My family now knows that any trip may well involve planned or spontaneous stops at Quilt Shops.
Our little Beach Holiday to Warrnambool was no different.
First stop was on the way the to Warrnambool
Gail's Emporium in Ballarat
(sorry - phone photo)
A quick stop for some Cottage Garden Threads because, well, what I had at home just wasn't right for the project I took away with me :o)
Shez, I need to plan a day out in Ballarat with you so I can take in all that this shop has to offer.
Then on a little day trip Claire and I managed to find this little gem in Port Fairy.
Neither hubby was surprised!
They took the kids to the bakery whilst we shopped ..... we have them all trained well don't we :o)
"Rubleberry's" - Port Fairy
A sweet little shop that was only two small rooms in the front of a house.
and my purchases
and being that we were staying in Warrnambool there was a visit (or 2 for me, maybe 3 for Claire) to
and my purchases
I know I am on a fabric diet but this lot is OK as it's not being stashed.
I plan on starting this one asap. A little out of my comfort zone as I'm not one that normally plays with Civil War / Reproduction Fabrics. I see a lot of fussy cutting in my future.
As for holiday crafting. Well you can see that I packed the supplies ...... Wine included
and this is the extend of what I got done.
Guess that means we had a busy week :o)
And a "Holiday Pic" to finish this post.
She cried when we left. Didn't want to leave the beach. Since we have been home we have taken her
school supply shopping. Now she cries if we try to get her to take her new School Shoes off!
She thinks she is so clever as she has learnt to do them up herself. Where did my baby go? Oh well, some things aren't worth arguing over. Even if it is nearly 2pm Sunday and she is running around in school shoes and PJ's
Thanks for stopping by.
