Stitching and family

 I have been doing a little stitching.I seem to be a little unmotivated but am enjoying working on some smaller projects. I have been doing a bit of cross stitch.

I also used some leftover fabric to make a bag for the Wool winding swift. Works much better than the box.
Lovely to see Roni's gorgeous show and tell yesterday. She has been very busy!

Alice and family had a wonderful holiday at Dolphin Point last week. They go with other families (like we did many years ago!) and have such a lovely time. They also tried out their new caravan.

Alice and I went to Old Parliament House (MOAD Museum of Australian Democracy) on Monday. We had a lovely time learning lots about government. We also had yummy morning tea.

Here are our boys in winter uniform.....even though it was going to be 32 degrees.

Quilts and Cutting Cloth

 There were some amazing quilts at AQC. Here are just a few.

On Saturday we had an adventure and caught the bus and train to Cutting Cloth. It was so worth the visit.

We also enjoyed choosing some cakes at Brunettis. Such a lovely selection. There was a Brunettis just up the road in Lygon St and one in Myer in the city. We also had several dinners at Papa Gino's near to our apartment. It was great value and very delicious.

Here are my purchases!!! So many lovely things to tempt us.

Melbourne and the AQC

 Last week a few of us headed to Melbourne to the AQC. We had a lovely time. On Thursday, even after my delayed flight (thanks Qantas), we went to the Titanic Exhibition. It was great.

On Friday we went to the AQC. It was a lovely exhibition in a beautiful building. There were also lovely shops!
