Well it wasn't your ordinary party...


 ....but it was still joining the celebration....going to a quilt exhibition and having a lovely day out was a great way to be a part of the Chookshed's birthday bash. (certainly not my usual Saturday routine!!)
Saturday morning saw myself and one of my Friday group stitching friends heading up the highway to a quilt exhibition.  It was a frosty start to the day so a little care on the roads was needed at first but what a lovely sunny day it turned out to be.
It was also the annual Steampunk Weekend in the same town so there were quite a few people of all ages dressed up.  Here are a few shots from the day....
an old traction engine making its way down the street
a view from the side
Steampunk Central perhaps...

wandering the streets of the historical precinct we came across this contraption
..and if you look closely you can see some people dressed up in the background.

And so what about the Quilt Exhibition..well this car was parked outside the hall to show us where it was.. 
..and I think I will save that report for tomorrow...
