The morning dawned quite cool and was supposed to be wet and windy. We set off on the train to travel into Melbourne, where I was to meet up with Joy again and four quilters/bloggers who had planned to see a Quilt Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. The day certainly turned warmer than expected & not windy till about 3pm.
It was a wonderful day, meeting 4 new, lovely ladies & an exhibition which had amazing old quilts along with a brief description of their story.
I only took my small camera with me, so these aren't the best snaps & also we couldn't use our flash. A very small selection.
This next pic is really not good & hubby did take one of the six of us later, but it is even worse, so this is it.
|Lovely ladies, plus Joy.

|Notice the dates. Some of the quilts were very old, with exquisite workmanship.
|A King Parrot sitting on the railing, waiting to support the net for the blueberry bushes. He has visited a few times lately.
|One of my roses, Fiona's Wish, which is huge. This bloom measured 7" across and if only we had smellavision too, as it is a highly scented one.
Have a great week all.
