Girl's Day In The Country 2010

Well, where do I start!!

Last Friday I headed off to Nundle (country NSW) for the annual Girl's Day In The Country. It was great to catch up with old friends from previous years and make new friends.

Here are the lovely hosts for the weekend - Anni Downs from Hatched & Patched and Kerry from Cottage on the Hill.

This is a pic of the hall with everyone arriving with great excitement and checking out their goody bags to see what the projects are.

The tables were beautifully decorated with lovely fresh flowers and yummy cupcakes for morning tea.

We received kits for 3 projects, all designed by Anni. There was a cute little jewellry box with a stitchery on the top, a pincushion made from wool and a sewing compendium made from wool also.

I have never worked with wool before but love the look of it, so it was great to do something new. The pincushion was all done by hand so we could finish a project on the day - which was great. And YES, I did get it finished!! The photo below is the display one, I haven't taken a pic of mine yet.

Lots of busy stitching happening!!

Anni & Kerry's show and tell.

There's no money in there Chooky!!!:

Lots of photo taking!!

As well as lots of shopping!!

Relaxing in Cabin 6. The cabins we stay in are just lovely and very comfortable - even the lounge as I discovered LOL

Breakfast before leaving - all a bit weary but fuelling up for the long drive home.

And so it is all over again for another year. Shame it is only once a year!!!

Thank you girls for another great weekend and thank you Kerry & Anni for all your hard work - can't wait until next year!!

Hugs,

Anita
