Nundle Quilt Airing 2011

We set off this morning, fingers crossed that the forecast rain would stay away from the Cottage on the Hill for Kerry's airing of the quilts. BUT, we  had only travelled for 1/2 hour when we found that it was raining up in the hills and the airing was cancelled...drats! But we decided to continue anyway and have a nice day out, just a bit wetter than planned. Raelee, Julie, Lea and myself had the company of my dear Mum (who was dreadfully excited about the trip to Nundle...she hadn't been there for more than forty years), and off we went to a very wet and bitterly cold Nundle. 
Here are the piles of quilts (with my Mum...she looks like she is having fun) ...
that should have been hanging here...
with these quilts that Kerry collected from us on Thursday.
Here are the lovely green hills...
surrounding the shop...a lovely day out, lunch at Mt Misery...
a visit to the woollen mill...we still had a memorable day out, hoping for better weather next year!

Bother! Sounds like you had our 'crappy' weather! Glad you still had a nice day out. We are taking my Mum on an outing next Sunday to somewhere she hasn't been for a long time, she is really looking forward to it!

Still looks like a nice day out.
Looks lovely and inviting there inside with all the quilts..Mt Misery sounds like a good name for the weather that day.

That surely counts! It's good to hear you were still able to enjoy the rest of the day. You look pretty good with those craves. Very inspiring!

I too love that last block. I wish we could get the pattern in the USA. It is unique and beautiful at the same time.
