The weekend just passed, was my annual slice of quilters paradise.
The quilting group I belong to, books The Miners Church which is a B&B in Scotchmans Lead, just outside of Ballarat, one weekend a year each January.
It is a quaint little hideaway, where all our needs are met - beautiful grounds, an old school house that we convert into a sewing room, comfortable beds, a kitchen, books to read and the peace and tranquilty that all mums need at this stage of the holidays!!!
There is even a tram appartment at the back of the garden that is privately rented.
On one of the nights, Doug and Julie (the friendly hosts) cook our pizza's in their wonderful Wood Fire Pizza Oven in the garden. They are DELICIOUS!
There was lots of sewing done, and in fact it was a hive of industry in the old school house.
This is the school house from the outside, so you can see we had plenty of room.
Inside the school house . . .
This is the old church which has been lovingly created into a home where the hosts used to live. They have since built a new home behind which is equally as beautiful.
I would highly recommend this to any quilting group, or indeed families. A fantastic place to rest and relax, and indeed get some sewing done!
Thanks Julie and Doug for another lovely weekend away.
