January 2015

Happy New Year to all . I hope you have all enjoyed you holiday season. I was lucky enough to visit a couple of beautiful patchwork shops while I was in Victoria.  Gayle's Patchwork Emporium in Ballarat  was just beautiful. Gum tree Valley near Timboon was also beautiful. Thought you might like a peek.
