjoying the subject matter greatly.

There was The Flood.  It came too close to the house for comfort.  We still have fences down that need repair, we have it book marked to fix in the next week or so.

We tripped about camping at Mt. Kaputar, Lightning Ridge, Bourke, Canberra Zoo, and had a day at the snow too.

There was also the usual small farm stuff, and family stuff too.  It was a busy year, but a very good one.

I hope 2012 is just as good, or better for everyone.


  1. Happy 2011 and here's to 2012. Looking forward to another craft get together and we should get our heads together and organise a camping trip that involves rocks:)
    Good luck with the fencing and hoping that the waters stay away from you this year.

  2. Wishing you a very wonderful 2012!

  3. I missed that insight - is it online to watch? I'd love to see you & it's such an interesting topic.

    Happy 2012 Bec!

  4. Happy New Year to you too Becky - what a busy year you have had! I hope 2012 involves more sewing and less large volumes of water!
