The BIG Move

So here I am in beautiful Melbourne. It has seriously taken about three months to get ready for this move (hence very little blog action since Christmas), but it's all been worth it, what a great city! We have found a gorgeous old place in leafy Elwood and I can't wait to start exploring the arts and craft scene. Any tips for some good markets or groups to get involved in?


  1. So that's what you've been doing! Love Melbourne! We went to the Prahran Markets on a Sunday, many years ago. I bought heaps of stuff. I suppose it's still going. Keep us up to date with your new adventures. Good to see you back!

  2. Thanks Wendy- hope you and your family are well. Yep, the move has really taken it out of me - no blogging or sewing in ages, but now we are settled I'll get back into it. Hope your year is going really well. K x
