So many goodies

Shez took Tracee and I on an amazing quilty Ballarat adventure.  First we met at Spotlight and we had a brilliant time.  Both Shez and I were once Spotty employees so we felt like we were at home.  They had some gorgeous fabrics on show and we were all tempted and we all succumbed to this temptation.  Then off to the most delicious lunch at a fabulous homewears store/cafe.  Delicious food and wonderful company - what more could you want? It's called Such and Such and is at 809 Sturt Street.

We just loved the lace covered reindeer

Next a wonderful whirl around Ballarat's quilt and decorator shops.  My favourite was Ballarat Patchwork.  It was wonderful to visit Gail too, at Gail's Patchwork Emporium.  She is almost back in her wonderful rebuilt store and it was brilliant to have a good chat.  She even took us on a tour of the new shop, so Tracee could get an idea of what it will be like.
Here's some of the goodies I purchased.

As I was heading off home, Tracee gave me this adorable gift, complete with gifts for the girlywhirlies. Shez received one too.  Thank you so much, Tracee.

What a wonderful day.  What wonderful friends.  Huge thanks to Shez for her amazing chauffeured tour of the quilty highlights of Ballarat. I had the BEST day.

This design is indeed fabulous and yes, the pattern is free.  Here's the LINK to beautiful Cherry Blossoms Quilting.  Huge thanks to Cherry.
