every time i go to Sydney i swing by Retro Mummy . . .

Greetings all,
Well sometimes it IS who you know & i know Corrie from Retro Mummy.  We've been great pals for 'babies' (when you're a mum you don't necessarily measure friendship in years, but babies!!)  It's an easy friendship with all the basics in common, love for our husbands, 4 children with twins in the middle, sewing, baking & a healthy fabric obsession . . . so when i go to visit my parents, i always politely excuse myself & run off to see the latest & greatest fabrics at Corrie's house.  
 Come on, as if i could resist . . . entire collections of stunning florals . . . 
 & every coordinating style to match - all in my studio waiting to be made into beautiful handmade goodness!!
 Seeing it was getting late we gossiped while we measured, cut & coo'd with this little one.
 Then bright & early this morning we took the children to Coogee Beach for a swim, before the long drive back to Canberra.  More shots on this fun adventure later (i took 2 shots & the camera battery died) so the rest are on my husband's iPhone. 
So a lovely little getaway up to Sydney - a huge family lunch, fabric mania (thanks Corrie), car craft & a swim in the ocean.  Must stop making these trips so short & be more touristy around my home town!!  Love Posie
