The Journey has begun.....

The caravan adventure has begun!!
We are (3) nights in and having a fantastic time!
We have headed west of Brisbane and are en route to Darwin in the Northern Territory.

The hospitality of  people in the country has been truly amazing and has added to our enjoyment immensely.
No pretences, things are what they are, and told as it is!

Our overnight stops so far have included Dalby, Mitchell and Barcaldine tonight.
1000kms travelled!

Just click on the caravan picture in the right sidebar to view 'A Long Way Around'.
Feel free to say hi!

My Creative space

Well the wheels are well and truly in motion here for the big around Australia adventure.
The excitement is mounting for this family of (5)!
The lists are getting shorter.
Farewells are being said.
Schoolwork is organised.
Busy, busy, busy!

I gathered a huge amount of motivation this week to finish the 'Winona' quilt to take on the journey.
Nothing like a deadline I say!
Yay! Finished, washed and hanging out to dry as I write this post.

I have also quickly whipped up several of these bags which will be used by the kids to put their pyjamas in (instead of leaving them on the floor).
They will look like a cushion really when they are stuffed full of pyjamas.

The Travel Journals were also completed this morning..
 The Sewing machine is being packed away.
Things are really getting serious around here.
Visit the blog 'Creative Spaces' for more  inspirational craftiness.

Preperation steps up....

A date has been set for departure!!
Very exciting I must say!

Naturally feeling like there is so much to do and so many things to think of.....

Naturally I am prioritising totally pointless things.
A trait that I have refined into an art.
For example, I found (3) identical Australian 1982 souvenir tea towels at a thrift store so they just HAD to be made into pillowcases for the kids.
Absolutely essential I say.
Cannot leave without them! 
Yes problems I do have!!

Thankfully, Hubby is doing constructive activities such as buying bird identification books; setting up mobile Internet; getting plumbers to fix leaking toilets; getting vehicle serviced; organising pool checks etc etc.

We all have our strengths I say.........
