What a weekend

Solomons Star block for Lynette

Huge gum in the back of Cobbity Public School
My Quilting block swap Australia partner for May is Lynette, she wanted a Solomons star in blue and white. It was finished and sent on Friday but it has been a crazy weekend so it has taken till now to find time to sit quietly and do a post.

This huge gum is at the back of Cobbity Public school where markets are held the first Saturday of the month. We were there at 8am yesterday as I wanted to purchase some cotton perle from a guy who sells it cheap, he sells all things crafty. If you are in Sydney and have never been to Cobbity Markets you are missing one of the best markets on offer, I know stall holder travel from up the Mountains and the Northern beaches to be part of them. We had breakfast of Gosleme - spinach, feta and mince cooked as you waited for it, organic coffee and hot chocolate. 

People interested in Sports Chaplaincy

We headed to Lake Macquarie, where Steve ran an afternoon information session for people interested in Sports chaplaincy. Dinner at the service centre on the F3 at Wyong and home by 9.30pm.

Happy Mothers Day to all, I had phone calls from Melbourne and Mildura, lovely Pandora charms, Cat Empire gift box (bought at Borders for $27 instead of $99 as they are closing down and selling everything off) and wonderful photos of the girls taken by Kate and Graeme. Below is my photos of Violet with Granddad and daddy.

Lily in her mummies sailor suit
Steve cooked BBQ for lunch, potato bake and salad was enjoyed in the backyard. While we were talking Kate asked about a sailor suit her grandma had bought her, I had kept it but had never got round to getting out for Lily. Well I had to go find it and Lily had to try it on, it only just fit her - the purple t-shirt underneath is a size 4 and she is not 3 yet and don't you love the purple tinkerbell socks that are just visible. I was a lovely lunch finished of with strawberry cheesecake, dark chocolate mint timtams and maltesers. I have no idea whats for dinner but don't really care had a lovely day and am ready for an early night, but wait no there is a F1 race on from Turkey tonight and the boys will be watching it.
