Girls Day in the Country

Thanks for all the lovely comments left for my birthday post.........

Just a quick post........

Girls Day in the Country in Nundle is coming around fast...........March 21 and 22 – Leanne (Leanne's House)and Rosalie (Rosalie Quinlan Designs) will be tutoring us again.........I am sure Kerry is madly planning the decorations and food - wonderful in 2008

(Leanne's Project 2008)

......last year I had a fantastic weekend...........meeting new friends, chatting with online ones in person, relaxing and chatting (opps did I say chatting already....lol........I did do lots though)......

.....as it is a little earlier in the year then last year hopefully we will not get too cold like last year on the Sat night out on the balcony............what a site.........I am sure every blanket and doona from the pub was out there wrapped around someone.........

(Rosie's project 2008)

I wonder what we will get to make this year.............any hints Rosie and Leanne?????

So who's going this year.............I know of quite a few but who else is coming along for a wonderful weekend....leave a comment here if your heading to Nundle in less then a month..............

(dh wonders why does it take you 3 days to do a one day workshop - it's all the chatting shhhh....)

Take Care Chookyblue.............
