Returned from Hobart last night but too tired to post! It actually rained on the way home - first rainy day this year. I took some photos of old cottages and houses in some of the towns in the Midlands - always loved old homes. Ours was built in 1907 and needs to be painted soon so I am looking out for colour schemes I like. The last house we lived in I painted myself - took 4 summers - but might get some help this time.
On the way to Hobart I sewed down the binding on the Tis the Season table runner so it is finally finished. I used some red Judie Rothermel fabric in an attempt to echo the border.
While in Hobart I visited a new quilt shop in Sandy Bay called Frangipani Fabrics. If I remember rightly this business was previously in Darwin and relocated to Tassie quite recently. The shop is housed in an old federation style house so I loved it instantly.
They have a big selection of Australian and Japanese fabrics which is not really my thing, but I did find this cute little bag pattern by Renee Plains
and these fat quarters for $2.50 each in the sale bin.
There were also some nice flannels and if you are into beads they have a large selection. When I got home Oliver was very interested to check out the shopping bags! Molly enjoyed her little holiday with Nanny and Poppy and was awarded 10/10 for being such a good girl.
