Bathurst Blog Meet

I was never going to miss THiS bloggers get together... actually it's a retreat... so I drove up to Bathurst approx 4.1/2 hours away. I met lots of "old" friends & made some new ones too.
18 of us stayed Friday & Saturday nights...while others just visited for the day... but either way we ALL had a great time... laughing, chatting & some even stitched... lol
A pic of the "SleepOver Ladies" that attended...

I made a small gift for Chooky ( shed organiser) just to say THANK YOU.
Can you guess what it would be???
Yep a "chook" mini for her "shed".
We also had a  Make It ~ Bake It ~ or Fake It swap.
I choose a "make it" with a little fake it thrown in... & this is what I put together.
And guess who received it... yes...ChOOkY...

I was one of the lucky dip winners over the weekend too... receiving these cuties...
Actually I was lucky last... because a certain someone from HERE... kept WiNNinG...lol
I also managed to squeeze in a little shopping at The Home Patch... & although Anni Downs was away, her shop was still full of wonderful items.
Had a quick visit into Bathurst Fabric & Trim.
Now THaT place I could have an affair with... arrrhhh!
Fabric for my "wonky star quilt"...
And the lovely ChOOky gave everyone a little memory to take home!
I thought the "granny" kinda looked a little like me too!
THANKS ladies... for an absolutely wonderful weekend.

* * * * *
I managed a little cutting at Friday Night Sew In... an all new meaning THIS weekend... with Wendy and the gang. Will show you what I did with it later this week...
The fabric NOT the scraps...lol
Now I'm off to catch up on some blog reading...
LuV being a BLoGGeR... woohoo...
