The Federation Wallhanging!

Spent many, many hours at Steamtown in Peterborough.

Again with a personal tour, a shame we were there in the morning

and would miss the sound and light show only on in the evenings.


Another must see in Peterborough is The Federation Wallhanging.

A project that took over 2000 hours of research,planning, sewing,

reviewing and the ineitable unpicking when something

just didn’t look right, by 18 local women.

The wallhanging depiccts the town, with a likeness to many of the buildings.

In the top right hand corner is The Royal Flying Docter Service plane. (RFDS)

A vital service to many of these country towns.

Venus Bay was a favourite spot, with a population of just fifty

that swells in summer to over 3000. Unfortunately we were there

in an unseasonable heatwave of 40 – 42 degrees.






Another favourite was Koppio Smithy Musuem.

With many original and restored buldings.





English paper pieced hexagon quilt and a cuchion cover with suffolk puffs.

Lots of examples of redwork from the late 1800’s

and a signatue cloth from the early 1900’s.



The ancient craft of corn dollies, very fragile and behind glass.

 Many, many old sewing machines, irons, washing machine and cash registers.



 Just had to take a photo and post this.



Edward John Eyre sculptures at Kimba,

the halfway point across Australia.



We saw this Wedge Tailed Eagle on a fence post,

by the time we stopped the car and got out the camera

he had taken off along with the other adult and two young ones.
