What a Great Day

Yesterday my two friends Caron and Raelee and I headed up to Nundle for the Cottage on the Hill Airing of the Quilts. It was such a great sight to see all the quilts hanging along a fence along the drive way up to the shop. All cars had to park at the front gate and then we walked up the long drive admiring all the fantastic quilts on display. Unfortunately in my rush to get out the door I forgot to take my camera but the quilts were amazing and very inspiring. After lacking motivation for the last couple of weeks I am now once again full of inspiration. After looking at all the quilts were had a lovely morning tea and then headed into the shop. I have been after Anni Downs A Christmas Story for a while now so I brought the book and some fat quarters to start the quilt. When it was finally time to leave I could not believe that we had been there for 3 hours - the time went very quickly. We then headed back into Nundle and had a delicious lunch at the Goldmine and then had a look around Odgers and McClellands. Now that is a fantastic shop and I did some christmas shopping for my SIN. We had such a great day and a very big thank you for Kerry for making us feel so welcome and for all your help with our purchases.
I am now going to have some lunch and then head to my sewing room to make a start on my Christmas Quilt.
Hope you are all having a great weekend and are getting lots of sewing done.
