Continuing our quilters escape into the Southern Highlands of NSW…we stopped at The Village Quilt Shop and Berrima Patchwork. I don’t know if we were getting tired but these shops were both more expensive and less helpful and friendly but it didn’t matter because the company was good.
We had a bit of time in Berrima so I had a nice lunch and some good advice at on the cup at the gumnut bakery and then a bit of a walk.
Eventually we all piled back onto the bus, a bit tired by now but we perked up when the final lucky dip happened on the way home. Thanks to all the stores that contributed goodies for the lucky dip, there was enough for everyone to get a prize and a piece of fabric as well. What a good haul!
After another couple of hours we made it back to Yass and were off the bus a bit travel weary but grinning, waving our good byes and heading home.
Well it was a fabulous trip. I now have the makings for the teddy bear quilt for the H Family, a few new friends, and some good memories to keep.
I want to say thanks to my quilting buddies for a great trip, and particularly to Kath who did a fabulous job organising it, keeping us busy, happy and roughly on time. I know there was months of preparation that went into putting the trip together, it showed, and it is much appreciated. Thanks again Kath.
That’s the end of the trip for this year, though watch out for the next post with more info including the itinerary and eventually I’ll get back to filling you in on projects (hexagons, tent maker panel, BAWARAO, QFO…there’s so much to talk about).
Happy stitching in the meantime.
