Girls Day in the Country

I am back from a great weekend spent in Nundle at The Girls Day in the Country. Rosalie Quinlan and Leanne Beasley were the guest tutors and it was all organised by Kerry Swain from Cottage on the Hill. What a wonderful time we had. This is the project I am trying to achieve. It is punch needle and designed by Rosalie, hers is the front of a bag. I am going to make mine into a wall hanging.

This is as far as I have got, it takes a lot of work. The grass looks a bit dodgy, its verigated thread.The golfing season starts tomorrow, we begin with 9 holes and a delicious lunch so I am, going to help organise that this afternoon, will keep you posted on how I went.

The traveller returns.

Having had the most relaxing holiday, I am back to my wonderful life.Here are just a few photos to view until I have some sewing project to display.Sydney was our first port of call.

Coffs Harbour,on the mid North coast of NSW. NSW has some of the best beaches and scenery I have ever seen, it is just beautiful.

Waterfalls at Dorrigo.

The beach at our resort at Coffs Harbour. The day after we arrived in Narromine, we were comandeered to help clean an old rental property, owned by our son. This took us the best part of ten days!!! I have got my sewing machine out and have started on a project. Looking forward to seeing all those going to GDITC at Nundle.
