No stitching or quilts or quilt related pics to show you here this week I am sorry! Instead I will show you a little of what my sister Rochelle and I got up to when she flew down from Brisbane on Friday to stay with me for the weekend. For those who don't live in Australia, Brisbane is about two long days drive away from Melbourne so we don't get to catch up very often.
I met her in Melbourne where we drank lots of coffee (& these to die for hot chocolates above), shopped lots, talked heaps, walked many kilometres, ate beautiful food and eventually fell in a heap in our hotel that night! Look what she bought me from Brisbane...a beautiful handmade glass bead in the cutest little box, how special.
Melbourne city at night is just gorgeous!
Today we went to church in the morning, then spent time up at Red Hill (a beautiful place on the Mornington Peninsula full of arts and crafts, wineries and cafes). We visited an amazing glass blowing gallery (Gordon Studio Glassblowers), where they had the most amazing glass sculptures in the gardens outside.
As quilters I think it becomes easy to see the talent, hard work and design that goes into the making of other mediums like glassware.
My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed wandering through the colours that bounced off these incredible creations.
Rochelle does only a little quilting, but she is a graphic artist and makes the most amazing lead lighting and mosaic works herself, so she loved it!
Thanks Sis for a fabulous time of catch up, reminiscing and discovering some amazing places.
I miss you already! xo
