I walked past this display in Geelong Myer..how good do these stars look
I had heard of this project but not seen any of the stars before, it should look amazing all together.
The beautiful Lions Quilt was on display at the Quilt In, I missed most of the talk sadly as I was in the kitchen, but I understand the Lions Quilters are fund raising to establish a quilt museum.
I had to zoom in and the photo is fuzzy I am sorry but the detail was so beautiful, there is braille on the tree stem , dates in the leaves and some of the flowers represent wheel chairs, others eyes, I am sure there was more but that's all I caught.
Our speaker was Michele Hill, she was talking about her journey with Beatrix Potter and the quilts she has made and the book she has published, Michele was also asked to make a replica of Beatrix Potter's parents wedding quilt....made in 1863.
the original is on the left, the new one on the right. The new one is off to the UK and will be displayed in the home of Beatrix Potter.

Marg stitching away
Tracee as you might now is never easy to get a photo of...this is the moving one
now she is sitting stitching...still!!!
This quilt was shown at show and tell. It was brought in by a man who had a stall at the market next door. It was made by his wife who was a book illustrator, sadly she passed away four months ago. Such a beautiful quilt, love the fish!! (sorry about the photo quality.)
More show and tell
Loved this one.
and this one..which might just have been made by Marg!!
Thus was very pretty too.
I got home at 5.15 pm last night, had a quick shower and change and we drove into Melbourne for a friends 60th birthday celebration. We had a great night and caught up with friends we hadn't seen for a while.
I was given this present for my 60th...nothing better than a birthday that continues on and on!! Isn't it beautifully wrapped.
and inside was this gorgeous frog teapot!
Playing ladies with my new teapot!!
Isn't that cute!!
We got home last night near 1 o'clock so I was a bit tired!! But this morning had to be up bright and early as we had visitors from NZ calling in to say hello for morning tea.
We had a great visit and catch up, this afternoon has been a sit on the couch time..not much has been happening!!
I am slowly catching up with blog reading and book reading and am off to sit back on the couch!!
