Seeing spots - Library Bags

So, I spent the last two days wondering and agonising over library bags/totes. Finally, I settled upon the Purl Bee 20 minute tote, except that as I was cutting, I decided that I wanted to line the totes. So it ended being the 40 minute tote, which was probably more like the 50 minute tote as I wrestled with my overlocker.

Where I've been

We stayed here in Salamander Bay last week and it was awesome.
 We spent a few days beaching and soaking up the sun. Perfect weather and waves.

We ate home made food: my sisters curry,  my quinoa salad and baked drumettes. I'm going to miss being on holiday. Guess I'll have to book now for next year.

Where do you recommend in nsw?
