Melbourne Craft Fair and sewing days .....

Last week Sylvia and I enjoyed a couple of days in Melbourne in stitching heaven!!   We had a great time at the Melbourne Craft Fair and caught up with a few blogging friends which was great to put faces to names finally !!

We also caught up with Rose who we met on the cruise earlier this year and she has been a major part of this gorgeous quilt to raise funds for the Caroline Chisholm Foundation.   It is absolutely amazing!

A bit of a close up of the beautiful work and quilting on this amazing masterpiece !

And we explored the beautiful l'uccello in Swanston Street which has such an incredible array of beautiful sewing pieces!   Just a couple of small purchases there !!

Inside this gorgeous treasure trove !

And some of the amazing tea cosies at the Craft Fair !   The next day we spent at "Friends in Stitches" ... photos to come !!
