I had an awesome day on Sunday! I took the train in to Melbourne and went to see the Making the Australian Quilt exhibition!
Would you believe Chookyblue managed to find a flimsy, ie a UFO:
We both felt a bit better knowing that even people in the 19th Century had UFOs 🙂
There were also orphan blocks on display:
(Sorry that the photos are a bit big, I’m not home on my normal computer… will resize them when I get home again)
There were lots of amazing quilts, with a write-up beside them of their history. I think one thing that struck most of us was the beautiful embroidery on some of the quilts that looked almost like it was done by machine:
I think the exhibition ends soon, so I am glad I got to see it. But, the highlight of the day was meeting Chookyblue and the other ladies!
Today I headed down to the big smoke again via the airport to pick up my sister and brother-in-law who flew down from Cairns – it’s our oldest nephew’s wedding tomorrow, so we are here for a few days. My sister had the most brilliant idea…. to go to Ikea in the morning 🙂 I haven’t been to Ikea since Arabia, so I’m looking forward to that as well.
Off to bed… big day tomorrow… yes I brought a UFO to work on 🙂 (No, don’t worry I won’t work on it at the wedding!!! DD said that would be just too embarrassing, lol!)
