This week I was in Melbourne for 36 hours. For non Aussies, Melbourne is pronounced "Mel bun". Weird, eh? but if you say it like that, it will demonstrate your worldliness, particularly to Australians. Here are my photos
I love blogland.
I love how you see so many wonderful quilts and get terrific technical tips.
I love how we virtually meet up with quilters from around the world to exchange ideas and points of view.
But I love it best when I actually get to meet someone from blogland.
24 hours into my "Mel bun" trip I met Linda from the well known Quilts in the Barn. If you haven't visited, I suggest you rush right over to see her blog (but come back to me afterwards, won't you?).
Sadly, the camera was out of action, so you will just have to take my word that she is a classy lady with plenty of style. Linda, it was a pleasure to meet you.
We went on a personalized shop hop. When I say personalized, well a shop with patchwork fabric was the only requirement. And somehow, without me quite realizing it, I came home with this
Two handmade coasters, meticulously made. Thank you again, Linda for a lovely day spent together. I look forward to returning the favour when you come to visit in Sydney.
