Morning Tea with the Nutters.

Yesterday saw me up bright & early ready to travel to Cleveland to met the "Nutters". My son kindly offered to be my driver & had me there at the designated time of 9:30. He's a good boy. :) Rang Joy to check i was at the right spot as i couldn't see any cars & having never been to the pub where we met because of the rain i wanted to be sure i was in the right place.
After confirming with Joy i walked around the back where i met Fee, Dawn & Vicki.
I think there was 21 ladies in all including myself & the Nutters. They came from the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast & areas in between. Pat was holidaying on the Gold Coast from Narromine & she came along to visit. Not all the ladies had blogs. Some of them are members of a craft forum. You can find a link for it on Vicki's blog.
Our Yummy morning tea. Oh look Jenny is lying down amongst all the food. Did you eat to much Jenny?
Vicki giving a speech. And the best news is next year they are meeting in Tasmania & having a retreat. Can't wait for that one.Starting to save my $$$$ already. :)

Our  lovely Nutters :Joy, Dawn, Fee holding Jenny & Vicki.


Fee gave us all this pretty bundle of fabrics. Thankyou again Fee. Then i got another surprise,

The lovely Vicki gave me this gorgeous pinwheel. Thankyou again Vicki.

Thanks again girls for the fabulous morning. It was so lovely to have met you all.

Happy Stitching

Hi Jeanette, I am sooo jealous! Sounds like a fantastic meet-up. I have been a member of the forum for a few years. have only managed to meet one lady, she was travelling around Australia with her 2 dogs!!
Lovely gifts too, I have just made one of those pinwheels, it was a mystery project on the forum! Hugs, Sandy. :)

I recently met a blogger in real life and I had an absolute ball, actually it's little sad we are not still together, I bet your time was just as good. Tassie sounds like a great plan.
