The Upholsterers Gallery

I'm so lucky to have a friend at school that "inspires" me!  Today Ric Rac and I went out for a coffee at lunch time, to our favourite little place in Ballarat.
We order our coffee and then check out all the gorgeous things in the shop, drink our coffee talking ten to the dozen, and then continue checking everything out.  It is the most beautiful shop in Ballarat.


I was lucky to have my red quilt displayed in her Christmas window display.  The owner is a parent from our school, so we know her quite well.

oh, and seeing as I didn't make a report writing quilt this time around, I have been making up for it with a bit of night sewing.

Count down is on for holidays.  3 days to go.

How lucky you are to have such a lovely shop nearby your school. It looks like the type of place you could really grow accostomed to. Your quilt looks so nice in the window and your night time sewing looks lovely too. Enjoy the count down to the end of the school year!

I love your Christmas quilt. It has a modern, light and breezy look to it, which is what we need in our hot climate. A lovely change from the heavy dark greens and reds. I'm inspired to make a version for myself.
