we are going on an adventure...

Eeeeep! The countdown is over. Tomorrow we leave our Southwest home and we head North to our new life in the area unofficially nicknamed cyclone alley. We will be spending 2 nights in Perth before an early morning start and a 5 hour drive to Geraldton. The next night will be spent in Carnarvon and the night after that we will be in a transit house in Pannawonica. Our furniture and belongings will be a week or more behind us, so we wont be moving into our new home until the 29th. 

To keep me going I have packed a crafty bag of tricks full of hand sewing projects for while I wait for my sewing machines to arrive. I have a stockpile of magazines (refraining  from opening the latest frankie till we hit the road) and a pile of goodness waiting for me (hopefully) at the Pannawonica post office. I Can't wait! It really will be like Christmas!!

Farewell house. So long studio. Goodbye coast.

Speak to you soon!!

  11. Bec,

    You might remember me from a few months back- Michelle from Pannawonica, sounds like I might be able to honor my invite for coffee and baked goods soon!! Once you are in transit and feeling a bit bored (won't take you too long to investigate town!) I'ld be pleased to meet you- my kids are on school holidays so the house will be full (5 blessings!) Anyway, I'd give you my details but seen as this is an open forum I'll give you the email address for the Panna Gecko (Pannawonica's Community Mag, I'm the editor)
    I'll keep an eye out for you and yours-
    Safe travelling and know you are most welcome here!!

  12. Wishing you all the best!

    I just love your bag of tricks!

  13. Good Luck and Happy Christmas. Keep meaning to tell you that I love my brown and orange dress probably most out of my 3! I am wearing it today. Not colours I would have picked but it really suits me and fits perfectly.

    Anyway enjoy the adventure, change is always good, new places to discover etc.
