Right next door to the hotel was a large antiques centre and dinner most nights was in the Leagues Club on the opposite corner. Can also highly recommend the 'Steak house' and 'Pipers on the Lake' too. I think we might just have to win this years footy tipping so we can go and do it again next year lol.
Some gorgeous buildings
The art gallery was also a must see for us.
'Pipers on the lake' is a must for anyone visiting Ballarat. I should have taken a pic of the interior because it is absolutely stunning.
These are two beautiful dishes Lance found at a place called 'The Mill'. Its another huge complex filled with antiques, vintage and retro things. These were from the one just outside Ballarat and there is a much bigger complex in Daylesford that we visited too.
Some sock wool and threadworx to try. I thought the thread was rather expensive at $6.60 a hank but when you think that it is twice the amount as on a DMC skein its not too bad really lol.
Misti baby alpaca. Now this was an extravagant buy! Its a two ply and so very soft. Will take a fair while to knit up as this is what I attempted in one night on 2.75mm needles. It will be totally worth the effort though.
We also found a gorgeous print with a little girl surrounded by Jack Russell's which I haven't hung yet. Will take a pic later to show you.
Not a lot to really show for the fortnight really but might have some progress next weekend on some knitting and the family stitcheries.
Thanks for stopping by.....
