I"m hopping across the ditch

Yes, that's how a lot of New Zealanders refer to the 3 hour flight to Australia. Many kiwis (especially those of us who live south of Auckland) like to go to Australia in winter, because Sydney and Brisbane are significantly warmer that New Zealand at this time of the year.

Tomorrow I'm off to Sydney for a week, so I will be taking a break from blogging. However, I won't be taking a total break from quilting, because I"m going to the Material Obsession shop. I've got the bus route all worked out, so there's no stopping me now.

I'll report back in a week's time, hopefully with some goodies to show.
