What a Wonderful Day

Yesterday, it was great to catch up with lots of ladies here in Bathurst for a blog get together, organised by Chooky.

The first stop was Fabric and Trim, but I skipped that, as I knew the shop was quite small.  The second stop was at Anni’s, so this is where I met up with all the girls.  Some I had met before, some I have only known through their blogs and some were new to me.  It is wonderful how the common thread of blogging has brought us all together.

We all had a great time browsing at Anni’s.  Here is Kylie, Chooky and Beryl (Anita’s aunt visiting from the UK).

Susan, Jan and Fiona were quite happy chatting while waiting their turn to be served.

Peg and Dale turned up for the day and kept an eye on Anni and Chooky.

While Khrissy waited for Chooky to finish her shopping and talking she had a chat to the girls.

After we had spent all our money, we adjourned to Crago Mill Cafe for lunch.  Mmmm.   Mmmmmm.  Some lovely things came out of the kitchen.

We also had the chance to have a wander around the new antique shop on site.  I was rather taken with this wash stand, as it was similar to one that has just found it’s way to our place.

There was lots of chatting and we had a little swap, “Make it, Bake it or Fake it”.

I was lucky enough to receive some sweet chilli sauce made by the lovely Kate, via Suze, beautifully presented with star and berries.

My gift was received by Anita.

It was a little knitted wash cloth and soap.  Fun to make.

Of course, no get together is complete without show and tell. I missed the start, (too busy talking).  These three were all made by Michelle from The Home Patch.  Just beautiful.

By then the afternoon was slipping away and everyone had to be on their way to the various parts of the state.

Peg and Dale said bye to their namesakes.  Who knows where they will turn up next.

The day passed so very quickly and was thoroughly enjoyable.  Now we will have to wait till Nundle in March to catch up again.  Thanks for a great day, ladies.
