We then visited Schramm's Cottage which is just across the road. It is the home of the Doncaster Templestowe Historical Society and is comprised of a complex of houses, schoolrooms and orchard equipment and outbuildings. There are lots of beautiful textiles on display, in both Schramm's Cottage and Atkins Orchard Cottage.
A very poignant reminder of the past is the cemetery which is the burial place of many many infants and babies...a tragic reminder of the high mortality rates of children a hundred or so years ago. It is also noteworthy that many of the graves were vandalised during the second world war, as it is a German Lutheran graveyard.

Enormous thanks to fabulous Kelsey of Vanilla Joy for showing us her method of binding quilts by machine. She based her tutorial on one featured on the brilliant blog, Cluck, Cluck, Sew.
Hope you have a super fun day. I'm off to The Quilt Shop to stitch with friends so I know I'll have fun too.
