A Very Special Weekend

Ev had her first dance concert and it was the day before Boo Poppy's 60th birthday so we had a multi celebration weekend. First my "jeanie" and all her  preparations.  I am biased of course but I thought she looked beautiful even when she had been having several dates with the tooth fairy.
After the concert we all went to dinner , and yes, there was cake and some kids keen to help blow out the candles and Boo didn't mind at all.
 He didn't mind getting help opening his presents either
 Boo didn't mind turning 40 years younger and being the Avenger Colt chose for him 
 According to Colton both Poppy's and dad had to wear the party masks he helped me buy.  Ha !Ha!  so funny at breakfast. Grandfathers will do anything for their little man.

Back to the Sewing Room

This week I have got back into my sewing room after so many weekends away. I'm quilting , stitching and trying out my new little light weight machine  I bought for lugging around to retreats and sewing days .

I'm quilting this fairy quilt for Ev.
This is my new light weight have fabric and sewing friends will travel machine. I'm making a Christmas table centre.
This is a wall hanging that will have some red and green hexagons attached, however the fabric  is actually lime green.

Today we arrived in Hobart around about lunch time. Booked into the Salamanca Inn and  went to Salamanca markets. Lots of beautiful timber goods. As we  approached each stall selling timber products you could just smell the scent of the Tassie wood. We bought a bottle of wine, some black garlic , cheese and Tassie salmon . No prizes for guessing what we will be doing this afternoon. I just love the tulips they were selling too hot and dry for those ast home. Bernie took a few minutes to do emails and rest his legs. The little tassie devil welcomed us at the airport..

Gourmet in Gundy Barbecue Cook Off

Today I was the other half in a cooking competition which is a part of the Gourmet in Gundy celebration, a bit of a foodie festival. This year the four schools in our town went head to head in a barbecue competition. Each school had to use a different meat, the choices were pork, chicken, beef and pork.  The principal of our school, Brett, and I  got to cook steak.  We chose sirloin steaks.  The challenge was to cook a barbecue meal for ten people in one hour. Celebrity chef Mat Golinski was the judge.  
We didn't win but I thought we did  pretty well anyway.

Nundle 2019

I just love going to Nundle it's one of my favourite places to sew, take a breath and just have some me time. This time I made this quilt from this lovely Australian wildflower fabric . The photos don't do it justice . When I have it quilted I will take some more photos. It actually has a very pale green and white background and the colours are so much more vibrant.

Book Week

I get so much fun out of watching the kids and Emma  dress up for book week. They looked so cute this year.
Evelyn went as Cindy Lou Who from "The Grinch". Colt was the from "The Pirate Who Wore Underpants." Although he insisted that pirates have belly buttons so he did not wear anything on his belly..Ha Ha. So you know who was snow white then.
