On Wednesday Jo took me to her patchwork group in Heathcoate and on the way there, there were lots of amazing rock formations.
They were a lovely group of ladies who made me feel very welcome,top left Jo showing her FQ apron for show and tell and top right is Jo's friend Christine who showed me her beautiful stitcheries.
Then Jo's lovely friend Christine invited us to her brand new home so that i could see all the beautiful things that she had made.
The top 2 cushions were on lovely armchairs in her new sewing room,they were just beautiful.
And these are another 2 cushions that are sitting on Christine's lounge,wow the work and fancy buttons that have gone into these large cushions was amazing.
And how cute is this piccanny quilt ,boy it was just stunning and i love the table runner that was on Christine's dining table
And this gorgeous quilt is on Christine's bed and the colours were beautiful as was the design,bottom 2 pics Christine showed us her stash of mag and fabrics.
Thankyou so much Christine for showing us around your beautiful home ,i just loved the way you have decorated it with your beautiful hand made projects,well done.

After stitching for the morning at Kilmore,we picked Jo's hubby up and they showed me hanging rock,lol i thought
hanging rock was near Stawell,
Then we went to a lovely cafe at Mount Macedon called Top of the Range and was were Jo and Tony held there son's funeral,it was such a lovely peaceful spot and the food was fantastic.
Jo's hubby Tony has a sense of humour too and like Jo you dont know what he is going to do next,lol.
Then we went to Straws lane ,Tony spilt water on the road and it ran up hill,then we hopped into the car and put it in neutral and hand brake off and feet off the pedals and the car rolled backwards up the hill,lol it was amazing,here is a utube link for you to see for yourself.
Mt Macedon is or was the home of one of the seekers Athol Guy and they had a huge painting of the seekers in the cafe on the wall and lots of their awards on another wall, it was amazing to see.
And the cafe had a resident peacock ,oh his colours were so bright and pretty,there was so much to see at this lovely cafe,its well worth taking a visit there.

Hope your day is a good one.
