Travelling north

We are just home from a 2400km round trip to a hot and humid Brisbane for a family wedding. And that's a relatively short trip in Australia! Here are some of my favourite images from the wedding, which incidentally was held at a golf course!

The nieces & nephews had a front row seat, but were more interested in each other than the nuptials!

Cousins, from eldest to youngest - a rare gathering.

Playing with rose petals after the ceremony.


At the end of the night - all that dancing wears a girl out!

I did manage to get a little 'something blue' finished (in the car on the way!) for the bride.

The pattern is one of Marg Low's latest releases, the delightful 'Sweet Heart Birdies'. It was a perfect gift for the bride - she wore it tied to her wrist at the reception - special!

The timber embellishment is one of many gorgeous designs by Barb of Theodora Cleave Designs.

Brisbane was hot, and since our accommodation was basic and pool-less, we spent a lot of time at South Bank keeping cool:

Of course, travelling north afforded me the luxury of taking photos of all sorts of exotic blooms that I never usually see.

I can't tell you what these blooms are. They are completely beyond my limited botanical expertise - feel free to educate me!

A long trip, but a truly brilliant one! Now, to get organised for Christmas?!
