Girls Day in the Country - Nundle

There's gold in them there hills. Nundle used to be a gold mining town. I think I'd have better luck finding gold at the end of this rainbow ( faint though it is) than anywere else.
Here's the pub (hotel) where we stayed. (my partner in crime Cheryl did the driving)

Then it was time to settle down to work ( well, fun really) ..... Our tutor for the day was Anni Downs.
Anni and the hard working Kerry had wonderful things waiting for us.

But we had to stop for morning tea...

These were the projects - a little fabric box


















and the inside - sorry about the sideways photo









A pincushion made out of beautiful wools

And a fabulous needlecase, which I can't wait to start making. (Oops, another sideways photo)
























And of course there are all the blogger girls.


A great time was had by all. Thanks Kerry and the gang. Yep, I'm already planning next year.

So pleased you came again, it was great to catch up with you and meet Cheryl.
Definately a partner in crime! Still in awe about the garage/quilting sale you went to with all the fabrics....
Better get cracking to finish those projects off!
Are you going to join the stitch-a-long?????
