BIG Weekend...

What's the difference between 600 and 800 Km's? This weekends destination Hamilton Vic approx 300Km from my house. Why? To celebrate a Big Birthday with my brother. Some Poppies flowering in my sister in laws garden, I really did go there and participate in the family celebrations. Back to the question... A view of the Southern Ocean - Pt Fairy Vic
A lovely patchwork shop... Warrnambool Vic
Shopping at said Patchwork Shop - Frangrant Cottage and it surely is, they have lovely smelling goodies as well as gorgeous Fabrics - My Loot - fabric and thread for a secret project, and some for me too!
Oh and visit to Bliss Scrapbooking, Warrnambool Vic - netted this lot - beautiful purple ricrac and ribbon - and Rings to complete the secret project.
In between all that driving, I put the finishing stitches on my Christmas Wish Quilt - one day it will be still enough to get a decent photo. I did the quilting and sewed the binding on Thursday, the weekend task was to stitch the binding down. Accomplished!
Back home and ready for some more stitching tonight.
Hope your weekend was productive one.
Happy Crafting

Your Christmas wish quilt just looks so beautiful.
Perfect to combine craft and a family function in one trip.

Love the loot - good score. That thread is gorgeous. The finished quilt is fantastic, the blue binding finishes it off just so - well done.
