A quilt completed!




















I recently completed my Calicozy quilt, pattern by Alicia Paulson - her post about it is here.   I chose my own fabrics and just  purchased the pattern and instructions.  I am thrilled with it! For a first project, it turned out better than I gave myself credit for (*puff out chest!)...

I blogged today, using Blog Pro and it published but I think the pics take a long time to load.  Not quite sure how else to fix it.  My next solution will have to be updating my pc but I still want to be able to blog while on the move.  Anyone else using a good platform for use on an iPhone 6 and iPad?

Land Rover Award

I am attempting blogging on my iPad with Blog Touch Pro - if this fails, my iPad may end up embedded in the wall! 

Waaay back on Friday, May 5th, we flew to Sydney to attend the Land Rover Retailer of the Year awards. 
 
We have a fantastic team of employees who help make this possible.  We are beyond pleased!

Blogo trouble again...

I am sick of these apps that fail after a certain amount of time. Blogo now tells me my 'photo limit' has been reached! It gives no solution how to fix the problem.

I paid a subscription to this useless app but have had no support from them since trying to trouble shoot this problem. No emails have been replied to, so I am furious!

So, bear with me while I try and sort this out!

Sunrise at Lake Tyrrell...

Monday 24th April, 2017
I set the alarm for 6.15am to give us time to properly wake then get down to the lake for the beginning of the sunrise...
It would be so spectacular if the lake was fuller but we were not disappointed by the colours...
Our free camp spot, right next to the highway - it was a bit noisy with trucks rumbling through!
Our last camp breakfast! We love how the toast cooks on the BabyQ grill (just put foil underneath and it toasts beautifully)...
When we arrived at the camp site, there was a lot of rubbish left in the stone barbecue by inconsiderate piggy people. Lots of bottles, cans, fast food packaging and worse, nappies and wet wipes which do not biodegrade...
I got a bag and a pair of long tongs and went on a walk to gather as much as would fit in the bag. Disgusting! It makes my blood boil! There are council bins down at the viewing platform but people are too lazy to carry it 500 metres. When we pack up camp, we do not leave a bottle cap, tissue - nothing! Leave only tyre tracks!
We were going to have another night closer to home but rain is forecast for the afternoon. Packing up Pearl, nice and dry means we don't need to undo her (pop the top when we get home).  We are getting good at packing up - Gus does outside stuff and I make sure everything is put away inside, ready for the next adventure.
On our way, we stopped to look at the silo art at Brim, a small grain growing community in Victoria.
Quite amazing that this artwork was completed in about 3 weeks! We continued on to Warracknabeal where we had a light lunch of quiche and salad at Cafe Peppercorn. Then we went on to Horsham, then Edenhope, Penola and got home around 5.45pm. We've had a great 10 days away!

To Lake Tyrrell...

Sunday 23/04/2017

Sunshine and big cloud skies!

This is cropping country.

We have come to Lake Tyrrell to view the sunset and sunrise and the reflections in the lake. Unfortunately, there is not much water in the lake where we can access it. They've had 20 mls in recent days so we are lucky to have any water in there!

Panorama pic...

Dinner was bbq steaks, a potato bake and salad. We made a glaze with some plum paste and dried rosemary which was nice on the steak...

We cannot believe how mild the night was and absolutely no bugs! We sat out with the OzPig blazing. Dessert was a sneaky icecream we had stashed in our freezer!

In and around Renmark...

We visited the Twenty Third Street Distillery...

...and tasted some gins...

We bought a bottle of their signature gin and a bottle of lemon infused gin...

Next we went to the Wilkadene Woolshed Brewery and had a beer and a 'hard lemonade' (8% alcohol).


We bought marinated pork spare ribs and Gus barbecued them for lunch.

We spent the rest of the arvo just chilling and used the pool...

Amazing sunset!

I made flat breads to go with the curry I made...

A nice end to the day!

Cheers - Joolz xx
