Being A Tourist.

Posted on | August 28, 2017 | 9 Comments

This delightful package arrived in the post last week.

Susan, from PatchworkNPlay, had a give away and obviously I was the lucky recipient. It really is a sweet little pin cushion. Thanks, Susan.

Last week we spent a few days in the north-west of our state (Victoria). We wanted to follow the Silo Art Trail. This is an initiative set up by these small communities in conjunction with the state government to create interest and bring tourists to these tiny towns. All the localities are in the wheat belt and the silos are dotted along the railway line. There is a lot of information about the silos on a Facebook page and also stacks of other sites. Google Silo Art Trail and select the info you want to read.

Here is a taste of what we saw.

We were very impressed with what we saw. There was a lot of driving between each one but it was well worth it. It was great to see what each community was doing to keep an interest in their towns and is a credit to all involved.

I am hoping to get back to some sewing this week. With our cold weather it is good to stay indoors. Hail yesterday and snow on the hills not far from us.

I hope your week has started well.

Cheers, Karen
