Postcard from Tassie

Here's a postcard for Sarah from Quilt Fabric Delights, this is what she'd see if she delivered a PinCushion BOM to my place. My office has the best view...



Then we'd vist Cadbury Chocolate Factory to get our fill of chocolate, just 5 minutes down the road...yyyuuummmo!

(My son and his friend being silly putting the hair nets over their faces)

Then off to Richmond to see a Tassie Devil .... and over the Richmond bridge, built by convicts....

Then we'd end the trip with a bit of camping and fossicking for sapphires, my other favourite past time. I love sitting around the campfire at night when there's not a cloud in the sky, trillions of stars and watching for satellites flying by. Most times we have the campsite to ourself!

Ooh and if you don't like camping there's a hotel 15 minutes down the road!!

If you set up the camp, I'll go back CK in down the road at the hotel.

It has been nearly 12 years since we went to the Cadbury factory.

Now that is an awesome view.
And to think that you are within "wiffing" distance of that famous and great Cadbury Factory and that great chocolaty smell. Just as well you didnt mention the Salamanca markets - best you organise a "bloggers" workshop!!!
