Fun in my fabric world....

Nundle is where I long to be...

...for at least a couple of weekends each year!
Kerry at The Cottage on the Hill really knows how to throw a great weekend...happy stitching, lots of laughter, great food and a sense of rejuvenation at the end of it all.
Great mysteries of life were explained by Anita...and it was decided that men really should stitch...LOL!
We arrived from several directions on Friday afternoon all with a desire to SEW!
After picking out fabrics & leaving the super organised Kerry to make up our kits, we headed for the famous Nundle pub for dinner...always fun, especially when some of the girls won a meat tray & half a carton of beer in the raffles. Heading back to our cabins by the river we slept in our cosy beds waking to a heavy frost & frozen water pipes...fun!
Bright & early we began stitching...so many different quilts...so much inspiration.
Stitching like mad women we achieved so much in our first day...then off to dinner at the Mount Misery Gold Mine...superb food...super company! 
Smiles and laughter...
new friends sewing together to get projects finished...
stitching into the night...
and remember children ...don't drink & quilt!
More pics of the finished articles tomorrow!

Awwww.... I really missed you guys this year! Buddy Boo slept through Friday and Saturday nights... so I could have done it!! ;) He wouldn't have been so well behaved if I was wanting to sew though!! Glad that you had a lovely time! LOL at the block sewn together the wrong way.... !

I'm guilty of drinking and sewing on retreatand that's just the sort of thing I'd do. It looks like you had a fabulous time despite the cold.
