Melbourne

We are back from a few days in Melbourne with my sister and travelling with Eva was surprisingly easier than I thought. After twins doing anything with one child is not that bad.
We caught trains and trams and walked and walked. Much food was eaten and a little bit of shopping. I even found my dream shoes, but at $369 they didn't come home with me. It was so nice to see fabric in real life that I usually only see on the computer screen. I made it to Amitie, Meet Me At Mikes, Tessuti and the Melbourne Design Markets where I bought some great Ink and Spindle fabric. I can't ever see myself living in a city, but Melbourne is one city I would think about living in.
Today has washing and cleaning and sorting and hopefully tonight a little sewing.

Glad it was a nice trip for you. And my little one is a good traveler too unlike my oldest. We never left to go anywhere in those days. :) I love the pears. :)

melbourne is an easier city to live in! but my husband's family can't understand why we think it will be hard to take 10 month old twins and a 3 year old to melbourne for a holiday. they have said what is the problem? um hello 3 small children for a weekend requires a lot of planning and won't be a holiday for this mummy!

amitie is my favourite store in melbourne, I just love it and miss it so much!
