A Gathering In The Barn 2013

Its been a busy week. Which lead to an even  busier weekend.
The Quilted Crows joined us here in the barn for a weekend full of fun,
 laughter, stitching, food, fabric and frivolity!! And a wine or 2!!
95 women joined us across the weekend.
Can a girl have too much fun???
Here are the 4 projects they made specially for the weekend.

And a close up of the sweet box Leonie made.

Here is Leonie and Deirdre giving a very funny
account of the trip from Hobart to the barn.

And showing us one of the projects.

Some of the girls hard at work.

Even a knee operation was not keeping Kim from attending.

This was the small project the girls worked on over the weekend.

It was wonderful to catch up with a few familiar faces.
Kim, Elyte, Marina, myself, and Sue-Anne in front.
Check out their blogs and this one too  for more photos.

There was lots of projects started. This one is from Ruby Red.

There were lovely red shoes to admire!!

Beautiful tins to covet!

Fabulous pin cushions!

Simply stunning hexagons that l wanted to keep.

Someone even had last years project with them.

There were friendship groups that came to stitch together.

And of course, plenty of shopping on offer.

The weekend was made even more fun because my 2 best friends
from Sydney flew down to help out.
We had an absolute blast!!
Thanks heaps Robyn and Sharon!!!
And of course, Leonie and Deirdre who brought all their yumminess
to the barn for us all to enjoy!!
Can't wait for next year!! 2014! 2014!
