Eliott Stitchers

For our last Eliott Stitchers of the year, we decided on a road trip, so on Tuesday we headed down to Mornington. Our first stop on arriving was for a coffee at the Blackbird Cafe

20141218-161704.jpgNext door was this shop

20141218-161811.jpgwhich looked very interesting, but we had no time to explore this trip – great excuse to go back!

Where we were really headed was Treehouse Textiles.

20141218-162024.jpgThis was my first visit since Emma moved the shop into Mornington. The shop is situated in a quaint courtyard type area off the main street, and the shop itself is a delight! So light and airy with an eclectic range of fabrics, an interesting mix of patterns – patchwork and dressmaking – lovely gifts and a good habby range.

We piled up our fabrics and Emma kindly cut and packaged while we travelled a short way down the road to Lilo Cafe for a spot of lunch. This cafe is fabulous! All the decor is greeeeen!!

And the food was sumptuous!

20141218-162912.jpgAfter lunch we headed back to Treehouse Textiles to pick up our parcels (and try to studiously avoid seeing more fabulous fabrics to buy!!), have one last chat with Emma and Cathy and then it was back on the road to home.

So that’s it. Last social party. Prepping now for Christmas Day……house…..presents…..guests……food………
