Back in the land of blogging

I am sorry I have been away from blogging all these weeks. I am having trouble with my photos so have nothing to show but I thought I had better put something here or you will think I have given up. Since coming back from Nundle, I have had three days of golf, two in Dubbo which we won't talk about and one in Narromine, where I broke my handicap to 27. Then it was off to Ridgecrest retreat. Its a Baptist conference centre. 13 quilters went, we share accommadation (3 to a room), all meals are catered and we all sew and laugh and eat!!!I played golf today and broke my handicap again to 26. A grade!!! I am going to Sydney tomorrow (Thursday) to babysit my grand children.Will get the photos sorted out when I return.Thankyou to everyone who made Nundle so enjoyable, and also to all those who were at Ridgecrest, What a wonderful life I lead.

The Designers

This photo was taken at the Girls Day in the Country . Rosalie Quinlan, Leanne Beasley and Janelle Wind. Kerry Swain (Cottage on the Hill) organised the whole thing. 103 ladies attended the day at the local community hall. It was beautifully set up, each person having their own place with a bag of goodies with a name on it waiting for them. The food was delicious and plentiful. Thanks to all who helped with the catering and the organising.
