Today on our way to Broadford we made a detour to the town of Ballan and discovered one of the most beautiful quilt shops I have ever seen!! Some damage was done as I could not resist some Liberty cotton to make some new shirts - William Morris patterns of course!
It was so wonderful to see so much of the Liberty of London collection here in Oz
And above.....how is this for a classroom?
So light and spacious with the whitewashed walls just as Morris liked....
not just for working but also perfect to set off the gallery of quilts and the bolts of colour
And this is the gorgeous Sue who started it all. She has a restaurant and cafe next door and we were treated to warm muffins and scones.........how I wish this place was closer to home!
Sue is a "displaced RN" just like me who has 'succumbed' and been taken over by other ventures.....
The aroma from the Daphne was hypnotising as we sat in the
sun sipping coffee and indulging in the morning tea treat!
Do visit Sue's website and visit her shop at Mill Rose Cottage and
also the Mill Cottage Cafe...just divine........how lucky are all of you Victorian quilters! We WILL be back Sue!
