I had a little email conversation with Bec late last week and thought it really is time for the quilt to be finished - there were 3 hearts and 6 blocks to be hand-quilted - not much at all and they were done on Friday and Saturday nights. I am so pleased the quilt is properly finished at last.

I added two extra hearts to the bottom of the "Gingham Girls" block - much happier with it now.
Reasonably quiet day at home on Saturday - lots of housework, a couple of visitors and then some time in the sewing room. Thought I'd start putting my Churn Dash blocks together. Spent ages sorting out the block placement.
I love how this is turning out - the colours look so fresh and crisp against the white.
Michael celebrated a birthday during the week, so yesterday we went to Sydney to see the birthday boy and go out for dinner. I made an orange/lemon poppy seed cake for afternoon tea. It was delicious.
Dinner, at Una's in Darlinghurst, was a lot of fun - my kids are the best company.
