We went to Church in Hobart, Tasmania

It is around September 11th or maybe the 12th.

Look what was inside!
I think I’ll sit a spell on this church pew full of ‘Elizabethtown’ – it had just arrived!
Two darling shop owners made us very welcome, Deidre is standing next to Linda, Leonie is sitting next to me.
These are the ladies that had the ‘store’ at “Quilt in the Barn”.

They have also been coming to Quilt Market here in the States, so be on the looking for their wonderful pattern line by ‘Quilted Crow Girl Designs’.

We walked across the street for lunch, love this sign!

I think we all deserve weeks like this!

Wonderful lunch at Giant Steps and more

September 5 or 6th
Hum, I have a little dilemma, my camera was on US time and zone while we were down under, so not sure what day this way, either Monday or Tuesday after Quilts in the Barn.
Lunch with some of Linda’s quilting friends, it was a little drive away, but so fun.
The girls all brought Show and Tell.
Russ was there, just not in the picture.

All too soon the weekend is over

September 4th — the Raffle Quilt was won by Viv, many friends congratulated her.
It would have also looked very lovely here in Nebraska, but alas, it resides down under.

What more could you ask for?

Australia! Dandenong Ranges National Park

As promised, the first of a post about what has been happening the past three months.
Linda took us here to the National Park, it is maybe an hour or so from Melbourne, this was taken August 29th.
The birds are wild, but can legally be fed, so they kind of hang around waiting for food.
Pretty cool to be able to get so close, so very beautiful!

One tried to land on my shoulder, but flew at me from behind and when I heard the noise I ducked and missed the experience of having one on my shoulder.
