A few photos of our weekend......


I had a surprise e-ticket from Jens to go to Sydney last Friday for the weekend. As Jens was already working just north of Sydney all week. So I asked Hanno and Rhonda to look after Koda, and Sandra to feed the chooks....and off I went......

Breakfast....love the background
After breakfast we checked out the information center and bought a Day Pass. With this pass we could use the trains, buses and ferries all day.........


We also caught the ferry to Drummoyne and walked around to find this little shop.....it would have been much easier to catch the bus, but we eventually got there.....


Just before I left home I checked my emails and blogs. I checked out MO website to find the address  and found out that they were having a Swap Day that Saturday.....


Trisha and I
I was having a rummage around in one of the swap containers and when I looked up, and there was Trisha. Trisha is Rhonda's ( down-to-earth) sister. I knew that Trisha went to MO with her group, but I never to expected to see her while I was there.  It was great to catch up with her.....




  It was a bright sunny day to have so many beautiful quilt on display outside.....



I love the way they blend their colours and fabrics together........




Love this quilt
This lady very kindly let me take a photo of her and her quilt

I spent an hour at MO saw so much, and of course I bought some fabric.

Jens and I then caught the bus back to the city and we went to the Apple shop, and then we walked down to catch the ferry to Manly for lunch........


Lunch at Manly Beach






Dinner at the Rocks and a stroll around to the Opera House






On Sunday it was very overcast and started raining while we were walking around the markets.....after a light lunch we decided to catch the train to the airport.

We both had a great weekend...... Thanks Jens xxx
