This weekend the Hoppo Bumpos took a road trip to the beautiful Western District, four hours drive west of Melbourne.
I rather enjoyed being ensconced as passenger and self-appointed navigator for the four hour drive each way. I made quite a bit of progress with my crochet, whilst voicing contradictory driving instructions over the top of Mr HB's clueless, but resolute, GPS (I don't think I much care for such gadgets after this trip ... that GPS lady is very persistent).
We spent the weekend visiting my sister who lives in a lovely regional town. Argy and Bargy had a fabulous time with their auntie. They were also quite excited to see sheep on an adjacent property. Bless my little city slickers: bunnies, yelled one, while the other exclaimed ... dogs.
I took the opportunity to do a spot of craft shopping in town yesterday. I almost fainted with excitement (on Argy and Bargy's behalf, of course) when I spotted the fabric pictured above. Oh, the possibilities! (They may be clueless about farm animals, but those two know a thing or two about farm machinery). I rushed the fabric to the counter, prepared to head-high tackle anyone who even made a sidelong glance at the bolt. I am now the proud owner of two metres of John Deere Tractors by Daisy Kingdom.
The perfect end to the perfect weekend.
