Throo the Gate


On Sunday Lyn and i went off to have a look around the township of Smythesdale,lots of quirky shops about.


Lyn and i enjoyed some scones with jam and cream at the cafe Throo the Gate.


Then we had a look around at Ruth's antique shop and i bought this beautiful doiley which i hope to make into a needlecase.


I also managed to find a lovely hinged tin that i will make into a sewing box,this one is a great size,Lyn also managed to pick one up,the hinged tins are so hard to find now.


These are the fabrics that i purchased for $15 a mt and i cant remember how much the green homespun was,i bought these in Maldon at The Village Patch.

Hope your day is a good one.

A Trip to Gail's Patchwork Emporium


Lynnie and i got back home in time on Friday from Maldon for a Visit to Gail's patchwork Emporium.
Gail had some beautiful easter decorations,i was very tempted.


Gail's shop is amazing and so much fun to look around.


Lynnie was a bit partial to these old hats,they are beautiful each one covered in flowers.


I go back to the hospital today to get my stitches out and hopefully thats the last thing they have to do and i can concentrate on building up strength back in my ankle.

Hope your day is a good one.

I got the heart tag finished last night for FNSI ,hosted by our lovely Wendy to see what the other ladies got up to go here.


Hooray Lynnie arrived nice and early Friday morning


Lynnie also bought this lovely gift along for me which is a beautiful tree with vintage easter tags hanging off the wire branches,its gorgeous .


We decided to take a road trip and  spend the day at Maldon,when we got there we decided to have lunch first,we were so busy chatting i forgot to take a pic of our lunch ,lol.


We were sad as the xmas shop was closed so we got to spend more time in The Village Patch.


I loved this doll display.


Lyn had a ball picking fabrics as fabrics are $15 or $17 a mt.


Loved this quilt for a little boy.


I was fascinated with this quilt.


Wow some work in this one.


Lynnie matching up fabric for her little premmie baby quilts which she makes for the Geelong Hospital

Candle mat & Craft


I have wanted to make this candle mat pattern up for awhile now.


And i finally got around to making it.


We had a fun day at craft,Brenda always has us in stitches.


This is a lovely piece that Brenda has been working on.


This piece is painted and machined stitch ,its an online course she is doing but i cant remember the designer and in the end it will be a beautiful painted and sewn quilt of birds.


Barb has been working on socks.


Sharon has been working on her EPP quilt.


Raelene was stitching down binding on her beautiful quilt.
It was such a fun day full of laughs.

Hope your day is a good one.
