We enjoyed some beautiful spring weather here over the weekend, just in time for the local Spring Festival, which was held Thursday through to Sunday. On Saturday morning Hannah and I went to the market day held in town to browse all the stalls, and to check out the Chili Cook Off. This year my work decided to put a team in and they did really well - all the chili was eaten! For a small donation you could get a small sample and all funds raised went to the charity of the particular team's choice. I haven't seen the mainstreet of our town so busy with people in many years - everyone was out and about in the sunshine, it was great to see.
Later on in the day I meet up with a friend to take a look at the Festival, which is held at a local events centre. We had a wonderful afternoon, there was at least 50 tempting stalls plus wine tasting and two cafes. I was very restrained and only bought some chocolate truffles and a handmade soap, ummm, mango butter.
It was also Father's Day here on Sunday so I organised a lunch for a few special Dads I know - we had a lovely few hours sitting out in the sunshine, munching on nibbles and partaking in a few drinks:)
The Tralala design I've been stitching for my niece is coming along quickly, I should have it finished tonight.
