Busy, busy, busy

10 September 2010

I am very excited that the quilt I made on the trip has been accepted for Australia Wide 2 exhibition that will open at Fairfield Gallery in Sydney on 22 October. It was strange making my Snowscape quilt in the hot north. I was pleased with it and I am glad that it was chosen. My other quilt, the one that I preferred, Coral Dance missed out.

We’ve just been so busy and there has been so much going on. I still haven’t finished the quilt. Very frustrating. On Monday the weather in the mountains was just awful. Visibility was nil. So indoor activities was the go for the day with the grandchildren. On the way down the mountain we saw Police and SES going up the mountain and realised that someone must be missing. It was quite distressing hearing that a young teenager was missing and later that he did not survive in these weather conditions. On Tuesday the kids were excited seeing the helicopters coming and going from a landing spot right near the lodge. It was a lovely sunny day but just so tragic. It was also interesting to watch the unfolding of the end to the election cliffhanger.

On Wednesday we headed back to Canberra with the grandkids as on Thursday we were taking our granddaughter to see Swan Lake on Ice. What a fabulous show! She absolutely loved it.

We caught up with our grandchildren in Canberra. Then back to the snowies for grandparents day at the day care centre and a 5 year old half pipe birthday party in the snow. My daughter made a beautiful mermaid cake for the occasion.

Then on Sunday we caught up with the oldest grandchildren as they were down for the day.
It has just been so busy!
