Are We There Yet?

Stitchers Dream Day Out ... here we come! (or went).

Last Saturday was all about the drive down to Highfields.  First things first, it was time for a delicious morning tea at Goomeri to fuel the body ... followed by some browsing and of course purchases at 2 lovely patchwork shops to fuel the mind and fabric stash.

Next some tourist type browsing around Nanango before enjoying a yummy lunch at Yarraman. More browsing at Crows Nest before finally arriving at the Village Green in Highfields for some more shopping. A quick check in at the motel and then a stroll up the road to ... browse some more. We did say it was all about the journey and not the destination. Too often we're always rushing to get to where we need to be and missing all the fun along the way.

Sunday was all about our "Stitchers Dream Day Out" hosted by The Quilters Angel. Not knowing what to expect, we weren't disappointed with the wonderful arrangement that greeted us once the curtain opened.

Our gift bags contained 6 patterns and 1 mystery project selected from 3 lovely designers; Gail Pan, Nikki Tervo and Natalie Bird who were on hand with demonstrations on the day. Here are the girls chatting with Gail.

These are the project kits we found in our gift bags along with some other great goodies.

Cuppas, yummy food, great company, making new friends, lots of chatting and stitching ... then it was all over and time to hit the road again and make our way home.

Thanks girls for the best weekend :o)
