blog meet.......

I know i'm a bit slow on getting this one up but it was very late when i got home Sunday night..............and i've been chasing hoses watering etc here...............and then I fell asleep last night part way thru the post so here we are..........3 days late.......
pretty hot day yesterday, the thermometer said 36 deg.........I had the fan on all night.......very different to the super pleasant 24-25 in Bathurst on Saturday when we had our blog meet...........summer is here for sure..........
Saturday was wonderful.............meeting old/new bloggers..........it's like meeting up with best friends since you have been getting to know them for so long in some cases.............
Anita and Sandy headed west from the city.....I head in from the bush..........the others weren't quite so far - Deb, Khris, Kate (and non bloggers Alison)..................the km's we do for a blog meet............
Anni in front of her Some Kind of Wonderful book - quilt My Favourite Things.........
I seriously want to make the blue/cream quilt on the left..........it's in the book too...........
the chrismas display in the shop..........lots of gorgeous things everywhere...........
Deb and Khris being served by the gorgeous Margaret (not in photo)
thanks for the great service Margaret I know you will be reading this....you always make our visit so lovely.................
Not quiet sure what Kate was doing with my hexagon bag..........nice "hat".......NOT...lol...........

I am determined to get Anita doing a little EPP.............she is going to GDITC in March where Sue Daley is the tutor and she has to do some then.............this little hexagon flower can be a starter...........I wonder if it is finished yet............Anita????

a super delicious lunch...........the lady just locked the door and left us sitting there chatting while they did there own jobs tidying and preparing for the evening....................
Lucky Kate didn't get away with my little sewing bag from Janet......I'm thinking my little bag might need a security guard all the girls what to keep it for themselves..........no matter where I go................
Great idea Anita to meet up and so glad the date worked............we will definitely be doing this again sometime next year..........
shopping well yes I did some and some is secret............so well skip that post probably............

  5. What a lovely time you all had maybe next year I might come , as I would like to meet you all in person ;). Think the hat is cute but much better suited as a bag . Summer is truly on it's way and it's going to be a hot one hope you get some rain soon .
