Sawasdee Ka - Thailand!

Back home again after a wonderful holiday to Thailand! Nice to have had a peek at my computer to have a little look at a few things that have been happening and let's hope next week I will have something exciting sewing-wise to show - at least I do have a few packages from the USA to unpack and I have been putting that little joy on the backburner! I have just a few little glimpses of a beautiful country to show you and will show more as time goes on! Above - beautiful orchids at a local nursery in Pattaya - oh, I wished I could bring some home!

Yes, that's me - nothing that a good airbrush wouldn't help! Up close and personal, oh I do love these creatures even though a big soccer ball to the head doesn't exactly endear one of them, lol!

Overlooking Pattaya - a fun filled racy city and don't believe all you hear about the bad side - maybe I had reason not to find it being with DH, two sons and the sweetest little DIL on earth!

Perhaps my favourite spot in Thailand - Chiang Mai! Such beautiful countryside, silk, silver, cotton and of course those beautiful elephants! So tempting, but no - I didn't ride one this time - I must admit I did find my shoulders a little restricting getting in and out of the various types of transport over there let alone elephants!
I really must apply myself to unpacking completely before sewing so that will take care of this weekend - it will be lovely to hear from you as I've been darting from this blog to that with little time to comment. Enjoy your weekend and blessings to those who are affected by the ravaging floods in our country - oh, dear!
