Back from Berry!

We just had the most relaxing and lovely long weekend in Berry. We stayed in Mullengrove Cottage on top of Berry Mountain. re-Built and managed by Kevin and Sue-Ellen, the cottage is gorgeous. Nestled in a secluded spot on their organic farm, with no TV and an open fire, you couldn't help but enjoy the surroundings. I'll pop in some photos to give you a glimpse.

We made scones in the 'early kooka' as well. Delicious!

Sally the swapper

Hip and with it girl that I am, I have just signed up for my first two swaps. Yep, I'm jumping in to the deep end here and decided to go full swing! Through swap-bot of course, my first 2 challenges are: 1. embroidered tea towel swap. (cool) and 2. beanie swap (easy). I have to embroider 3 tea towels. I've finished one already this weekend. It's lovely. According to me. I hope the recipient will like it too. I'd put a photo up, but that might spoil the surprise for someone. Only 9 people signed up so far. What are people doing out there? This is obviously the one to be in! How cool is it going to be to receive 3 embroidered tea towels from somewhere?
