I am a wife, mother, granny and contented woman who is living the retired life in Gippsland.  I formerly lived in Canberra and was born in Scotland.

This blog is a place for me to share my knitting, sewing, framing, cycling, thoughts on books and aspects of life in East Gippsland and my travels.

  1. Hi! Just to let you know that I have nominated you for The Sisterhood Of The World Bloggers Award! Not sure if you got a pingback from my blog yesterday, so thought I better notify you! Hope you had a lovely Christmas. Yvonne xx

    • Thank you for nominating me for two awards. I appreciate your kindness but I will decline the award at the moment.
      Thank you for reading my blog. I appreciate the comments you make. It is always good to get feedback on what you do. Adults, as well as children, thrive on praise.

  2. Sear Heather, My name is Lidia Medina and I am with the World Spa & Travel magazine’s marketing team. World Spa & Travel is a luxury travel magazine devoted to bringing our readers & new refreshing content while building a community of like-minded individuals. Our company launched a blog this week! I came across your blog and loved it! I was wondering if you were interested in writing some blog posts depending on your availability. Our website is http://www.theworldspa.com and the blog is under “Travel Network”. Feel free to message me any questions!

    All the best,


  3. Hi, Heather, I am a nana from Trafalgar, the small town you must pass through on the way home from Melbourne. I quilt (in Warragul Quilters), am attempting to write a novel set in 1888’s Marvellous Melbourne and read voraciously. I found you because I’m looking at overlockers online. I don’t blog and usually don’t comment on blogs so am intrigued by those nominations for awards. Are they some sort of circular thing? They look a touch suss to me but not sure why. I will give some of the novels on that historical fiction reading challenge a go, so thanks for alerting me to it. All the best with the sewing, reading and life in beautiful Gippsland, Lorraine

    • Hi Lorraine,
      Thank you so much for your comment. It is nice to meet an other Gippslander online. Your comment about the awards is perceptive and the very reason I haven’t accepted them.
      Glad to hear you are going to try some of the books on my historical fiction challenge.
      You sound like a similar character to me except there is no way I would attempt to write a book. I hope you are successful in your endeavour.
      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment on my blog. I really appreciate it. Heather

  4. Hi, so happy to stumble onto your blog. I’m a wife, mother, woman who hails originally from Sale so I know Metung well! Many outings there when I was growing up. Love what I have seen on your blog so far. Stay happy and content! 🙂

  5. Getting very worried about your situation there. In our prayers all the time, and there is a bed available here in NZ if needed.

    • In my muddled state I neglected to thank you for the offer of a bed. That is so very kind of you. We are fortunate to have family who are not in the bushfire areas at the moment so we have relied on them but I would still like to thank you for your kind offer.
