Two Lovely Days

On Tuesday I was blessed with a visit from one of my very favourite designers The gorgeous Michelle Ridgway
I was so thrilled to be able to show her a couple of her designs that I have stitched
She seemed pleased with what I had done with her design

She and Hubby are travelling in my area  and as they were going past my door they stopped for a quick morning tea
Thankyou both for taking the time
You made my week
 Enjoy the rest of your trip guys
Then yesterday I was lucky enough to visit the Making the Australian Quilt expo in Melbourne
I only got one photo as I couldn't get my flash to turn off
This quilt was made up of thousands of tiny hexagons
Beautiful
So much Aussie quilting history
