12 in the group and the middle one said !!!!!!!!!!

Another very successful retreat and a big thanks to Donna - Chookyblue , for her help with a few things on my blog.

Friday afternoon saw most of my ladies for the weekend arrive to choose their designs and fabrics, ChookyBlue and her friends invited me to dine with them which was very enjoyable.

Just on dark this awful storm rolled in - Gillian had requested snow for the weekend, no snow but a good hail storm.

This is a photo of the storm rolling around the hills to the south of the shop.

This photo is of one half of the group - Jennifer (Empire Bay), Tanya (Jerrys Plains) Jeanie (Warrnambool), Diana (Empire Bay), Doreen (Kincumber), Judy (Barrington) & Kate (Petersham)
The weekend was filled with lots of chatting, laughter and heaps of sewing, all 12 ladies acheived heaps in the two days, even Donna and Gillian, who only had one row made for the photos, but believe me they had all their blocks completed.
This photo is of Janet(Dubbo) Donna - Chookyblue, Gillian, (Coonamble) Bronywn (Dubbo) and Pam also from Coonamble.

All 12 quilts were looking great, I will be looking forward to seeing them all next year for show & tell.Full group shot - you can tell they all had a good time, look at those smiles on their faces.

Thanks for dropping by, hope you enjoy looking at all the wonderful creations created on the Hill.

I think those smiles may be saying
"What goes on in Nundle at the Cottage, stays in Nundle at the Cottage" !!!!!! the quilts all look great.
