A Trip To Maldon


I got the heart tag finished last night for FNSI ,hosted by our lovely Wendy to see what the other ladies got up to go here.


Hooray Lynnie arrived nice and early Friday morning


Lynnie also bought this lovely gift along for me which is a beautiful tree with vintage easter tags hanging off the wire branches,its gorgeous .


We decided to take a road trip and  spend the day at Maldon,when we got there we decided to have lunch first,we were so busy chatting i forgot to take a pic of our lunch ,lol.


We were sad as the xmas shop was closed so we got to spend more time in The Village Patch.


I loved this doll display.


Lyn had a ball picking fabrics as fabrics are $15 or $17 a mt.


Loved this quilt for a little boy.


I was fascinated with this quilt.


Wow some work in this one.


Lynnie matching up fabric for her little premmie baby quilts which she makes for the Geelong Hospital

Today we are off to Gisborne for some more fun and to catch up with some more friends.

Hope your day is a good one.
Cheers Shez xx

  3. There is nothing like a quilty day out with a good friend :D
    LOVE those dolls too, as well as that Mariner's compass quilt, WOW !
    And the fabric prices you mention are a-ma-zing - here in Belgium, quilt fabrics have now reached around 20 Euros/meter (approx. 32 AUD)... which doesn't always meet your budget, especially when you're retired. Yet, in some way, this brings us making do with what we have in our stash, and thus being more creative :D

    In stitches,
    XOXO Nadine

  30. Loved the pretty red-work stitched tags. Looks like some very tiny expert stitches too. Enjoyed the wonderful pics of your fun road trip. Not much more fun than to browse a big fabric/quilt shop (that used to be my craft prior to rubber stamping)...so I got quite thrill from seeing the colorful fabrics. Awesome quilts too. I'm so glad your surgery has healed so that you can get about and enjoy a lovely time with your friend. TFS & Hugs
