Brim...

Easter Tuesday (yes I know that was six months ago but I came across the photos and thought why not!) I had to go to Stawell first thing to drop something off...it was a lovely day and I didn't have to go to work so I thought...well, I'm already in Stawell, why not keep on and go to Warracknabeal to the patchwork shop [Quilters Harvest].   On the way to Warracknabeal it occurred to me that only a short (20km) further on are the painted silos at Brim...yes, there was a theme of oh I'm here why not go there to the day...so on to Brim it was...
The information board in the paddock across the road...
View from a distance takes in the whole scale...silos aren't small...
With acres of room and plenty of cars parked on that side without blocking the view/effect and a paddock across the road to park in, the tool in the 4WD with caravan stops dead in front of the silos.


Finally, after about 15 minutes, a clear view of the whole effect...
The detail in each portrait is amazing...Four local farmers...three men and one woman...



Then it was back to the patchwork shop which I don't get to go to very often but it is one that I always enjoy visiting...Not the intention when I left the house that morning but a nice unplanned way to spend a day off...

Happy Stitching...
