We set off for Adelaide after a lovely few days R and R in the great Australian bush.
A stop in Nhill for lunch produced a lovely surprise- their local patchwork shop was open on a Sunday.  A little shopping to help the local economy was in order.  Jennifer, of Jennifer Meek Giftware  has a lot of lovely fabric in a shop that still boasts 15 ft pressed tin ceilings.  Gorgeous, in a word.

Lovely potential quilting patterns!  No tiled floors though!
 Whilst in Adelaide, The Sewing Sanctuary  in Aldinga Beach was visited and purchases made.  A lovely shop with a little coffee shop attached for after shopping refreshment.  I made some unexpected purchases here.  I've been looking for a fabric for a quilt- but no idea what range or who made it.  Luckily, there it was tucked away on a shelf, languishing.  Well, no more.  One metre came home with me, I was very excited.
A quick trip to Brighton to visit Patchwork By Sea  was also very welcome. 
Lovely ladies in all  three shops, an added bonus to some time away.
Being December, harvest is in full swing in Northern Victoria across to Adelaide.
Trucks and farm machinery everywhere.
