It's a thank you present for Ronnie Di Stasio, the owner of Bar Di Stasio here in St Kilda, he has the most amazing food you can imagine and has been more than generous with feeding me on quite a few occasions. My husband Colin does Ronnie's security systems for him and when he's gone above and beyond Ronnie has done the same and fed us in return. If you've ever eaten at Di Stasio you'd know a thank you present is well deserved!
Ronnie has a winery in the Yarra Valley and produces a world class Pinot Noir, which is why I thought it should be the focus of this mini-quilt. He is also an avid art collector, of names far, far more well known than my own so I do hope he likes this.
I figure at worst, it's small enough to hide in his cupboard :)
