Trip to Threadbear in Castlemaine
My friend Colleen and I had a very early start yesterday to drive to Castlemaine in central Victoria. This is a trip of over 800 kilometres which took us more than nine hours driving.
The countryside was beautiful and green. We loved the fields of wild gazanias growing near the roads in Victoria.
Spring is everywhere.
We were in a bit of a rush to get to Castlemaine in time to shop at the magnificent Threadbear Patchwork Store. Made it just in time....
Today I had a very busy day teaching a lovely group of ladies my applique techniques for "Lambton".
Here I am helping Jenny with her fabrics.
I had taught some of the group before and it was great to see some show and tell.
Tina brought in her beautiful bouquet of three dimensional applique which she began on the Needlework Cruise in April. Lovely work.
Bernie brought her funky bright centre for "Wentworth" with her.
This gorgeous centre is by Jenny. Wow, love it.
Another day of teaching tomorrow.
