Big Weekend

Slowly recovering from my big weekend in Sydney - had such a fantastic time.  Always so lovely to spend time with friends with no real itinerary/agenda, except to visit the Quilt Show and go to Kristen Chenoweth's concert.  Very few photos were taken.

The Quilt Show was wonderful this year - so much talent on display and many tempting goodies to buy.  Lorraine, Diann and I did our bit for the economy, especially Lorraine.  I found everything on my list, so was a happy shopper.


Lorraine was in charge of the purse for the weekend  - we even had change at the end of our time together.

Enjoying post-quilt-show/pre-dinner drinks.
Had some time for a bit of knitting - squares for the "Wrap with Love" annual project.


Lorraine left us on Sunday morning to travel to her next destination and Diann and I spent the day in the city before it was time to take Diann to the airport.  That evening my friend Barbara came up to Sydney and we stayed in a lovely hotel.  On Monday morning we went to the cafe where Michael is the chef for breakfast then spent the rest of the day shopping - once again was able to buy everything on my list (plus a couple of extras).

Monday evening we met up with Elizabeth and Barbara's husband at the Opera House for dinner followed by probably the best concert I've ever been to.  Aside from having The Most Incredible voice, Kristen Chenoweth is genuinely delightful and this was so evident throughout the concert.


Back at the salt mines yesterday - was a bit tired by the afternoon.  Thank you Diann, Lorraine and Barbara for such a fantastic weekend - loved every minute.

Hello Lynda,

If you are tired and broke it must have been a super weekend. Have fun making up those things in the bags.

Happy days.
Bev.

Glad you had a great time as I am exhausted just reading about it. I hear the quilt show wasn't as good as the last one, not as mant exhibits/stall holders.
Looking forward to seeing what you spent your hard earned cash on :)
