Hagley quilt camp part 1

I have had the best weekend with my quilting friends at our annual quilt camp to Hagley school farm. I haven't laughed and talked so much in ages. I did get plenty of sewing done which I was pleased about.The scenery is beautiful and the weather was perfect.

This was home for the weekend, it was a great place. 39 beds in total so we all had plenty of room as there was only 10 of us.



Cathy and Pauline were busy sewing most of yesterday, Pauline was finishing off an old project and Cathy was starting a new one. They had me in fits of laughter all day. Pauline you are such a card.





Sue (no blog) works for Pauline, she was busy working on a Piecemakers quilt which is going to be beautiful.







Alex was busy doing her stitching,









Look at these adorable faces, I went for a walk around the farm yesterday with my quilts to take a few pictures, these two came over to the gate to say hello.











Here is the donkey checking out my quilt. I wonder what he thinks??













The high light of the day was going for a ride on my friends new Motorbike. Isn't it a beauty. I didn't drive it though, I sat on the back. It was good fun.


I have lots more pics to share so I'll be back tomorrow, today I have to catch up on heaps of washing and finish some sewing. Its a public holiday here today which is nice.

Have a great day.
