I'm Back

Well after a week of travelling by bus around parts of New South Wales and Victoria I am back home again.
We had a wonderful time and saw parts of our great country that we have not seen before and ate good food so what more can one want out of life.
One of the places that we visited was the National Wool Museum in Geelong in Victoria.
There were many great things to see but the thing that impressed me was the display of cakes and sandwiches that had knitted --yes I said knitted.
They looked so real and it was very clever how they had been done.In the top photo the Pink cakes with coconut sprinkled on them and whipped cream in the centre are all knitted and the plate on which they are sitting is knitted also.
The second photo represents a tray of sandwiches in which everthing is knitted.
And lastly a strawberry cream pie all knitted again.
How cool are these.
They would be great if you were on a diet wouldn't they?

Glad you are back safe and sound Doreen. Sounds like you had a wonderful time!
The photo's you took at the wool museum are amazing.
Can't believe that the sandwiches are knitted (they look so real).
Missed visiting your blog each day.

Hi Doreen, it looks so funny and very realistic. If you don't enlarge the picture you think those are real strawberry's. Glad you're back.

These knitting are amazing - I thought the sandwiches was real!
