I'm back!

We have had a lovely cool few days in Thredbo this week. Most well known for snow skiing in the winter, it was still a great destination for a summer family holiday. We walked the 13km trail to the top of Mt. Kosciusko, the highest point of Australia, and enjoyed lots of rides on the chairlift and bobsled. There was even some snow at the top to play in.

Hubby hasn't downloaded the photos yet, but this is the view from our apartment. Not nearly as impressive as you'd expect our highest mountain to look, but still a beautiful environment.

Unfortunately the rest of the country seems to be VERY hot, including Mudgee, we came home to 39 degrees. I think it's going to be a long, hot week. Stay safe and cool in this terrible weather.
On our way home today we stopped at Canowindra, and just happened to park right outside the patchwork shop! It was a beautiful old shop, Debbie was lovely, and a couple of fq's fell into my bag.

The historic main street had some lovely old buildings, galleries and quirky shops. The Bendy Street Emporium was closing a key collector I could not leave this magnificent key behind. It's made from Mangowood. Now to find a place for it.

Tomorrow I'm going to sort out my projects and make a list of what needs to be done........if I'm not too wilted!
