I had a wonderful day on Saturday when i meet up with my buddy Lyn for the airing of the quilts in Steiglitz.
It was a beautiful spring day with a gentle breeze,perfect for walking up and down the hills,lol.
Lots of lovely quilts on display apparently there was a lot less than the years before,as this year you had to bring your quilts and display them yourself and to look after them where as other years 1 lady took on the responsibility and it got to much for her,such a big job.
This pic is outside the old PO.
There is so much history in this old gold mining town,its a shame alot of the old buildings have gone.
We took a walk down the hill to this very old cottage to have some morning tea.
Along our walk to the cottage we found this,it was in memory of the gold mining pioneers and was built in 1951 a 100 yrs when this town was born.
Wow this cottage was awesome and left just the way it was back in its hey day,you werent allowed to touch the walls,boy if only the walls could talk i would love to know about the families that lived here once upon a time.
Lynnie and i sat on the back veranda looking at the beautiful landscape and it was just so peaceful with birds chirping and we both felt like we were on the little house on the Prairie as we sipped away on our homemade lemonade and freshly baked scones with jam and cream.
Hope you had a lovely weekend.
