Great Weekend

Last weekend was packed and a lot of fun.

After some housework etc on Saturday morning I went to my friend, Karen's, place to use her quilting frame - it's much longer than mine and I was able to easily fit my quilt onto it.  That saved me pulling my frame apart to add the extension pieces.

The quilting is 7/8 finished and I'm sure I'll be able to wrangle the quilt on my machines to finish it off.  Can't complete it on Karen's frame because she is now on a fabulous 9 month trip to WA and other far-flung parts of Australia.  I'm going to miss her being around and seeing her at our fortnightly get-togethers.

Saturday night was dinner out with friends before going to a local theatre company production of "Carousel" - it was a lovely night out.

Sunday The Bride came to spend the day with me.  We had a great day.  A bit of shopping, lunch at a sushi train

Coffee and chocolate baba at guess where?

We shared the chocolate baba

We went to see "Oz, the Great and Powerful" - we both really enjoyed the movie - and then it was time for her to go back to Sydney.  Fantastic day.

There has been only a little stitching happening at home (gotta love that raspberry red lipstick)

and a little bit of sewing - the Oh Cherry Churn Dash half-square triangle blocks are sewn and I'm trimming them up.

Very busy week at work - I'll be looking forward to a quiet weekend - although I think the three girls may have something planned, which would be wonderful.

The quilt on the frame is a beauty! I can't imagine being away from home as long as your friend will be gone.
