Travelling north

We are just home from a 2400km round trip to a hot and humid Brisbane for a family wedding. And that's a relatively short trip in Australia! Here are some of my favourite images from the wedding, which incidentally was held at a golf course!
The nieces & nephews had a front row seat, but were more interested in each other than the nuptials!
Cousins, from eldest to youngest - a rare gathering.
Playing with rose petals after the ceremony.
At the end of the night - all that dancing wears a girl out!
I did manage to get a little 'something blue' finished (in the car on the way!) for the bride.
The pattern is one of Marg Low's latest releases, the delightful 'Sweet Heart Birdies'. It was a perfect gift for the bride - she wore it tied to her wrist at the reception - special!
The timber embellishment is one of many gorgeous designs by Barb of Theodora Cleave Designs.
Brisbane was hot, and since our accommodation was basic and pool-less, we spent a lot of time at South Bank keeping cool:
Of course, travelling north afforded me the luxury of taking photos of all sorts of exotic blooms that I never usually see.
I can't tell you what these blooms are. They are completely beyond my limited botanical expertise - feel free to educate me!
A long trip, but a truly brilliant one! Now, to get organised for Christmas?!

  1. Lots of lovely photos Ros. Looks like the kids had a ball if not the Bride & Groom.

  6. It sounds and looks like you all had a wonderful time. The kissing birds look fabulous too. I did wonder if you would get it made in time for the wedding.

  8. Glad you had such a lovely time, the photos are great. Loved your little gift and chuckled when I read you finished it in the car. I remember traveling to a wedding a few years ago still hemming my dress, and I was wearing it!!!!!!

  9. Just finished whipping up three journal (or in this case diary) covers as last minute chrissy gifts. I want to thank you for the fantastic free tutorial - they make super easy yet suitably immpressive gifts, thanks!
