Even if it is pouring with rain, although today has turned out sunny enough for my first batch of holiday washing to be hung out - hurrah!
Many of you know that I have been on a longish holiday and my recent blog posts were pretty much "pre-recorded", apart from the pool shots, of course.
Our holiday was a long time coming. We first visited Oz in 1996 with out two young teenagers ("what are we stopping for? another view??")
We have always wanted to go back but real life tends to get in the way on so many fronts doesn't it?
Not this time. Plans were made and we had the additional bonus of being joined by a good friend this time (and fellow quilter!!)
I may delight/bore you over the next few posts with some of the highlights of the trip before it is all lost in the memory banks of time.
So - first up, Singapore. My OH is very easy going but kinda insisted on us having a couple of stopovers to avoid the dreaded long journey to Oz. Last time we did this trip we stopped off in Hong Kong. Allan fancied Singapore this time.
We had 2 nights there and it was as everyone had said - incredibly clean, busy, interesting, hot & humid. With limited time, we opted for a hop on, hop off bus trip and one of the stops was handy for Arab Street - cut to the pictorial tour.........
Sheila, looking mesmerised............
Have you ever seen so much habby in one place?
Who could resist a sign like that?
But what did she buy I hear you cry? Not much, most of the fabrics were silks and dress weights but I found this-
So, Arab Street can be found by jumping off the tour bus - there is an info leaflet accompanying the tour so it's all very easy to find, if you happen to be visiting.........
I have more fabric holiday fun, but I will save for another post.
