It's been ten days since my fun day in the city.
The icing on the cake was meeting up with my cyber friend, Bronwyn from Brisbane. We've been planning this day ever since Bronwyn emailed me some weeks ago to say that she was flying down to Melbourne for the Making the Australian Quilt exhibition.
Bronwyn & i both belong to Kathy Tracy's SQT Group... so you can imagine our excitement when we finally met face to face!
After Bronwyn's flight and my train ride, we were both hanging out for coffee, and that's when we exchanged pressies.
Bronwyn gave me a journal with a beautiful cover she had made pieced entirely of selvedge strips... i LOVE it!!! I made Bron a little woolly applique pincushion.
After our coffee break it was time to take Bron to my fave shop L'ucello's for a little retail therapy...
Next stop, the NGV to see...
where we spent a leisurely three hours in the presence of some truly amazing antique quilts. What a privilege it was to be able to get up nice & close to these beauties and see those tiny stitches.. we were in awe!!
As you can imagine, i took lots & LOTS of photos..
here's a tiny glimpse...
The hours simply flew by and before we knew it, it was time to say our farewells.
Bronwyn and i really hit it off.. best of all we share a similar (quirky) sense of humour... so you can imagine the fun we got up to, and all the laughter!
It was a wonderful day and we both agreed to meet up again, either in Melbourne or i just may have to fly up to Brisbane for a visit :))
