Weekend away

It was lovely at the coast this weekend. The study group I attend goes away every year for a weekend retreat. It is great fun with good food, plenty of relaxing reading, stitching or doing puzzles and walks and swims for the energetic ones! There is a fair bit if chatting too. We began our long weekend with lunch at Batemans Bay!

I did enjoy some lovely stitching time and did a couple of my Stitch Therapy blocks. Here are the ones I have completed lately.

Art and music

We had a wonderful day out on Tuesday. First we went to the Art Gallery to see the Love and Desire Exhibition. It was amazing and so well worth the visit.

 It was very special to see some William Morris works, both fabric and gorgeous printing that was made by his famous company.

 This is William Morris's only easel painting.
 Lovely to see Michele Hill's beautiful book in the Gallery shop.
We then had a quick lunch at the Portrait Gallery and Ma and I headed to the Seniors concert at Albert Hall. It was wonderful!

Family time

We headed to Sydney last Saturday to have a family lunch. It was lovely to catch up. We don't get together that often these days.

Ma then came back to Canberra with us and we have enjoyed some lovely times with her. The great grandies have enjoyed Old Ma walking them to school and seeing them in the afternoons too

I haven't added any pictures of the littlies for a while. Here are a few random ones.

High Tea and balloons

The girls and I enjoyed high tea at the Hyatt last Sunday. It was very good and they catered for different dietary requirements so well. The platter below was a special plate for my daughter and there had been a savoury one as well. We enjoyed some lovely food too.

 Hubby went out early to capture these great pictures of the balloon festival. I was still asleep but enjoyed seeing the pictures. Thought you might like to see them too.
