Knitting found in strange places
Below is a places I think in Ballan, we had coffee and the best Vanilla slice, great place but it was a little smokey due to the indoor wood burner, loved the place
Patchwork shop " Gail's Emporium", look at the lovely Birdhouse, the Garden, the driveway to the shop and the Stone building that is home to the shop.
Deidre and I went to Melbourne early Wednesday morning, arrived on time , got our car and plugged in the Tom tom and drove to the first shop called Somerset, we both belong to their fabric club and really wanted to see the shop.
We also visited Amity, Patchwork on Central and one more, oh dear forgot the name.
A few things had to come home with me and I will show you in the next few days.
We got to our hotel in the afternoon and had dinner downstairs, yummy Goat cheese tart and some Wine was enjoyed too.
Thursday we walked over to the Quilt show, only a short walk. We had a great time looking at lovely quilts and some more shopping.
I have taken pictures of the most beautiful quilts ( to me ) and will show you some here soon.
The quilts where hang in a zigzag fashion and it didn't make it easy for viewing them.
We decided not to go back to the show and went to Castlemaine instead, wow I loved the shop Threadbear and had to make some more purchases ( pictures to come)
Drove home via Ballarat and Ballan and visited Gaile's Emporium a patchwork shop, loved the building and the setting, just beautiful.
Saturday we got up late and went to the Queen Victoria market and flew home in the afternoon.
Thanks Deidre I had a great time.
We went to many shops and I didn't write all the names down, but many are well worth a visit.
bye for now
