Today we took a drive up to Blackheath. Just a short drive away and even on the most dreary of days is a nice little drive up there.
First up we went by Ribbons and Rainbows on Govetts Leap Rd. Ribbons and Rainbows is a lovely little quilting shop in a little cottage. Not only do they sell a great range of quitling fabrics but also a range of buttons, trims, ribbons and embroidery needs. I have found some great fabrics over time in there and the ladies that work there are just so lovely and friendly. The ladies are always up for a chat and love it when little kids come in too.
After finishing up at Ribbons and Rainbows we went of to the Blackheath Growers market. I went a little nuts in there as I do any time I come across local produce that tastes sooooooo good. The hall is full of produce and ready made jams etc all made from produce grown in the Hawkesburry area. This time around I went and bought some Chai Tea, Lime Chilli spread, heirloom tomatoe mix, strawberries and duck sausages. Jazynthe had some fudge bought for her.....not happy about the chocolate content of it but how can you deny a 4yr old something just because it does not meet up to Mummies standards. Daddy would have bought it anyway.
Mountain wildlife family whilst in there too.
