A lovely Weekend at Girls Day in the Country

By now you will have seen lots of photos of our weekend away recently at the lovely town of Nundle, NSW to visit the annual Girls Day in the Country hosted by the ever-lovely Kerry Swain.
This year Sue Daley was the guest tutor inspiring us with all her English Paper Piecing.

But the weekend is even more than the Saturday event in the hall.........all weekend it is an opportunity to catch up with friends, share sewing projects, gossip, laughs, meals together, etc with our friends and bloggers. Words cannot describe how lovely it is to spend the weekend in the company of such wonderful ladies all with a common interest in sewing patchwork and quilting. Some ladies travel great distances to attend.

Here are a few photos.......


 Shopping at Kerry's Cottage on the Hill..........a real treat........
 Show and Tell on the lawn with drinkies of course.....


 Dinners out.......
 Extra special friends.......
 .....more show and tell...............
 Our cabin foursome........we had a ball.........
The annual bloggers photo......it is wonderful to have so many friends from the bloggy world all together enjoying each others company.........
Many thanks to Kerry for all the organising........more photos of Saturday to follow soon........and thanks to the special lady who first introduced me to blogging and took me under her wing (literally!!!....lol...) and introduced me around on my first GDITC a couple of years ago.........it was great to see you again......and this year another little birdie found a special place in my heart too, as we shared our cabin together and got to know each other heaps more...........talk about laugh all the time!!!.....it was fantastic...........
I hope you are all having a lovely Easter, mine has been quiet, just lovely.........I will share some sewing when I get behind the camera and take a few piccies...........
