Yesterday (super photo heavy)

I met Tracee and Margaret in the city to have a look at the Making the Australian Quilt exhibition...the train trip was 30 clam shells in length
luckily the train started from South Geelong so I got a seat no problems.
We decided to go and have a look at the Kylie costume exhibition at the Arts Centre, we got our buildings mixed up and ended up in the National Gallery 
we found theses interesting mirrors curved around like the inside of a shell

having many images of yourself is a bit confronting!! 

the roof of one of the huge galleries was amazing

Marg instructed and Tracee demonstrated the correct way to view the ceiling!! 

just beautiful!

of course we had to have a photo with the water wall and yes Marina I did stick my finger in the water!!!

now we head back to the right building!!

and had a look at Kylie's costumes, they are stunning and interesting to see the changes thru the years.

This display was in the same building, these little houses were available for decoration and then the owner was suppoes to take photos of them in different locations and put it on an internet site...would have been good to do..

this my one of my favourites!!

loved this one too

there was a large baby hanging from the roof in Fed Square..the idea was to remind us we need to play sometimes and not be attached to a screen. There were big balls underneath with smaller balls inside, play with them and entertain the baby. Was interesting to watch children playing, the boys were interested in crashing, the girl I saw was working out what was happening to the inside balls.
And so to the Quilt exhibition...I will let the pictures do the talking here

loved this one made with ribbons from cigars

the lovely girls!!

Coming home was a bit of an ordeal, the train was late arriving, it was super full so no seat, it stopped at Geelong and I had to get off and wait for the next one to get to South Geelong and the took me over 2 hours to get home, was a bit tired by then. But i had a great day and wonderful company!
I had better make a move, the Supervisor has a vet check up visit and hubby wants to move his car which is in front of mine.
Happy sewing.

Wasn't the quilt show amazing?! And so extensive. Must get in to see Kylie's costumes. Looks like fun. Would have liked to see the Degas exhibit too, but I think,I missed it.

Fantastic! Bonus getting some clamshells done. Gorgeous quilts and very intersting art installations. Shame you had a dreary, tiring trip home.

Hello Sue,

Oh I had a good laugh at that ladies bottom! The quilts are amazing, so much history. Love the idea of getting kids off the screen.
Hope the vet visit went well. The clams are coming along nicely, like how you measured your train trip in how many you got done.

Happy days.

Wow what a big day Sue, but lovely. The quilt exhibition looks amazing. I have heard so much about it. And Kylie's exhibition also. 30 clamshells for the train ride was very impressive Sue
