Up, up and away.................

Where to this time you might ask? King Island! The home of King Island cheese and beef. Yummo :)  We have friends over there and I also have some students there - well actually, only one this year because the other one, whose parents we stay with, has just started school in Melbourne this week. So, I will have at least one other trip to the island this year. I must say though that it is most annoying that we have to drive east for 45 minutes to fly from Devonport, flying over Burnie on our way and return, rather than driving west for 20 minutes and leaving from Wynyard airport. So why am I complaining - well, it is Saturday and we have to be at the airport at 745 am!  LOL And I won't even dare to tell you how much the flights cost, except to say that I could fly to Brisbane from Launceston and return for less.
I've had another very social week, done little sewing with Marcie, but have done a lot of hand work on my Stitching around the block. I did make another apron this week and took it into my friend in town today. She loved it - but said she would wear it at home rather than work so she won't get it dirty.................

Pity I didn't iron it again before I photographed it, but I nearly forgot altogether! The cakes look so yummy!!!
Here are the adult, child and dolly sized aprons that I blogged about the other day. Fun to make these ones too.
Hope you all have a great weekend and get time to do lots of the things you enjoy :)
