Family matters

I have been away.  Did you miss me?

I went to Sydney for a week to visit my family and attend my Uncle Ted's 90th birthday celebrations.

These are some of my lovely cousins - L to R - Sandra, Pam, me, Yvonne (the baby) and Rhonda.  It has been years since we were all together at one time.  The opportunities are rare now.

This is the "birthday boy" Edward J (Ted) Bennett.  Still looks handsome and has a smooth tongue.  Always ready with a compliment.

This is my Aunty Val - my mother's youngest sister.  Is there a family resemblance?  Yes indeed!

We had the luncheon at the Mosman RSL club, on the lower north shore of Sydney.  There are views right to the harbour from this roof top dining area.

I stayed with my cousin Pam for the first few days, then went to Newcastle for a visit.  Back to Sydney and to Rhonda's house are Killara.  I was lucky enough to meet up with my quilting buddies Sharon one day and with Maureen another day.  Went to a few quilt shops including Material Obsession which I have wanted to visit for years.  I have both their books, and really wanted to see the shop.  I also went to a new shop in Balmain - Calico and Ivy.  Very pretty shop with lots of Liberty fabrics, and lovely yarns as well.

Now back to the real world and work.........need to get into that sewing room. 


  1. Glad you had a nice time in Sydney! Thanks for the heads up to the new shop in Balmain!!!

  2. We did miss you Wendy, but it looks like you had a great time with your lovely rellies!
