Holiday Time Views and postcards ....

Hubz and I went off on a road trip to Tasmania for a couple of weeks ..... 1500km by car then on the ferry overnight and drive around Tasmania, back on the ferry and northwards 1500km..... it was great....

Before I went away I sent off a postcard to Selina....


The postcard exchange was hosted by Sheila, and I love these little swaps .. so keep an eye on Sheila's blog if you fancy doing the occasional postcard... it's a fun collection from all over the world.  This stitchery is from a little extra design on a pattern by Natalie Lymer.... gotta love little fat bluebirds.....

There is so much to show you from our trip so I will do it in looooong picture posts.... these are some of our views....

Must have been ESP or something - Tassie looks so beautiful - I'd love to do a trip like you have done, Sunrises & sunsets over water are always so beautiful.
