What a busy weekend I have had, with the highlight today being a family BBQ at home with all of the Grandies ( yep all 7 of them came for lunch).
On Friday DH and I had a lovely seafood lunch with some friends. On Saturday we got up at 5am to get to the gates of the Oak bank races at 6.30 am for a cooked breakfast in the car park. It was a lovely day relaxing with a group of friends, We have been to the Oakbank races every year for 21 years and in all of that time only missed one because that year we holidayed on the Gold Coast at Easter.
Yesterday was my Dads birthday, and dad loves curry, so I spent the day cooking him a feast and enjoyed an evening meal with mum and Dad last night to celebrate his birthday.
And today was Grandchild day. My daughter Sheree ( Auntie Sheree), is the only of our kids with out babies (yet) and she made her nieces and nephews the cutest bunny Easter baskets for an Easter egg hunt. The pics say it all.
Look Mitchell, there is an egg in the bush
Jack found some in with the pansies
On the sewing front – well, there has hardly been any. I have almost completed block 6 of the GDO quilt, and have drawn up and completed the appliqué on block 7 ready for stitching this weekend.
I have also pinned my Marmalade diamonds quilt ready for quilting, and I have cut the binding ready to stitch onto the little sailboats quilts so there are two quilts almost ready to tick of the UFO pile.
I have started knitting my scarf as well – while I was relaxing at Oakbank.
