Another Great Retreat
Well another class bits the dust, this weekend saw ladies from the Tamworth area as well as 3 from Walgett visit me for a weekend retreat. Five decided to make a mystery quilt, Pam choose my Paw Prints quilt(which has cute teddy bears appliqued across the top of the quilt) and Stef decided to make a Christmas quilt, which we just made up as we went and was looking great. All the quilts looked fabulous, even though the mystery quilts were still a long way from finished the colours were stunning. They should all look fantastic when completed, I look forward to some photo's soon.............
Sebastian and Ali were home for the weekend and spent a fair bit of time working on the farm, helping Geoffrey with cattle and sheep work.
Emily joined us for dinner last night, I didn't have the energy to cook so we ate at the local sport and Rec club. Yummy meal and no washing up.
This week is going to be huge for us, off to Tamworth in the morning, weekly class Tuesday, some time I have to sort out about 50 quilts and work out where they are all going to hang for my QUILT HANGING around the village of Nundle over Easter Saturday and Sunday, make a large yummy chocolate cake and decorate it for my parents 50th wedding anniverary, cut up heaps of kits, fabric packs and fat 1/4's to get ready for the Easter festival, then head to Dubbo Thursday to celebrate my parents 50th wedding Anniversary with a dinner thursday night, then a family barbeque friday lunch then home to Nundle friday afternoon to prepare for the weekend. Sounds far too busy but I am sure we will cope.
If anyone is around the North West of NSW over Easter then Nundle is the place to be, each year we hold our Annual Chinese Go For Gold Easter Festival, I am actually on the committee,
it is shaping up to be a bigger and better festival then last year, with at least 5000 extra people expected in town each day (Nundle has only 350 population), I am actually going to be moving my shop into the School Libary over the 2 days, which should be very interesting. So do drop in if you are in the area.
I am worn out so am heading to the spa before retiring for the evening, hope everyone has a great week, thanks for reading my blog,
Until next time, take care
