Cricket, A Trip to Geelong and Sewing!

 Last Wednesday I took Mitchell into the MCG for a cricket clinic with David Hussey and the Melbourne Stars T20 Big Bash League (Twenty20 cricket). That's Mitchell with David.
 They timed Mitchell's bowling speed. I think his
 top speed was 87km per hour
After the clinic, everyone could get autographs. With Cam White, the captain of the Melbourne Stars.
 Mitchell under the new Shane Warne statue.
 Friday we headed down to Geelong and met up with 
our next door neighbours.
After a pleasant walk along the foreshore, we had pizza for lunch. Then Colleen and I just had to skip off to a couple of quilt shops! I don't know if Greg's very happy with me as I showed Colleen a quilt shop she didn't know was there! lol
I finished off my Sewing Case. I'm very pleased with how it's turned out. I'm even pleased with how the zip went in. I don't usually do zips!

Looks like Mitchell had a great time at the cricket clinic. Wonderful memories for him.
Lovely day spent with friends too and of course you had to do a little fabric shopping. Sew nice of you to show your friend a new shop. LOL
Just love the sewing bag Christine.

What a fantastic day for your Mitchell! I've been following the BBL on tv here at night, great to stitch and watch/listen at the same time. lol
Your sewing case is gorgeous, well done on getting the zip thing mastered!
