Easter break - Getting ready for Baradine

Easter is always a long break from work - as I don't work Thursdays that means I am off from Wednesday night til Tuesday morning....BUT this year - just after Easter - I am off to Baradine (near Coonabarabran...in case...) for - yep - you guessed - a Sewing Gig - for those who don't know - it's the replacement for GDITC @ Nundle....
As GDITC started (unofficially) Friday lunchtime - I would normally go on Thursday, so only one day off work - but Baradine starts Thursday lunchtime - so I (we...with my bestie & driver) are leaving on Wednesday - so if I had to take Wednesday as a Leave Day - I may as well take Tuesday too - so I am off work from Wednesday 28th March until 9th April....Whoopee Doo - pity someone can't do my work while I am away...oh well ...not thinking about that ATM.


So Easter has been a lot of prepping, packing, sorting,  finishing...making a secret sewing project for the Make It or Fake It swap....and a few other fiddly bits including finishing a few things for the Show & Tell session....

I won't show anything now apart from this :



(They are drying on the warmish lap top)

I decided I needed a few flowers for something ...and as I needed a largish piece of washaway stabilser, I figured I may as well make the most of it and made a few more...some of them have a specific home (shhh  ....secret stuff...) but the others will go to a friend who makes stoles for First Communions.

I do hope you have had a lovely Easter - in which ever way makes you happy.
