My visit to Melbourne

I was staying at my daughters house and had been organising a meet up with a blogging friend.
The best news was that Jenni only lived a kilometre away from my daughter. What are the chances.
I have been following JENNI's . blog for a while now so it was great to put a face to the name.
We arranged to bus and train it into the city to meet with some other stitchers.
I don't do public transport but with Jenny's help and studying the timetables I managed.
Into the city and back before school was out. Fantastic.

One of Jenny's favourite buildings is at 333 Collins Street.

I enjoyed the Nicholas Building too.
Especially the visit to KIMONO HOUSE

Of course, the famous Flinders Street train Station is always a busy place.

The fantastic shops to look at and spend money.
I met some lovely ladies at Morris & Sons wool shop.
They meet there once a month and I joined them for a short time only.
I had met VIREYA before so it was nice to catch up again.

The art work on buildings is just amazing
