How's this for a once in a lifetime opportunity? THE 2018 Melbourne Cup is visiting our little town of Mt Perry yesterday and today. 100% of the gold for this year's cup was mined at the Mt Rawdon Goldmine on the outskirts of town.
A real goosebump moment ... very special.
This is the address to view the story behind the making of this year's cup. (Sorry I can't link) https://vimeo.com/278493566/f0ebe00733
Back home and another gold finish for me ... Ruth's Quilt is a completed top ... love, love love it. Sitting on a queen bed, you can see it doesn't quite cover so I'm planning on adding a narrow black border and a 2nd border using the left over black/white rectangles.
My new shopping bag is also finished and holding my byo mesh fruit/vege bags. This one is from IGA ... a little paint, fabric and a doily it it has a whole new look.
Onward with the knitting needles and crochet hook ... what project will be next pst the finish post?
