City Day with Friends

Yesterday a bunch of us met up in the city to do some exploring, have lunch and generally catch up....and of course a little geocaching was included!!! We met at Southern Cross and then went in two groups..the first off to what used to be DFO and Mel, Marg and I off to find a cache at Batmans Hill...now part of the walk way to the station and the footie ground....Mel was the Eagle Eyes today....I thought I had taken a photo but in my efforts to be stealthy I didn't as it is not on the camera!!!
...off to the shopping centre to find the other ladies......we did and they were shopping up a storm, so we headed off to meet up with some others at federation Square...

as time was tight we got the tram....

the shoppers arrive at Fed Square....they got off the tram and were talking so much they walked straight past us and up the road!! Lol!!

MargMelody, and Jo and myself went off to Hosier Lane to look for a cache...but no luck, we did enjoy looking at the graffiti though...as did many other people!!!

Off to Lucello's for a look around and serious temptation!!!
I came out with this beautiful fabric to make Christmas decorations...
we explored the other shops in the Nicholas building...one shop owner was Jose from Peru...he had amazing fabrics made from the lama and alpaca wool and beautiful things made in Peru...
..couldn't leave the shop with out these.....love them!!
we had lunch in the David Jones food court....road pork and veges for me!! Yum!!
Then did our swap for this meet up which was a covered journal..

Marg's beautiful journal from Barb...

Mine from Kim...

Jo's from Marg..

Anne's from me...

Barb's from Jo...

Kim's from Anne....
Some beautiful work here and it always amazed me that they are all different!!!
After lunch we  headed off to a wool shop......I didn't get any photos 'cos I got sidetracked in the English shop next door...and had to do some photos there!! lol!!
Formal sitting!!

Marg asking some questions!!!

Melody having a happy visit!!! There will be more photos on Shez's blog in the next few days!!

Heading off now......time to say good bye until next time......some headed home, some went shopping some more, I went geocaching and then met the family for dinner.
We had a wonderful day full of fun and laughter,catching up and chatting! What would be be without our good friends???
Happy sewing.

Hi Sue, I did think of you girls yesterday having a wonderful time in the city together. I adore your fabric & your shoe purchases :-) I laughed at your faces while you were posing with the Queen !! Just gorgeous. I remember the Melbourne trams with much affection. Now I have seen geocaching pop up on a few blogs but did not know what it was .... so I have just googled it now. It looks very interesting & fun & I did not know it even existed.
