The Race that stops our Nation

The Melbourne Cup, for non Aussies think of it as our version of Royal Ascot or the Kentucky Derby.  Yes horse racing at its finest.  Depending on where you live a Public Holiday.  (country towns take there own cup holiday).   This premier event is a highlight for many of our spring racing carnival.  The MOTH & I are not punters.  However we enjoy a fun day out at Cup Day Fundraiser for Relay for Life (Cancer Research)

It’s been ages since I dusted off my Pretty Heels, today was the day. Now my knee etc seem in tip top shape.  I just need to remember how to walk in them.


After an incredible lunch the raffles began.  Our table scooped the pool.  The MOTH & I scored 4 prizes, yeah.   A yummy basket of homemade Jams, relishes & cookies,  Anti wrinkle cream, WedgeWood candy dish & some scratchies.

Ciao for now, Happy Stitching ❤ Debbierose xx
