GDITC 2012

Soo last weekend was my annual road trip to Girls Day In The Country in Nundle NSW, about a 5.5hour drive from me. Fortunately this year I had a travel partner - Sandy - which was nice, makes the trip go so much quicker.We got their a bit late on the Friday due to wonderful Sydney traffic and lots of roadworks so we missed out on Show & Tell of all the Brilliant quilts these very talented ladies had made, but I did manage to get a quick snap of "nibbles on the lawn" before heading to dinner.
we headed off to dinner where it was great to catch up with everyone from previous years and NUndle "virgins" LOL

Our tutor for the weekend was Sue Daley, who makes magnificent quilts from English Paper Piecing and that evening she had a Trunk Show to tell her story and show off her designs.

The next day we woke up to a rather chilly Nundle....

But it turned into a glorious day and we had a lovely time in the Nundle hall!

 When I downloaded the photo above I noticed Deb waving LOL

Our table - I stole your pic Sandy LOL

We had 2 projects on the day designed by Sue Daley and they were both sewing keeps of different shapes. ONe used the clamshell paper piecing method and the other one used stars & hexagons. I did the clamshell one as that was the one that Sue was teaching mostly.

Our goody bags...........
 Morning tea............beautiful as always!

 Here is a pic of my work, I managed to get 3 rows of the clamshells done, heaps more than I have done in the last 2 years on the day LOL

Here are just some pics of Sue's work that she had on display..

And of course we had to have our annual bloggers photo - our group gets bigger every year!!

I really should tag everyone, will try to come back and put links to everyone's blogs.

Another great weekend, fantastic friends and even a little bit of sewing!!
