Melbourne trip

Up up and away..... off to Melbourne to the Craft and Quilt show .... also shopping, eating and laughing, we had a great time..... Norreen, Jenny, Lynda and me.

Retail therapy was on the list too.

Our apartment.

                              Norreen and I shared this room, very comfortable.

Off to L'uccello's, we have heard so much about this shop and we were not disappointed at all.... could have spent lots of time and money there but we had choccie shops to explore.

There were "speckles" in this little tin but not now.

                                                                      The Yarra

               First night we were too tired to go out so order in was the way to go.

Day 2 saw us hiring a car and going to ....... craft shops of course, first stop was the "Patchwork Tea House".... it was my favourite shop of the trip followed closely by "Gail's Emporium" which we visited on day 3's shop hopping.

Jenny was our driver.

Yes Scones and tea at the "Patchwork Tea House" and they were wonderful.

 Here is my shopping..... oops the cotton reel was bought from "L'uccello's" the day before.

                                                   More to follow another day.

Another block from the Homespun mag BOM "Its  Time for Christmas" wall hanging.

What a fun trip, Helen. L'Ucello is such a gorgeous shop; wish I'd known you were coming to Ballarat - I would have loved to meet you. Another time.

We did have a great trip. Mighty awful photo of me on the plane but hey what the heck. Helen forgot to mention that the scones, jam and cream was our breakfast/brunch.
