The day was mild. Warm even! No coat required. With a few hours to fill in before collecting the 10yo, who was out of town at a maths workshop, my mum (known here as 'Oma') and I went for a little drive to Ballan where we visited the nicest patchwork shop I've ever seen! Seriously, if you are passing through you simply must stop and visit, no question about it. I could've spent hours (and lots of $$) in there but I exercised restraint, as hard as this was. Oma purchased some fabrics for her next project - a patchwork runner.
Lunch was just two steps next door in a renovated cottage that warmed our toes even though they hardly needed it. Tasty open sandwiches, excellent tea, and a comfortable atmosphere..with gardens too!
A beautiful day out with a beautiful person. xx
