Some Sewing and Socialising

Today I did a little bit of sewing while waiting to see if I was able to catch up with my (traveling around Oz) mum and (traveling around the world) son. 
I had some "help" working on my Trip Around the World quilt. This is our Sunday Stitchers challenge quilt for 2015 and is stitched by hand. 
I managed 2 more "trips". I'm enjoying this! 
I also made one of Lori Holts design boards. This has been on my "To Do" list for ages. Very handy and I think another square one is on the cards. 
The boys and I had a beer and ping pong catch up at Archive in West End after James finished work. Love this pub with its quirky interior, comfy lounges and book shelves brimming with books and unusual bits and pieces. 
Best of all, we got together for dinner with Mum and Frank. Great little restaurant, Quan Thanh in West End, serves Vietnamese, Chinese and Malaysian meals from 2 combined restaurants. The food is wonderful, the service is impeccable and the prices are really good. 
So many great dishes to try and share. 
This was sooooo sizzling good! 
So hard to get a serious photo of my boys these days!!! 
Finished a fabulous day off with chai tea and baklava (thanks Mum it was delicious!).  Had so much fun and enjoyed every second being with these special people in my life. 
Hope you're having a great week!
