Good friends

Last week I was lucky enough to catch up with a wonderful group of ladies. The wonderful Chooky organized to get us together for a delightful gathering in Bathurst, NSW. I traveled to Orange ( about 5 hour drive ) and picked up my bestie, Kate and we headed to Bathurst for a "warm-up" for Saturday:) We had a great evening- thankyou Julia, aka little chicken, for inviting us to your home for nibbles, dinner and drinks....and laughs... It was very enjoyable!!

On Saturday we met up at The Home Patch, a truly beautiful shop, shopped up a storm and then went to lunch at the Crago Mill in Bathurst. It is a converted mill that now has an antique shop and cafĂ© enclosed inside this massive old building. Plenty of lovely food, drinks and laughs and good company was shared. We exchanged gifts in the bake it, make it or fake it present swap- thankyou Dale, my biccies  were yummy! A few quilts and crafty items were also displayed for show and tell...


Susan from Thimblestitch showed us this amazing quilt!!! Love it!!

This huge divine quilt was shown by Michelle..wow!

Annie, modelling Susans' hexagon bag/purse...we all wanted this one:)
And the last photo, taken when I got home on Sunday evening...ahh a cuppa tea and one of Dales' White Chocolate and Cranberry biscuits- yum. Had a great time, met some lovely people and enjoyed the company of such an amazing bunch of ladies. Can't wait to see you all again...xo Suze.
