Weekend away celebrating

This past weekend the mums side of our family travelled to The Entrance to celebrate my uncles 80th.

Had a great time reconnecting with family. I think my baby girl felt the goodbyes, crying as everyone left after breakfast Sunday.

We mum and my girls went to the pelican feeding, visited a beach and generally had a great time.

Here are some pics.

Quilt top finished

It began with a long weekend of activity.
I had my friend come and stay, she travelled from Swan Hill to see us girls.
After a haircut and takeaway breakfast we opened up the jelly rolls and started up the sewing machines.

My jelly roll was Sunday Supper. I purchased it from my local quilt shop-Nellies Country Flair.

The pattern I chose was a tutorial by Missouri Quilt Co called Crossing Paths. It is quite similar to that of a scrappy trip but I liked the idea of the dark being in all blocks.






This past weekend I went to the class at the shop - it is one of two great groups I go with. It's funny but this group has teachers and the other group nurses! All wonderful ladies.
I finished sewing the rows, adding the two borders and now it is ready to be sandwiched. My goal is to get this ready for the Forbes Country Show. Haven't entered many items but will have a few for this year.

Hope you all had a great weekend as well.

up to Pitt st Mall

Wyndham accommodation.

Then....
Wyndham - Pitt St- Cockle Bay - Wyndham

A total of 16253 steps for the day and don't my feet know it
