I don't have fireflies in my garden - which is a shame... only cats, bees, a dog and the odd dragonfly!! So please settle down with a cuppa, put your feet up and enjoy!

Congratulations Cadel Evans!

Congratulations Cadel Evans on winning the 2011 Tour de France! 
Champagne, should be a nice cold beer in his hand!
But then again he is in France!
What a superstar you are!  First Australian to win the Tour in the 108 year history of the race... what an amazing achievement.  Cadel is no longer the bridesmaid, so to speak!  He absolutely deserves the win and all the accolades that will come his way.

I don't think there were too many people in Australia that didn't sit up last night to watch him cross the finish line - we certainly did!  Tears of happiness for Cadel and his team were rolling down my face as the last lap started and he was within sight of his dream.  It was a great finish to the race as well, but the best bit by far was to see a fantastic Australian cyclist win the Tour de France!  Well done!

This is how Perth celebrated Cadel Evan's win!!

Til next time, happy stitching!

Woo Hoo! Cadel is a legend :D

We've been staying up until "stupid o'clock" watching the races, so it was good to see him win, LOL. Would have hated that all to be for nothing. *wink*
