The best of times....Part 1.

Well, the Girls Day in the Country held in Nundle, NSW, by the delightful Kerry Swain of The Cottage on the Hill, is over for another year....but what a great day it was!
We headed off on Friday to Nundle from all over the state...stitchers heading to a sewing Mecca!
Families farewelled, pets minded, cars loaded & the adventure began...
Anni Downs from Hatched & Patched was to be our inspiration.
A gorgeous drive into the hills...lovely & green after the recent rains...how the trip flies when you have friends to chat with...guesses about what the weekend ahead will bring...much excitement!!!
A visit to Kerry's shop...what to choose...
some of these...
and some of these...
to make this.
Then out to dinner with Kerry & Anni and a fabulous bunch of women.
Late to bed after much frivolity...we need to have our stitching caps on for the next day!
....to be continued!
