happy and busy days

to continue the journey of the kingston girls ......... we are all now in hobart, the sun is shining and the skies are blue, a good friend is also here for few days and we have been having some fun and doing lots of just relaxing and also things that need to be done.

we visited the new shop of
so anyone coming to hobart must make a stop here
check out the posts on broderie to see our visit on saturday.

there are so many of these lovely windows that are truly inspirational for colour and patchwork!

out at the farm there are also some friends who always enjoy a visit

tango, scarlet and sparky are miniature horses, the two in front are always happy for a pat, mum in the back is more reserved and stands back just looking on!
and we love this old girl, she is fifty years old and is starting a new life with a part time farmer

and i also had a flashback from years ago, how many of you remember these, before the days of electric blankets and the modern comforts that we all take for granted

last night i thought i had put my electric blanket on and was looking forward to the comfort on my aching body and it was not on!!! one click too far!!!

more adventures in hobart soon !
