Trip to Kiama and a name change
Unfortunately I still can't show any of my stitching as it is still all secret stitching. I do hope to do some work on Village Of Hawk Run Hollow tomorrow so I will have something to post then:)

Bren and I are still on holidays until Monday. Yesterday we drove down south agin for the day. This time to a beautiful place called Kiama. It is famous for its blowhole.

We took some brochures on some great cabins that overlook the beach at Kiama and are going to go and stay for a couple of days in February or March. Can't wait.

After Kiama we drove a bit further to Berry. We popped into a needlework shop there that I used to like but it looks like they are changing their focus to wool. Oh well, Berry is still a lovely town to visit.

Speaking of needlework shops, we have just made a big decision and, after 8 years we have decided to change our shop name from Dragonfly Dreams to The Stitching Post. The reason for this is that for years Dragonfly Dreams has had people confusing it with being a Chinese restaurant, tattoo parlour, escort service, etc. When we went from just having the website to also having the shop, we had quite a few customers who have come in and told us that they had passed by the shop in the past as the name did not suggest a needlework/patchwork shop to them. This is in spite of having a large sign out the front with "needlework" on it:) We have been wanting to do this for a long time and we figured the new year is the best time. We will redirect Dragonfly Dreams' website to the new one so we won’t miss any business. Bren is also working on a great new website and we hope to relaunch in the next few weeks.

    What a cool blowhole! I like your new name change - there have been several shops in the US with that name, it seems to work!

    Wow what a beautiful picture!

    LOL I can understand why you've been thinking of changing your store's name!

    Hope it works out better for you.

    What an incredibly big and brave decision to make. I am sure the transition will be smooth :)

    Kiama looks gorgeous!
