Earlier this past week I received Michelle's new pattern which has the cutest Aussie animals in a Christmas theme. I am itchin' for stitchin' this one.

On Thursday I went on a bus trip with one of my patchwork groups to see the " Making the Australian Quilt" exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria at Federation Square. Oh my! Was I in heaven! So many beautiful antique quilts made by hand, probably by candlelight.  Some of the English Paper Pieced ones still had papers in them and I guess that is how they managed to date some of them. So many beautiful Crazy Quilts, Log Cabins, Tumbling Blocks, hexies appliques and embroidery. There were also some Waggas. I did take pics on my new phone but I can't load them onto the computer. When I bought the phone they promised me I would be able to but upon trying I realised I need to download a new program which is only available on particular computers. You guessd it, NOT MINE! So, NOT HAPPY! Thus no pics. After lunch at a Lygon St Italian Restaurant we then went to The Cutting Cloth in Fairfield which I love. I  bought some fat 1/4s and some hanky linen which I have  been unable to find locally.

Then we went to GJ's Fabrics where I bought some cat fabric, owl fabric ( no surprise there) and some contrast fabric for borders on whatever I make with these fabrics.
The baby blanket is growing.
I even finished another book.( But didn't really enjoy it).
Angel Blessings.
