After breaking my personal rule of avoiding the Monash Freeway at all costs, I spent a lovely afternoon at the Beaconsfield Quilters Exhibition. They are a very friendly group, and I found a fellow scquilter among them.
This cute wall quilt was first painted using Derwent Intense pencils and then embroidered. A clever interpretation of a Smee Designs stitchery pattern.
With only 29 members they put on an impressive show, with lots of visitors and an abundance of shops. So many it was hard to avoid a few bits and pieces.
On the way home the freeway jammed up, fortunately I was near an exit ramp, so I went back to Berwick and took the winding foothills route home. Much more pleasant.
