Well That Was Longer Than I Planned!

(Fair warning, this is a long post)
Goodness these weeks have flown by!
 My time in Melbourne with my DD-Y (21-26 April) was wonderful... it really was her holiday, but we both had a fab time & it did my heart good to see her decompressing after a stressful time in recent months.
 It ended up being somewhat a Festival of Football... we went to 3 games! The footy is much more her passion than mine, but it was great to see her enjoying it.
I'm an unashamed home-body, however it was nice to get a break from cooking & laundry... we even spent one evening lying on our beds, eating some chocolate & watching Bachelor In Paradise😃

It was great to take a break from the phone & social media too... which somehow continued well beyond my days away... but now it's high time to get back into things again.
*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~*

Last week I finished my blue & white quilt top... I really don't enjoy the sewing of borders & this quilt has three, so the prospect was not thrilling. Careful measuring & sewing happened, & the result has me smiling. The pattern is an old Melly & Me design.
 The backing fabric (which I'm quite in love with!) needs to be prepared & hopefully I can get a booking with my quilter this week to drop it off to her.


Some more little Festive hexy's have been made into flowers... how cute are these little guys?!
 Compare the size to a standard thread reel!
Now I look forward to popping into my favourite blogs during the next few days to see what you all have been up to lately♥
