Falling in love with Melba

On Saturday afternoon John drove me over to the Cranbourne Botanic Gardens and we had a brilliant time.  

I was a bit shaky on my feet but that didn't stop me (and John too) having a bit of a paddle in one of the water features.
Not us.  Paddling is allowed.
We were there for the Australian Textile Exhibition and it was fabulous.
We often visit these gardens and I love this little huddle of trees.  They looked extra beautiful in their fabric shawls.

It was love at first sight when I saw Leesa Chandler's new fabric range - Melba. I just have to make a quilt using the grey colourway.  Not sure what it will be yet but I feel like I cannot live without it in my life.

There were so many amazing quilts on show I will blog about the exhibition again tomorrow.
I love this Strawberry Zipper Pouch which is featured in a fabulous tutorial HERE.
Many, many thanks to amazing Amanda at Jedi Craft Girl for very generously sharing it with us.

Have a fabulous day
