Months ago I received an email from Sydney Symphony Orchestra about the "Last Night of the Proms" concert coming up in early May. Thought it would be a great Mothers' Day present for Mum so bought tickets and off we went last Saturday. We had lunch at one of the cafes on the concourse - such a busy, bustling place.
The concert was so wonderful - beautiful music and then lots of audience singing towards the end of the second half, flag-waving, streamers etc. Loved it.
Following the concert we had dinner with Matt, Elizabeth and our little sweetheart - it was Matt's birthday on Sunday.
Finally got around to sewing the last four "Fireworks" blocks and spent some time arranging and re-arranging the blocks with some help from my friend Amy in Oklahoma - a little more tweaking and I'll be ready to put the quilt top together - can't have two orange-centred blocks next to each other. These fabics are so bright, they might even glow in the dark!
A little bit of shopping this week from a favourite shop - thinking very carefully about what to make with this lovely stack.
The Best News came yesterday with the safe arrival home of my dear friends Lynell, Darren and Robyn - they were in Nepal when the earthquake struck, trekking within a few kilometres of the epicentre. They had to walk for days over the most rugged terrain to find an area where a satellite phone worked to be able to get a message out that their group was ok and then to arrange for helicopter evacuation back to Kathmandu. So wonderful to have a chat with Lynell last night.
