Finished!!!!!

Here is the quilt that I have been binding this weekend. Finally finished it this morning and am ready for the big reveal. Hope Kerry gets to see it soon - Pauline saw it yesterday with 2 sides hemmed. I am absolutely thrilled with the end result!
Now, it's time for me to start work on a special bag that I am making for my partner Michèle in France as part of the GGCS. I do love finishing things but even more I like starting new ones, LOL.

Yesterday we had our local Friendship Day here in Burnie. There were almost 100 ladies and 1 gentleman - I was MC and am pleased to say that there were no complaints and everyone had a wonderful day. Lots of gorgeous show and tell, beautiful work being done and lots of chatter of course. Pauline, Debbie and Julie and Michelle from Well's at Latrobe as well as our own Christine from Stitchery Do were there with their goodies on sale. Lots of little brown bags sneaked out of the hall at the end of the day, to make their way to someone's sewing room - yes, and mine as well, LOL.

Hope everyone has survived the horrendous weather we have been experiencing over the last few days - what a Spring! Today, I am going to Penguin to sing with Segway at Arts on Fire at the local primary school, so hopefully it will be much warmer there than it was singing outside on the back of a truck at my school last Sunday. Off to "Wild Café" for lunch with friends afterwards - lovely way to finish off the weekend.
