Easter this year was pretty much perfect - lots of time with the family and friends, such great weather along with a break from work, lots of cutting out and some sewing.
The Spiegeltent has been in Wollongong and I went along to see Paul Capsis, a fabulous cabaret artist, with Jenni, Paula and Tania. Good Friday was spent at Karen's place for a sewing day with Karen, Paula and Rhonda. I was working on a new secret project. This is all I have to show for my day's efforts: I am definitely not a fan of foundation piecing but will persevere with this one (maybe in June).
Afterwards, I went to see "Their Finest" - such a wonderful movie. I took Mum to see it on Monday and she thought the movie was so authentic, having lived through The Blitz in UK during WWII.
Saturday I picked up Gulliver for a sleepover at Nanna's - we had lunch with Jenni and Kurt The Favourite and a visit/play with ChaCha on the way home. Easter Sunday all the family came for lunch - was so lovely to have everyone together around the table and that night I went back to the Spiegeltent with Lynell, Robyn and Paula to see "Velvet", a fabulous show - the best part was the hula hoop guy. So entertaining.
Easter Monday was spent in the sewing room - I had cut out a jelly roll quilt called "Zen and the Jelly Roll" - very quick to piece.
The whole quilt top was together by Tuesday morning.
Wednesday was another trip to Sydney and a quick visit with my sweethearts and on Thursday my girls came to visit. Friday night ChaCha came for a sleepover.
One of the quilts I cut out during the break was for a Low Volume Log Cabin Quilt:
It's great to be using up so much of the stash and loads from my scrap drawers.
