ROADTRIP to Nundle NSW - JULY 2016

Sometimes, you just need to disconnect and enjoy your own company.... and this is what I did leaving my home at 4.30 am for a solo 5 hour road trip. Heading out into Country NSW for a girls weekend away in Nundle, for a retreat with Kerry at Cottage on the Hill. This was my first time attending a retreat at Kerry's besides the Girls Day in the Country Events I have attended.

Knowing that I could leave extra early and stop for a little girly fix up (read beauty indulgence) in Quirindi at The Beauty room by Kate. I was well and truly spoilt after arriving at 9.30am and leaving about 12.30. Kate had seen I was waxed, plucked and massaged oh and I even had a fantastic lash lift - yep spoilt.

I kind of invited myself along after hearing Chooky talk about it. Thanks Chooky for letting me come and crash the weekend with you and your friends.

Kerry really has a great plan and makes the weekend so relaxed. After checking into the caravan park, it was up to the cottage to select the quilt design and fabrics.... tada after some deliberation.

it got so cold it was extra frosty in the mornings, such is the little crystals of bliss.

Then it was sewing, eating, sewing, chatting, sewing, eating, chatting repeat repeat repeat... for 2 whole days.

The girls and their progress... amazing how similar but how different we all ended up.

The above is the original Kerry Quilt that I chose to work on...and quilt top complete... on my return home.
