Melbourne

Paddy and I had a wonderful time in Melbourne last week. We flew down on Wednesday and back on Saturday and went primarily to go to the AQC. We also enjoyed some shopping and some delicious meals. Even the weather was perfect. On Wednesday we headed to Chin Chin for lunch. Yum! We also managed to get to Florentinos for a delicious dinner too! Our first stop after lunch was L'uccello and the lovely Japanese shop and button shop nearby.



 We spent Thursday at the AQC held in this gorgeous building.

 Lovely to see so many familiar faces. There were gorgeous goodies on Kellie Wulfsohn's stall and lovely to catch up with Lynette Anderson and Anni Downs too. They all had lovely things to tempt us as did many of the other stalls.


We did go to one talk by Jane from Bebe Bold and then headed to the quilts later in the day. Lots of photos of some amazing work from all over the world.




























 Friday was spent enjoying morning tea here and some shopping. In the evening we caught up with some lovely friends of Paddy's for dinner. It was a delightful time away! Hard to get back to normal today!
