Grand Day Out

Last Saturday nine of us loaded into a mini bus and off we went to a stitching retreat at Monbulk, it was organised by Lisa of Fig'N'Berry, also there was Marg Low.
Here are the kids in the back seats....

our wonderful driver.....Anette....

...we managed to surprise Shez we knew she was going, but she didn't know we were going!! Tee Hee!!! Looks like some serious conversation between Shez and Tania....

finding our places...goodie bags on the table....

some of the beautiful Fig'N'Berry quilts and table runners on display.....


Anette working away.....

We had the best day, were well driven - thankyou Anette, had lots of laughter and chat and caught up with good friends and got some stitching done! And there was so much food, we had to take doggie bags home!! Thank you ladies for a fantastic day!
