Bathurst Bloggers Meet...

Yesterday I had a fabulous day, I spent the day with my gorgeous bloggy friends at the Bathurst Bloggers Retreat in Perthville NSW. Nineteen ladies stayed for the three day weekend but I was only able to attend yesterday with Khrissy ( we were called the intruders lol) due to commitments with the kids. 



The day was filled with lots of sewing and giggles. I didn't take heaps of photos as I was too busy socialising.
Loving Trish's churn dash quilt, I saw it grow, just stunning.....


A before shot.... Janice was showing the ladies a no sew Christmas decoration....


I was naughty and wanted a pic, so I yelled Ohh my god VÈRY loud and the following pics were the result, classic!!!!

 


Anni Downs made us a kit especially designed for the day, tis a gorgeous sewing trio..... We felt soo special .....I'm sure Lea has finished hers now!!!!


A few prizes I won, I can't find my going away gifts ...sniff sniff...


Fiona and Dory madly sewing lol....


Jan (Red Shed Quilting) working away....The setup was great, I told hubby I will be definitely be there for the weekend next year!!!


Congrats to Chooky, Sonia and Kylie for organising the event....see you all next year!!!!!
