Happy Easter

Happy Easter to you all.
I hope you are having a wonderful time spending this break with your family and friends. What have you been up to?

Yesterday we decided to head up to Nundle for the annual Chinese Festival. We had a lovely morning wandering around looking at all the different stalls and activities that were happening.

Here I am with my babies (I didn't realise how tall DS is getting until I looked at this photo although I am kneeling down).
This is hubby with the kids

And of course a trip to Nundle would not be complete without a visit to see Kerry at Cottage on the Hill. I really wasn't planning to buy any fabric (lol), just to have a little visit but as soon as I walked in I spotted this gorgeous fabric by the door. It is Rural Jardin by French General and it is just delicious. I purchased Rosalie Quinlans Little Patchwork Village pattern a while back and was waiting until I spotted the right red, white and pink fabric. I ummed and ahhed for about mmm... a minute .... and then thought what the heck.

I also purchased this pattern a couple of weeks ago from Sarah's online store
and last week visit our local patchwork shop and purchased this fabric and ric rac to make a pin cushion for a friend's birthday. I am going to be very lazy and not do any stitching on it but I think the fabric and gorgeous button will do the trick.

I have been doing stacks of stitching on my Gardeners Journal quilt but will leave that for another post.
Chat soon
