or took little side tracks to the coastal edge.

The road houses sometimes had some very surprising elements, like this museum at Balladonia where pieces of Skylab space station fell to earth in 1979.

At the edge of the Nullabor we stayed at Fraser Range, a huge sheep station (500,000 acres!!!) that is surrounded by the largest hardwood forest in the world.
Even though it had rained the night before, the surface quickly dries out.
This was our cottage on the station, where I managed to make some more Gossip in the Garden hexies.
We then travelled to Noresman and did a short mountain-top walk amongst beautiful flowering gums.
Now for a bit of a sewing update, I recently finished CCCQ block #24 to swap with Chris. I used the back basting technique for this block and, unlike the pattern, I did the green section as all one piece.
And some more sewing for Gossip in the Garden.
