So I have another new section...and yes it is another page (located just under the header) called
For Visitors to Melbourne
Here you will find some of my favourite places in Melbourne, Australia. Places that I think visitors from the country, interstate or overseas might enjoy visiting. I went to two of them yesterday.
I visited with my dear friends Christine
And of course, greedy me
Jam and Cream is a teahouse which specialises in, freshly cooked to order, scones and other old fashioned treats. Not only is there delicious food there are also heaps of delightful goodies on display all with a domestic theme. The whole place has a vintage vibe which I adore.
Got to love those vintage undies in the window.
It was wonderful to get together with these very dear friends, both of whom I met through blogging. After our gobbling food and chatting we went off in different directions and I popped down the road to another favourite place
282 Wingrove Street Fairfield. Victoria
I cannot find the words to describe how beautiful Kellie's shop Cutting Cloth is to visit.
It is jam packed with the most beautiful fabric, haby items, threads and gifts. And lucky, lucky me I'll be doing classes with super talented Wendy Williams, who will be coming down from Sydney to teach at this gorgeous spot throughout the year. Here's the quilt I want to stitch.
I fell in love with it the moment I saw it, never dreaming Wendy would be coming regularly to Melbourne to teach. Enormous thanks to Kellie for bringing teachers in from interstate, I know fabulous Margaret Sampson George is to be a regular at the shop too...and I am so much in love with her designs as well...but this is supposed to be the year I finish off existing projects and don't start new ones...oh well maybe the year after.
And of course I'm still doing classes with wonderful Di Ford Hall, I adore her and will be doing classes with her forever...she is such a brilliant teacher and a wonderful person.
I am so glad I discovered The Snowflower Diaries. Maja's blog is a truly beautiful place to visit...and how charming is her February pattern for her Stitch-a-long.
Here is the LINK. Even if you don't do cross stitch you really should visit Maja, just for the opportunity to enjoy her beautiful photography. It is a true delight.
Hope you have the happiest day
