Back on Track.

Finally I am back on track with my Elefantz "Gentle Domesticity" BOM. 
Of course I had to start in the middle and then go back to the beginning with block 1.

 Block 1 - Embrace Your Homemaker Heart.

You might notice I don't stitch exactly the same design as Jenny's! Well sometimes I just copy the pattern and accidentally leave out some of the components and sometimes I change them by design. That's what great about these is, you are always free to chop and change at whim!

Such gorgeous designs to stitch by Jenny of Elefantz. I will be making mine up into a quilt as there will be twelve of the blocks to collect.

The Old Post Office.

On a quick family visit yesterday to my childhood home I passed this little gem.

Of course I just had to stop and take a few photos. I used to pass this on the way to school every day and I think it looked the same way back then! I think the hand rails are newish as I don't believe it had any back in my day.

Trebonne is located 10 km north west of Ingham on the road to Wallaman Falls.
The building is a very historic Post Office, operating for almost 100 years. It is a quaint building that appears to be held together by two rusty nails. It is still functioning as a private post box collection point today.

I never went into this place when it was still functioning as a Post Office! But oh how I wished now that I had done so when I had the chance!

Wouldn't it be great to collect your letters and parcels here!

Once we got back to the main town area this tower caught my eye. Forever on the landscape it was erected in 1953 to supply the town with water. It reaches just over 35 metres high and holds over 45,000 litres. Really only a big tank on stilts.......LOL!

With the sun shining off the tank in the late afternoon the top almost appears out of a brochure for the middle east.
It's so funny how much you take for granted when you are a child and now these small things make the place you used to call home a special place.
