On Tuesday I had a day out with my Mum. We left at 9 in the morning and got back home about 7.00pm. In that time we travelled about 210 kilometres visiting garden centres and libraries,craft shops etc.
We had lunch at the Melville Rose Nursery Restaurant. Lots of potted tulips were around the
outside of the restaurant.
The displays were absolutely magnificent.
Pots of Tulips and Dianthus in the smaller pots. This is the view I looked out upon. The bees were having a field day.
Pots of vegies were on display around the side of the Restaurant. The meal we had was delicious and so filling. If you haven't been to eat here you must. They cook "real food."
After lunch we travelled to a nearby garden centre and I found these two Emu's. Mind you I could have bought a round the world air trip for the same price.
I loved this artwork. With the light on behind it at night wouldn't it make a great garden feature.
The same garden centre had a chook yard. Look at there lovely feather heads.
I started this little doily earlier on in the week and have finished it. I used a size 20 DMC thread and a 1.25 hook. Hopefully I have enough thread to make another one which I will add beads to the final round to make it into a Milk Jug Cover.
Tomorrow I will be joining in Friday-Night-Sew-In. I have spent this morning getting a project ready so tomorrow is set aside to sew.
