Airing the Quilts - Steiglitz - Part 4

 Dia Duit, I was captured with this satin quilt. Sewn to the hexagons were mother of pearl buttons, all shapes and sizes. I love love mother of pearl buttons and have a small stash.

 We walked to the courthouse, which holds historical records pertaing to Steiglitz. I looked up the cemetry records and found early relations, on my mothers side, buried there.
Check this corner out, at Meredith.The furniture is made from concrete. To conclude, our day, we had lunch at a nearby cafe. Scrummo. I had Corn fritters with salad, mushrooms, bacon and relish. Shez had fish and chips and our mandatory poison, coke cola. Slan, O'faigh

Airing the Quilts - Steiglitz - Part 3

 Dia Duit, from what I can understand the Airing of the Quilts is held every two years. I went some years back to the first one.This time instead of one person organising and looking after the quilts, that would be such a hard job to do. Apparantly, you bring your quilt and hang it up, look after it yourself. Next time, I will bring along some of my quilts, a chair, picnic lunch and some quilting to do.
It was so so peaceful, and good for my soul. I am a country girl at heart, however DH spent his early life by the ocean. Slan, O'faigh

Airing the Quilts - Steiglitz - Part 2

 Dia Duit, much of the properties are privately owned.To date Steiglitz has a small population and only nine buildings have survived.
 Moning tea was at Sugg's Blacksmith's cottage. A glass of real lemonade and scones jam and cream.

 An artists studio, would love to have this as my quilting room.
 This quilt captured the essence of fall.

Airing the Quilts - Steiglitz-Part 1

Dia Duit, upon my travels a couple of weeks ago, I saw a sign advertising Airing of the Quilts at Steiglitz. An old gold mining town located out of Geelong, which was established in late 1855. I met with my buddy, Shez. It was great to have such good company. Airing of the Quilts continued in next part. Slan, O'faigh
