I went to Daylesford for a 3 day break with my hubby. I'm already on holidays so didn't need a break from anything but he has been working really hard so we decided to drive somewhere not too far away. Daylesford is the home to some natural springs and the community makes the most of it and charges the most for their spa treatments. I am not sure that they work but we did have a private bath at Hepburn Springs and organise a luxurious massage but mostly we just enjoyed being away and doing not much at all. The surrounds are beautiful. Here are some pictures of the cottage that we stayed in.
I'm just an ordinary working Mum who likes to do things. I am not really good at relaxing quietly so I tend to be making things all the time. I love the feel and colour of textiles and have tried my hand at tapestry weaving, knitting, stumpwork, embroidery - wool, ribbon and silk, lace making, mosaics, hardanger, crewel, and quilting. The quilting has only come about in the last few years as it is much kinder to my hands and I can work on it for longer periods than the embroidering.
