Patch Day Out

The road to Keith's farm.

The farmhouse sits in lovely gardens.

As usual there was plenty to eat but a few flies (it is the country, after all)

so the wrappings stayed on for the photo.

Now here's a happy group.

Some days are just perfect aren't they?

Today we went to Keith's farm to share lunch, chat and indulge in a little hand sewing. The weather was divine and Keith's garden, a delight. How can he maintain such a beautiful garden AND look after his farm. Green thumbs for sure.

While we strolled around the lawns, took in the magnificent views across to the ocean and soaked up the sunshine, Beth's husband, John went off to help Keith with the sheep work. That's a change for a man of the sea like John.

When we gathered on the wide verandah for lunch, recipes were exchanged and quilting projects admired. It was lovely to meet Keith's Mum and her friend Anne who had driven up from Perth to share the day.

Thanks so much Keith for inviting us to your beautiful property and special thanks to Ros who did all the planning.

A truly fabulous day.
