I had a visit from my friend Terry of Terry's New Thread last weekend. Terry and I met in NSW when I first returned from living in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Since then we moved again to where we are today in Melbourne. We kept in touch all this time. We had a lot to catch up on this weekend. I showed her around my city and we sat and stitched in the evening. I showed Terry how to piece Wool Crazy foundation block. We were both collecting woolen fabrics a few years back. Terry is new to blogging so I sat with her and gave her a few tips on blogging.
We went to Camberwell Sunday Market. It is a bric-a-brac market that has been in operation for over 100 years. You can find things from fresh cut flowers to collectible items, pre-loved clothing, fabrics etc. It's a great place to take visitors and keep them entertained for half a day. There is a great Italian style breakfast restaurant that we normally stop for breakfast before we start our stroll through the market.
Terry was checking a checked shirt to see if it was a 100% wool. We found a few pieces of woolen fabric for our wool crazy quilt.
In the afternoon we set out on the deck for high-tea with homemade scones, raspberries and cream. It was nice to enjoy a cup of tea after a tiring morning.
I received the Sunshine award from my dearest friend Ria. I was so thrilled to receive the award. Ria told me that I bring sunshine to her days! You are such a sweet friend Ria, thanks so much for thinking of me.
I am supposed to pass this award on to 7 people, which is very hard for me to do. All of you bring sunshine to my days so in order to thank you all for being my blog supporters I would like to give this sunshine award to each and everyone of my readers and wish that your days are filled with sunshine.
As part of my blog keeping, I would like to introduce you to a new blog Sideroad Stitcher from Canada. Diane left a comment on my blog and when I went to visit her I found that she was a new blogger. I hope you will pay her a visit and welcome her to this wonderful blogland.
