Road Trip!

Yesterday Karen, Paula and I drove to Bathurst to the annual Bloggers Meet.

Bag packed for Show and Tell along with present for swap
First stop was Anni's wonderful shop, The Home Patch.  Bought a few things - pretty restrained for me.

A kit of Anni decorations, Country Keepsakes Christmas decorations, some of Anni's new Christmas fabric,
glue pen refills and some metal Christmas decorations.

Was lovely to meet some new friends and catch up with dear friends.

Little Chicken (Julia), Susan, Fiona, Kylie's daughter, Kylie
Ann, Donna (Chooky) and Ros.
I was thrilled to meet Ros (Bloom) as I've made a few of her beautiful designs.

Some of our on-line group girls came along too:

Susan, Fiona, Donna, Jan, Peg and Sue
Great to finally meet Susan and Fiona - we've been chatting via email and FB for quite a while.  Always lovely to catch up with Peg, Donna and Sue and was lovely to meet Jan who travelled a very long way.

We had a little swap on the day

All the presents ready for the draw.
I received a very pretty washer and soap made by Jan


and Paula received the present I took along


Machine embroidered tea towel and hexagon coin purse.
The hit of the day was the swap present Paula brought along - a Janelle Wind apron - the pattern was in Homespun Volume 12 No 11 in 2011.

Susan modelling her beautiful apron from Paula
 We had some VIP guests attend - Peg and Dale snuck into the photo with Susan.
