GDITC 2011


Well, after all the excitement, all the preparation and all the emails, GDITC is over for another year!
Thanks to the super organised Kerry from The Cottage on the Hill and her band of fabulous helpers it all went off beautifully, and we can only dream of next year!
The amazingly talented Anni Downs was our tutor and we were blessed with her sweet calmness guiding us through the day. She is a great teacher and the nicest person...it was great getting to know her...and hopefully we haven't scared her off! It was nice to share our creations with her and be inspired by what she is designing.
What is wonderful about this weekend is seeing the bloggers...old and new...carrying on conversations started last year...catching up on news. I love you girls and miss you all...the laughter, the jokes, the shared interests and best of all hearing that voice singing out in the darkness..."Hey Cardy...can you be quiet!" Oh, it felt like school camp all over again! No scary teachers this time, just a motherly Chook!
Here is the first project....
I am fiddling with mine (so what else is new?)...
new patterns to covet...
Then there were completed Gardeners Journal quilts...
and their proud owners!
Miss you girls....counting the days till GDITC 2012!
So many more pics...will post them soon!
