Trip to Town

Today was my regular trip into Melbourne to meet up with some quilting friends. My wait for the train was accompanied by the screeching of a huge flock of corellas in the tops of the tall pine trees beside the station:
I thought they were probably eating pine seeds, but all these ones seem to be grooming themselves. So maybe it was just a nice place to stop and have a noisy gathering.

In the city, one of our number sewed an embroidered label to the quilt we all contributed to, and then it was finished and ready to present:
(I should have photographed the label.) If you enlarge the photo you might be able to see the cute elephant design it is quilted with. The recipient was surprised and touched, I think. Her baby is due in a couple of months, so we all hope the little one will enjoy our quilt for years to come.


  1. Love the bright colors in this quilt--perfect for a baby--lovely pattern hugs, Julierose
