Friday the troops came over and spent the day painting the house - I painted poles and top rails for the lattice fence. Great niece and great nephew had an Easter egg hunt in the garden - that was a lot of fun.
A bit of sewing Friday night to put together the first few "Pathways and Crossroads" rows. Might do some more next weekend.
Saturday Jenni and I went shopping in Sydney- didn't buy much at all, so will keep looking for some new work clothes. Met up with all the kids and Matt's Mum for dinner - great food at a new creperie in Randwick.
Very lazy Easter Sunday - faffed around in the morning then decided to make a Sew Together Bag. I bought this gorgeous fabric when I visited Ballarat Patchwork last July with Helen, Jenny and Norreen.
It's 85% cotton/15% linen blend and looks like 100% linen. I decided not to use the green scallop on this bag but will on the next Sew Together Bag I make.
Really pleased with how this turned out although wasn't too keen on sewing through so many thicknesses to attach the side bindings - broke quite a few needles. Jenni came over for dinner on Sunday night and was very happy to take this home.
A few errands yesterday morning then more painting and the long weekend was over.
