Fun in my fabric world....

A day in Hobart....

Has been quite fun. It started like this....
Then I visited The Needlewoman...where I purchased some nice linens.
Then off to historic Richmond. A really pretty town where we saw the old stone bridge...


And visited the gaol. I wonder if SB was tempted to lock me in???


From there we headed to the Cascade Female Factory where they had a metal interpretation of the Rajah Quilt.


Walked through Cascade Gardens and the looked at the Cascade Brewery...which I thought looked a bit like an insane asylum! That is what beer will do to you!


We headed up Mt Wellington, but the temperature plummeted to 9C and the rain started! Chilly, chilly, chilly! But the views we caught were great.


From there it was off to New Town and The Quilted Crow. A lovely shop in an old church.


Then back into the city to watch the rain come in.

Isn't Tassie beautiful. We have been there twice and just love it. Haven't been to Quilted Crow as yet...maybe another time. Enjoy your tripping around. I'm really enjoying your virtual tour.
