Melbourne 1

Time passes so quickly - this time a week ago I was on a plane heading to Melbourne.

It was so lovely to spend some time with Helen, Jenny and Norreen.  Wednesday afternoon we followed the Chocolate Walk around the city but our first stop was l'uccello  - such a beautiful shop.

Helen - l'uccello's new concierge

I bought a large spool (maybe for a pincushion one day) and a birthday present for Jenni.


In the Block Arcade on our Chocolate Tour, we came across Hopetoun Tea Rooms - such beautiful cakes and goodies in the window and such a long queue each time we walked by.


 A bit of shopping from Thursday's road trip:

Patchwork Teahouse
Amitie

Friday we visited the Quilt show and I was able to meet up with some lovely blogging friends.

Fiona, Norreen, Me, Jenny, Helen, Shez, Sharon, Sylvia

Only bought a few things at the show


including this:


So looking forward to it being delivered.

Oh I would love to visit Lucellos. Was it as wonderful as it seems in everyone's posts? Love your new chair, very snazzy.

Hello Lynda,

What a lovely time you had, you have chosen some lovely gifts and patterns. That chair will make you sew much faster I think.

Happy days.
Bev.

I must get back to Lucello - visited a couple of years ago but didn't have much time to spend there (probably a good thing for the credit card) Nice chair! Just the thing to buy at a quilt show....just as well they deliver - would have been fun getting it on the plane!
