Since we are moving to Sydney in December, we drove down there in the September school holidays to check things out, and to do the touristy things with the kids, who had never been to Sydney before. We all loved Taronga Zoo, and the photo above is my favourite from the trip. Of course the Opera House always looks great too:
We stayed in Narrabeen in the Northern Beaches, which is the area we hope to live in. So beautiful!
We drove home via Armidale, where we stayed for two nights, and did some sightseeing. The Wollomombi Falls were spectacular:
My husband and eldest son went for a walk together and saw an echidna! Hugo managed to take this photo with my DSLR:
I did a lot of knitting in the car (we drove more than 2500 km in 8 days) and managed to finish my Josephine Shawl:
Not too happy with the yarn I used - it does pill a lot, but I like the shawl!
And now it's time to start packing - in 3 weeks time, on November 1st, we move out of this house into temporary lodgings. The location is perfect (close to schools, gymnastics, hubby's work) but it's very small, so all our furniture, including my sewing machine, will have to go into storage until we move to Sydney.
So sadly no more quilting for me this year, instead I'll be knitting and designing quilts in Illustrator!
