Grand Day Out part two and home

 On the way to the cafe I spied a little water dragon



and more stunning flowers

up close

Guess what?? another water dragon

and another - you can tell we do not get these at home can't you!!

This one posed very nicely for me, he must have been too warm on the rock to move!
Back to the clivias again

Loved this statue.
The sculpture commemorates the 150th anniversary of the birth of the Russian scientist, and founder of cosmonautics,  Konstantin Tsiolkovsky.  You can read more about this amazing man here.

Brisbane city from the Mt Cootha look out

A panorama including the city, the old tea house and a random tourist!!😄
Thank you for a wonderful day out Michelle, I had a great time.

Out the hotel room window on our last night in Brisbane.
We flew home the next morning, on time and drove home.
Yesterday I dusted off the sewing machine and did some blocks for an Aussie Hero quilt
Some yellow gun flowers

and some red gum flowers, the last block nearly did my head in  getting used to doing foundation paper piecing again.
I also completed this weeks Anthology block. A productive day.
Today I need to clean the house and then back to sorting this AH quilt. 
Happy stitching.

What a lovely time away and the weather looks like it behaved itself. You certainly did not take long to get back into the sewing once home.

Had a wonderful time catching up on your posts. Beautiful photos from your trip. Clivia is one of my favourite flowers. Your flower blocks look really amazing and so intricate.

Sue - looks like you had a terrific trip - Spring is springing for you! Today it is rainy here and cold; it is the first rain we have had in months and I am grateful for it. I am huddled under a quilt right now, and it is heartwarming and comfy!
