Lucy Departs Australia Soil...

Lucy's next adventure is overseas and we realised we had to apply for a passport. You know how these things take time, so Lucy has been filling her days hanging out with Lulu and Minkey. Here she is sharing her beautiful quilt made by Shay of Quilting in my Pyjamas with her friends. They love telling Lucy stories and of course she's all ears!!

Her passport was soon ready. Apparently celebrity rabbits are allowed to have special colourful passports
It's officially stamped and dated...

Lucy and I checked she had all she needed for her journey. A sturdy backpack, a shawl and beanie for cool days, a magic carrot that no matter how much she nibbles on it it'll grow back in a flash. A very handy travel snack.

I packed some books for her to read on the flight.

We figured that's all she needed until she gets to her next visit with Linda at Natural Suburbia blog. Pop over and have a look at Linda's patterns for knitted flowers and vegetables and critters. Oh my golly!! Lucy is going to feel right at home!!

Safe travels Lucy, We look forward to hearing all about your next adventure!

Lucy Visits Sydney and The Blue mountains

The lovely Lucy arrived at my house in the Blue Mountains last week. I heard a little knock on my door and there she was with her little bag, her lucky carrot and her beautiful quilt.

Lucy came with me to work on the train to Sydney. We chatted about her travels so far. She hasn't made it overseas yet but she's seen more of Australia than I have! Brisbane, The Sunshine Coast, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth... and now Sydney!! The view of the Harbour Bridge greeted us at Circular Quay Station where we got off.

A hop, skip and a jump and we arrived at the flower shop in time for a busy day at work.
Lucy helped me set up the shop. I like her taste in flowers, her favourites were these red Banksia Coccinea.
She also liked the forest of Cymbidium Orchids!
This native Gymea Lily is a like a giant triffid compared to little Lucy.

She may be small but she has a big heart!!

She made some friends...
But also had fun entertaining herself

We didn't forget the Opera House!!

The next day I got to show off where I live. The beautiful Blue Mountains! From city shop flowers to wild, free range bush flowers.
That's not a rabbit hole Lucy!
Breath taking scenery from Govett's Leap near Blackheath. This view amazes me every time!
And a beautiful clear, sunny, spring day!!
Besides sight seeing Lucy and I have had a fun time, talking about quilts, eating cupcakes, reading peoples blogs. It's been lovely spending time getting to know Lucy but I know she has places to go and people to meet. She's excited about her next bit of travel where she finally gets to leave Australia and head for strange far away lands...
