Robyn asked me not to put her photo up on my blog so you won't find her here. (TIP: Look on Facebook)
But I have put together some images that I took when visiting her home. It was just the most generous gesture to open her door to the public. Some of the highlights for me were the embroidered books that were scattered around. A beautiful way to keep memories.
The little kick-nacks.
Her order of Australia displayed on a beautiful old embroidered cloth.
The antique baby bonnets crocheted using silk thread and bullion stitch.
The dresser with Xylonite pieces.
The original Gumnut Baby quilt and that collection of post cards that went right around the room.
Those jelly beans that were in dishes throughout the house.
Glancing out the window there was a small fish pond complete with gold fish.
Old quilts and new quilts. All her quilts are hand pieces and hand quilted. (The ones on the dinning room table were piled high.) And her huge collection of Xylonite pieces.
The garden was full of quilts.
I should have noticed these things as I came in but I did see them as I left. The big clam shell full of floating camillias. So old Queensland. (She has over 100 camillia trees in her garden.)
The bush seed pod wreath on the wall.
Her Mother's flowers.
And that bird bath.
Thank you Robyn.
