Dual-Purpose Trip

A trip to the Geelong area, firstly to visit the Geelong Patchwork & Quilters Guild Exhibition. This large quilt-covered globe stood at the entrance:
The exhibition was enjoyable, and it was good to see quilts made by a few friends.

Then it was on to Ocean Grove, to check on the bees:
This is the hive formed from the second swarm from my bees. They've been in Ocean Grove for about a month now, and they seem to be settling in quite well. They've just about filled the hive so we added a super to give them room to expand their honey stores.


  1. the quilt globe is fabulous and i can see how large it is too, what an excellent idea. good to see your 2nd family of bees are happy.

  2. That globe is great. Pleased your bees are buzzing and happy. All that seaside air must be good for them.

  3. Great visual for global quilting and a show stopper.
    The bees must be doing well if your adding new supers. Yummy
