We then went to see "Jersey Boys" - what a fabulous show; sensational singing and a great story.
Monday was a busy day: baking in the morning, lunch with Mum, sock-knitting lesson for Diann (on four needles) and then the friends started arriving for dinner. Jenni joined us for dinner too.
Shortly after dinner, the stitching girls came over for the evening and we had a show and tell of our Floral Bouquet quilts. Earlier this year Diann and I decided to make this quilt and I asked the stitching girls if they wanted to join in too.
Paula's pretty and fresh quilt top is almost together.
Diann's quilt top, in Aviary with a few added fabrics from her stash, is ready to be quilted, after which she will scallop the outer border.
Sharon's wins second prize - she is about 2/3 through quilting. Her quilt is very pretty - she's added an embroidered vine along the caramel sashing and also pearls at the centre top of each flower. The fabrics in the flowers are all from her stash.
Tuesday morning came and we drove back to Sydney to go shopping at Peter's of Kensington (had lunch there too - delicious). Too soon it was time to go to the airport for Diann to catch her flight home.
Back at work yesterday and today but I'm having tomorrow off to take Mum to Goulburn - my nephew has his attestation ceremony (passing out parade) at the NSW Police Academy. We are all so proud of him.
It's been a great week so far.
