Holiday roundup continued ...

Christmas for us was spent on the South Coast of New South Wales with my husband's family, always a fun & noisy time as his family grows larger each year! And always an opportunity to enjoy the beautiful beaches around Jervis Bay.
We saw the New Year in back at the farm, catching up with lots of friends & reacquainting ourselves with our garden:
Many hours were spent knocking (I mean caressing!) the garden back into shape after weeks of neglect.
And there was just the smallest amount of quilting crammed in amongst the busy-ness.
The first days of January heralded the start of our annual swimming lessons ...
... which came in handy when the newly installed stock troughs required testing!
We couldn't have squeezed any more into our holidays if we'd tried! Now, onto preparing the family for a new school year, and perhaps organising some serious stitching time for me!
