Borenore Caves

Yesterday we all got out of the house and went about 17km out of Orange to visit the Borenore Caves.

It is not a big cave system like out of Goulburn, and where one has to crawl in the mud and generally get filthy dirty, but it has a couple of walk through caves which are dirty and muddy enough to suit an 11 year old without the parents having to get dirty too.

There was a fair bit of water flowing through the main cave area and I took this great picture of the reflection in the water.

It was good to get away from a quilt which was giving me grief, and I came back to it in a much better frame of mind.

Di's Hunter Star

Check out this beauty - as usual beautifully made and flat. This design is on my list of to do, and is further up the list than most because I do actually have the rulers and the fabric and the pattern - the rulers purchased at MQX 2009 - that's only 2 years ago - not bad going really? Anyway, I digress. This was done entirely on the Statler with designs from Keryn Emerson and Tammy Finkler, and hasn't it come out beautifully.

I have been busy head down tail up, but now it is school holidays so I'm working in amongst the "Mum I need....." or "Mum, can I....." etc. This morning I found this battle going on, on the Wii.

At least there was no fighting.....for now.
