country jaunt - Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers

Mum and I took a lovely little jaunt to the 'country' today.  Toowoomba, which is about an hour and a half from Brisbane, holds an annual carnival of flowers.  For those of you from overseas who follow the news - this is where the 'inland tsunami' devastated - so it was nice to see things returning to some semblance of normalcy.

We looked at some pretty flowers.

 Before we got distracted by a quilt show (which was held as part of the Carnival).

Joye Peck - 'Insanity'

Lyn Crump - 'Serenstar - the Fire Within'


Vicky Draper - 'Christmas Wreath'  - Love this idea - might be an excuse to make some more hexagons! 

Then we got double-distracted by a Tea Pot Extravaganza!  A whole show dedicated to tea pots, tea cups, tea towels and aprons, as well as some kitchenalia thrown in.





How could a girl (and her mum) go wrong? Three of my favourite things in the world - flowers, tea pots and quilts!
