Airing of the Quilts
Saturday was Airing of the Quilts in Northampton WA so off we went on a 40 minute journey slightly inland. It was very warm and dry there and like a step back in time for me. The shops looked as though they had not changed from the era in which they were built, worn wooden floors, pressed tin ceilings and coloured glass panels above the doors and windows it was just delightful. The main street with it's parades of stores with tin bull nose verandahs and each had quilts strung outside. The old convent's verandah's were lined on both levels and the wonderful gum trees out the front had ropes strung with more perfect patchwork creations.
The old rusty gates to the convent were so lovely I thought you might like to see them too.
more from Northampton's Airing of the Quilts tomorrow.
