Anni Downs

Best vacation spot:
Because we live in the country (a fair distance from the beach), my family and I LOVEV to visit the beach at every opportunity we can. We love going to Durras Lakes and Huskisson - two great beach towns on the south coast of New South Wales (NSW) which are relatively free of too many tourists. Nothing better than a little solitude, looking out at a great expanse of water with the roar of the waves in your ears ...

Ahhhh, feeling warmer already. BRING SUMMER ON! (as you probably know, it is WINTER here in Australia). I love walking along the beach, poking around in rock pools searching for crabs and shellfish. I once found a baby octopus! I also LOVE lazing in the sun with a good book and maybe an ice cream in hand. Ahhhh ...

There are also great national parks around the area so a few bush walks usually happen ... just to walk off all those ice creams! : )


Favorite summer drink:
Very boring. I just love icey cold water. How sad is that? I need to get a little more adventurous with drink.

Favorite ice cream:
Now here is where my interest lies. Ha! Ha! I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cookies & cream ice cream. There's nothing more delightful than the squashy pieces of biscuit to eat at the same time as slurping on the ice cream. Yummo!


Best vacation spot:
We love to go to Canada to visit family in the summer. My other favorite trips in the summer were Hawaii and a trip to Washington, DC, Annapolis, MD and Rehoboth/Bethany Beach, Delaware.



Favorite summer drink:
Frozen drinks such as frozen lemonade and frozen mango drinks. I do like a cooler once in a while.

Favorite ice cream:
I don't have a very favorite because I prefer Italian ices. On occasion I do dig a good ice cream. It is all dependent upon my mood but I like butter pecan, strawberry (with real strawberries), vanilla bean, and cherry. My current handmade favorite is white gold. It's got white chocolate chunks, butterscotch and walnuts. I do like to have ice cream in a cup and pour a bit of milk in it so that it crystalizes. Yum! Yum!

Studio notes:
My book, Sew Merry and Bright, has been published. I've been working hard on the Sew Merry and Bright book tour. For those of you who are new here, some of the giveaways are still going on. Go and check out the posts here, here, here, here, and here.

I have been working on a new website and it should be up very soon. Stay tuned. It's going to be fun.

Thanks, Anni and Linda!

I like lemonade from fresh squeezed lemons with not too much sugar. I don't drink it often though. I'd much rather get empty calories from ice cream!
