Here is a pic of them with Janelle Wind:
It was a fantastic weekend where I got to meet some other bloggers in real life. After I got home one of the girls called me to see if I got home OK and my son said "So they are real people then, not imaginary" LOL. He calls the people I chat to on the net my imaginary friends LOL - not any more!
It was an almost 6 hour drive for me but a pleasant drive.
I headed up to Nundle on Friday.
This is Kerry's shop on her property:
When I got there we visited Kerry's shop and made a few purchases and chatted about how exciting Saturday was going to be. When we got to Kerry's shop we were surprised to meet Janelle Wind there, who had also come up to join in the fun. You must pop over to Janelle's blog to check out her new quilt which will be a block of the month. It is absolutely gorgeous! It is beautiful to see in real life.
On friday evening Kerry put on soup and damper for those who wanted to come and meet before the big day.
Most of us bloggers were staying in the pub.
Here we all are:
Leanne Beasley, chookyblue, Janelle Wind, Bloom, Day-days, Gai (no blog), Jellywares, Rosie, dragonflycrafts, living in paradise, lzilulu, me on the end and Happy in Quilting in the front.
Saturday was a gorgeous sunny day but we were more excited about what was going on in the hall LOL
Kerry and her ladies had done a magnificent job of decorating the hall and we each got a goodie bag with a stitchery kit from Leanne and an applique kit from Rosalie, as well as some other goodies.
I decided to do the needleturn applique as I have never done this before so it was good to learn how to do something new.
The day was fantastic, with lots of talking, laughing, eating and of course stitching!!
Leanne & Chookyblue:
Throughout the day Kerry gave out lucky door prizes and I scored one of the major prizes of a bundle of 37 fat quarters of fabric called Bees Knees. It is lovely colours, I was a very happy vegemite LOL
That night over 20 of us had dinner at the pub and were joined by Leanne & Rosie. It was a great night, although very cold as you can see by the photo. We couldn't all fit in the dining room so we ate on the upstairs verandah of the pub and the owner brought us a load of blankets to wrap ourselves in LOL
Many partied on into the night, not me though, I headed off for an early night after not getting much sleep the night before due to a biker couple having a domestic dispute at 2am in the room next door!!!
Oh we also shared the town with a Motorcycle club for the weekend!!
Sunday dawned sunny again and after another lovely bacon & egg breakfast we headed back on out to Kerry's before leaving. I think a few people were feeling a bit under the weather this morning LOL
After making some more purchases at Kerry's I headed back for the 6 hour drive home. Here is a pic of some fabric I bought called Day in the Country, very appropriate LOL
I also bought some of this - Posh by Moda:
Different from my usual style but I just love these new ranges.
It was a wonderful weekend, met some wonderful people. Kerry did a fantastic job of putting the whole weekend together, she put in a lot of hard work and it all went very well on the day.
Thank you to the blogger and Narromine girls who made me feel very welcome as part of their group. Can't wait until next time!!!
