Let's Get Stitched 2015

This was my first time to join the girls at the "Let's Get Stitched" and I wasn't  disappointed, what fantastic fun it was  to be in this group.
Here are the "Nutter's " and our 2 secret designers.

Michelle.. Vicki.. Joy.. Fee..Dawn and the very secretive Teresa.
4 Nutter's in the middle.


I just liked this photo, looking relaxed I think.


I had so much fun with this lot too.... my roomies....
Norreen.. Narelle..Teresa..Sandi.


My photos are a bit muddled up so in no special order...
these are purchases made on our bus trip and prizes at games night.


Patterns from the designers that were in our goodie bags.


These 2 don't look naughty do they ?  But they are trust me.


We had to make a name badge for a secret partner and just look at this beauty made for me by Narelle.....
it's soooo me and I love it.....Thank you Narelle.


I made this badge for Sandi and as you all know she has a cat "Maci" and I knew she would miss her soooo much ..... thought this badge might make her happy.


Well games night...... oh my goodness was this funny.....
I was lucky (not) to get to bust a balloon by sitting on it and then having to do the "poise" dance....
I know you don't get it but always remember that what happens on retreats stay on retreats and that's all I have to say about that other than to say...... embarrassing moment and yes I am blowing my nose on a poise pad..... unused of course.


Christine teaching me the "poise" dance.....


Narelle trying to bust a balloon.... it was much harder to bust them than I had imagined.


Swap table


Sunday was stitching day and we had to do a sensible photo......
hmmmm I tried but these 2 didn't as you can see.


Now we are behaving....


Girls paying attention to the designers showing their projects. 


We all went to dinner on Saturday night and to our surprise at the 
"Naked Whisky Bar" we were confronted with walls covered in old nude photos....

you can imagine the laughter that went on.....




Love these girls..... we only met Narelle this weekend but we all felt as though we had known her forever and its such a pity that she lives sooooo far away from us but we look forward to seeing her again in the future.


Maybe these luscious ladies might be us in a past life..... lol....

What do you think ?


So I needed a stiff drink..... it was yum too.


You all know this lady....Shez .... I think she would have won a prize for taking the most photos over the weekend...... I have have pinched quite a few photos so thanks to everyone who took such great shots.


Saturday was a free day to do just what ever we wanted so we went to the Markets at South Bank and found a great cafe "Flowers" the food was fantastic.....

Playing in the garden....


My lunch


Sandi


Teresa


Nor and Relle


 Paparazzi is everywhere..... even in the plants.


 Great view of the shop from upstairs in the cafe.


My photos are out of order but hopefully they tell a story for you.....
What a group, thank you ladies for a fun time....
no I'm not going to name everyone.


I had the best time and I hope to see all the wonderful ladies again soon.

Farewell to 2015 Let's Get Stitched......
