Melbourne 2

We had such a great road trip on last Thursday when we travelled east of Melbourne, we decided to go on another road trip on Saturday heading north west of Melbourne to Ballarat.  Not so many photos this time.

First stop was beautiful Ballarat Patchwk - I loved this shop - so much more my style of fabric, patterns etc.  I bought some wideback for my Oh Cherry Churn Dash quilt and some beautiful baboushka linens.


Next stop was Gail's Patchwork Emporium in Sebastopol - what a shop!  The range of beautiful trims and gorgeous floral fabrics is unbelievable - Helen was in heaven.

We headed on to Mill Rose Cottage in Ballan and had lunch at the restaurant next door.

Ploughman's Lunch at Mill Rose Cottage

Mill Rose has a huge range of beautiful fabrics.  Last stop was Patch and Quilt in Gisborne - another lovely shop.

Sunday morning flew by but, of course, we managed to fit in morning tea at Laurent Boulangerie.



I definitely need to plan another trip to Melbourne even if just to explore all the laneways and arcades in the city.  Thanks Helen, Jenny and Noreen for a wonderful few days away.

Hi Lynda,
You know I take it for granted, living in Melbourne, but when I read blogs like this about people who love coming here, it makes me realise how lucky I am!
Just wondering if you were still going to make a baby quilt for my PNG baby quilt drive? You emailed me some time ago, but I haven't heard from you since, and am wondering if I've missed something.
I'm making a list of quilt donors to be given to the PNG native families who will be receiving quilts.

Cheers, Jan (ex-FIS group)
