Escape to the Dandenongs

Well today I was child-free so a lovely couple of friends and I headed to the Dandenongs. Beautiful weather and lovely company. We were well received at Mrs Martins Quilt shop in Monbulk, with a lovely cup of coffee while we perused the establishment. You ladies out there are so talented, there were so many patterns I just "have to do".

I had a lovely time choosing another Melly and Me pattern - a butterfly for Grace - this will be made during the NOTYQ Retreat in August.

and, I just couldn't resist some Cottage Garden Country Threads - hand dyed threads....I've been looking at this range for ages, they are so beautiful
Then we headed to Tecoma for a lovely bakery lunch and peruse amongst the shops - and yes another quilt shop - Foothills Fabric & Threads, another beautiful shop full of lovely ideas - as well as seeing Leanne Beasleys latest quilt design - Down in the Garden, her stitches are just divine.

There is just not enough hours in my day for all the lovelies I want to make - thanks Libby and Maddie for a lovely day.

Happy Sewing, Jennifer
