And to get this back on the topic of stitching


The topic was meant to be on the coffee break.
Since my knowledge of computers is close to nil, When a mistake is made, and nobody at home to help , it stays where it is. Embarassed
Your story is nice, traveled with you in the road atlas my husband once bought in America.
It reminded me of living in the south, at the Red See.Colours there are unbelievable beautiful. The see, the sky, the mountains and the sun and especially the sunset.

Happy stitching Stitching

Well I'm now officially back in Australia, "home" as some would say. And the weather (along with the time zone change) is just doing my head in. After one of the hottest summer's in history in Malta to then quite chilly and windy conditions on this same small island before we left, back to sweltering humid heat here in sunburnt Oz. My mind's about to burst!

True to form, it was a long flight and I've been walking around in a jetlagged food-poisoned (thank you Air Malta) daze for about a week now. We landed in Brisbane and were staying with my husband's family there, but now I'm in Sydney catching up with my half of the family for Christmas and hubby's still up north job and house hunting- hooray. I did bring my crossy with me to work on while I'm here, but I honestly don't know how much time I'll get to work on it- I've only got 2 weeks to see all my friends and family before I have to go back to Brisbane and get serious about finding a new job etc.

Anyway, thanks Fenny and Rife for all the beautiful descriptions of your various 'heartlands'- by the way, can we please have a full version of states and locations in the US? My American geography is not so wonderful that I know all your states just from their abbreviations. Aussie quiz for you: I'm currently in NSW having arrived from QLD and my mum should be on her way here soon from WA via NT. Fill in the gaps.... Wink

I will jump in with a bit about my home state, and try to keep it short. Oregon, pronounced Or-y-gun. About the same size as Washington (state), our neighbor to the north. Our western side is all coast (the Pacific Ocean), and in the south, it's California, with a smidge of Nevada. Along the east side of us is Idaho. The entire state is 260 miles (420 km) by 360 miles (580 km). The population is around 3.5 million, with the majority of this being in Portland. I live in the Willamette Valley, about mid-state, and between us (Eugene) and the capitol (Salem) we trade off being the number 2 and number 3 ciites, both with a little less than 150,000 folks residing. The saying here is 'old hippies never die, then just move to Eugene' - very ecclectic place. And very damp. Rains a lot. Not quite as much as some spots in Washington, but really close. We are huge on recycling and big time enviromental issues. Sadly, the timber industry, that founded the state, struggles with this. But we do have other things going for us. Crime is really low and 'livability' is apparently high. If you can stand the rain, and wait for those sunny days (which we do have), it's great. Most parts of the state have true seasons, but nothing extreme like the mid-west. I could go on and on, but that gives you some idea if you aren't familiar with the Pacific Northwest.

It snowed. Yup, in Arizona.

Actually, it doesn't* snow much in Vancouver, but it did that year, right about the same time he came back from his trip.

It's in the southwest corner of Canada... plus it's at sea level. Then there's a current of warm water that comes up from California.

Thanks for putting me straight. Call it ignorance if you like, but Canada being North of America,made me think of forests, mountains,icy cold and snowy winters.The countries most of you live in are so huge Confused Happy Stitching
