Prior to viewing an exhibition of the Essendon Quilters at the Incinerator Gallery, I walked the circuit of the Maribrynong River. 7,794 steps.
The joys of childhood, would love to have had a play on the pirate ship!!!
My car on the other side of the river......3,509 steps it took to reach it.
The Incinerator Gallery.
Designed by Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin.
The Essendon Incinerator complex at Holmes Road, Moonee Ponds was built in 1929-1930 and operated until 1942 as a solution to the environmental and technological problems for disposing of rubbish.. The two surviving buildings comprise a large incinerator building with three incinerator units and distinctive 8m high chimney. The incinerator building is constructed of reinforced concrete and brick, rendered externally, and is dominated by its asymetrical, terracotta tiled roof. Three furnaces survive internally, largely intact

Seven Sisters Raffle Quilt 2018
The public who view the quilt have been asked to give it a name.
Some very unusual names were added to the suggestion board.
Paint Chip Challenge.
My friend Sue has her beautiful entry displayed at the top left hand corner.
I think the members were given 3 paint chips in an envelope and asked to make a small quilt using those colours.
Some amazing entries.
