The Country Quilt Co

Prior to the retreat I had to do some shopping for supplies.  But visiting one quilt shop did not give me enough of a fix, so on the spur of the moment Margaret and I decided to head to Ipswich to see if we could find The Country Quilt Co.  It's a delightful shop with a friendly owner.  She made us a cuppa and we had a good old natter after we did the rounds of all the goodies in the shop.  Suzanne was telling us about the resident ghost, and how she is restoring the building to its original state.  It started out as a miner's cottage, a small one room dwelling.  Over time it's been added to, and when Suzanne bought the building, half of it was a Post Office.  So there are no doubt plenty of stories the walls could tell!!!
