Long Weekend

We've just had a long weekend for the Queen's Birthday, so I decided to make it extra long and take a leave day on Friday to catch up on a few things that needed to be done around the house.  ChaCha came for a sleepover on Friday night and after she went to sleep, I watched the British crime dramas on ABC and stitched down the binding on Pathways and Crossroads



 
 
 
This is the second time I've made this design and I think I have enough of the blue border fabric for one more (one day ...).

On Saturday Mum and I went to the Opera House for the "Last Night of the Proms" - it's such a fabulous concert with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra and a guest singer.



We had fantastic seats - centre of the front row in the circle.


Funniest part of the concert was the "March from Thunderbirds" where Guy Noble, the conductor, was dressed as a Thunderbird and conducting as though he was a marionette - hilarious.


I snuck a photo right at the end of the concert while the streamers were being thrown.


Sunday, after some secret sewing, Mum and I went to see "Churchill" - set in the days leading up to D-Day.  Monday was mostly spent in the sewing room with more secret sewing and then some "Wish Upon a Star" blocks.
 

Another 8 to put together then sashings and posts to be made.

This afternoon I received a photo from Sarah showing the quilting on my "Swoon" quilt - it's halfway finished.  Pretty excited about having this one finished and on my bed.
