I'm disappearing again!

I'm heading off tomorrow camping with my family, a final trip before school resumes here in Tasmania. Hopefully we get plenty of fine weather. I'll show some photos when I return of our favourite spot which is just a short walk to a river which is really a creek where we fossick for sapphires, topaz, zircon and spinel. Hard to find stones worthy of cutting but it's all about having fun, spending time away from the gadgets and gazing at all the stars and counting satellites as they whizz by. I usually take some stitching but I never end up doing any.


Anyway I hope to catch up with everyone's blogs when I return, so make sure you give me plenty to read!


I've also received a parcel from Isabella, whose 50th post giveaway I won over the weekend, I'll show pics of the goodies when I return! Thank-you Isabella!!

have a great holiday. I would love to be somewhere that i could find a topaz. Its my birthstone. Watching for shooting stars is another great thing about living rural, no lights to dim the stars. Hope you have a great and safe time.
