Winner is... and few days in Melbourne.

We have been away and back again-- and I realised that I had not picked a winner for the Red Embroidered Cushion Pattern. Thank you for the lovely comments, and the winner is ..... Ondrea.
I  will send the pattern to you shortly, Ondrea.


We went to Melbourne for 4 nights-- the aim was to attend a wedding on the 18th July. Unfortunately, I did  not find a single patchwork shop , but we did have a fabulous time in this beautiful city. We stayed in St Kilda and travelled on the trams to the CBD etc. Victoria Markets was fabulous and the laneways in Melbourne are a great feature of the city. We did a walking tour that started out from the front of the library at 10.30 am-- and it was well worth it.
Here are some photos of Melbourne.

The beautiful cake shops-- I am sure I gained 2 kgs by just standing and looking at the cakes!

This was the lovely arch used for the wedding ceremony-- made with lots of gum leaves and flowers
 
I made this hexagon ring for my suitcase--to help identify my bag
 

Cheers,
Yvonne

It looks like you had a wonderful time in Melbourne. I would have made a beeline for the house used as Miss Fisher's in the TV programme. I like her feisty character too. Slowly catching up in Blogland as real life has had me kidnapped for the last few weeks.
