Follow me if you will.....

wish my legs always looked that long
 along this waterway here, we are heading to...
 The Perth Quilt & Craft Show, how lucky was I then that this happened to be on in Perth the same time I happened to be there
 lots of goodies to look at, eye candy galore... I know you get the picture!
 and some very stunning quilts to look at
 and I do mean stunning

very picturesque don't you think...
this was my favorite stand... I am really very into vintage at the moment, and brights ~ that's like chalk n cheese huh..
off for a walk now.. in the sunshine, and warmth
enjoy your day!
