Here I am standing with Petra and Mary amongst the fabulous Antique quilts that Mary sells. I had my eye on a couple but my suitcase was so full that I will have to wait to add to my antique quilt collection another day. The other thing that caught my eye was the wonderful array of feed sacks Mary had for sale, the history of feed sacks is interesting and I can see why people love collecting them. I even found one that would make a very cute apron.
This is an amazing quilt, to capture the facial details so well and I loved the expression on the dogs faces, particularly the Hugo look alike dog...the 'promise I will be good look'.
This quilt was an amazing piece of mathematical genius, the points all matched and the curves all curved, the quilting was so beautiful and I loved the colours.
This little quilted garden was apple themed and the tree was full of apples, hundreds of apples each one pieced, stuffed and then wired along with alot of leaves onto the branches of a real tree.....
The next quilted garden was equally amazing, this window was filled with fabric flowers.
The flower planters were filed with fabric flowers....
Today we tried sushi at a little cafe type place near the railway station. It was packed with commuters all getting a quick snack at lunchtime. I was brave and tried lots of different things including eel and octopus.... very tasty.
