A Wonderful Break

Wow. I have just returned from our first family holiday for 2014. We took the kids to Rottnest Island for a week and it was absolute bliss! For those of you who have not been to Perth yet, Rottnest (fondly known as Rotto) is an island 20km off the coast - a quick 45 minute trip by ferry.

This is the first time we have had an extended visit. We booked a self-contained unit on Longreach Bay. This was the view from our balcony.

Day time


It was so lovely being able to just sit on the balcony and watch the movement of the ocean and the boats coming & going. We had some wonderful, quality family time. I also managed to read 2 books, half a dozen magazines, swim, get a tan and finish 1 of the stitching items I took with me.

This is the first instalment in Val Laird's free block of the month pattern, 'Shining Like the Dawn', which she is offering on her blog. It was a fun, fairly quick little stitchery.

I'd love to hear about your favourite holiday place and/or project completed on a holiday. If you'd like to share please leave me a comment.

Have a wonderful week with plenty of stitching!
