Well, aside from the normal stuff like work and family, I have clocked up a few kms, but with nice activities and friends. The hardest thing about moving eighteen months ago was leaving my sewing friends, so at the end of February I was able to catch up with some of them and sew for the weekend. It was nice to have that time with Raelee of wish2stitch, Kylie of Red Raspberry Quilts, Lea of Fairy Floss Stitches, Caron and Julie. I can't seem to link to blogs on this program! Lots of lovely sewing was done, but I didn't take many pics...too much sewing and chatting was going on! The rain was pouring down and the company was good, what more could a girl ask for?
On the way there, I stopped at a shop in Muswellbrook owned by lovely friends, Susan and Karen, Finders Keepers.
It is a seriously gorgeous gift and FABRIC shop
...a real oasis in the Hunter Valley. It is actually a bit dangerous as there is nothing not to like here. Call in and say hi from me....it is well worth visiting!
My time was spent working on my Double Wedding Ring quilt, slow progress was made, but I am enjoying it.
Lea was assembling blocks received in a recent swap.
Raelee was working on her Violet quilt...and the finish line is nearly in sight!
Loved the photo opportunity!
Kylie was making some very pretty blocks, and Caron was working on a table runner.
A good time was had by all!
The rain eased in time for me to head home, loose gravel broke my windscreen about half way home....reminded me of one of the things I hated about those country roads!
More to come!
