Sadly the "City Girls" couldn't attend this time as they were on a retreat, but Tracee came up with an idea of how we could take them with us!!
and we had them photo bombing all over the place!! I am sure Marina, Elyte, Annie, Ann and Robyn felt quite at home!!
Everyone enjoyed opening their swap parcels - there was loads to oohhh and aahhh over!
And as usual the paparazzi was in action!!
It was lovely to meet Helen in the flesh, so to speak, I have followed her blog for a while - she is as lovely in person as she is one her blog! Helen was blown away by the swap she received from Shez, such beautiful stitcheries!
These are the three sewing set items I received, they are from Anne, I LOVE purple so they are perfect for me! There is a thread catcher, pin cushion and block keeper! Just beautiful!
Evidence that Tania did a little shopping! And some stitching!
The happy gathering.
Tracee getting to some stitching just before lunch!
Some serious menu viewing going on here - what to have for lunch!! The "City Girls" came for lunch too!
Yes Shez!!!! The old me taking a photo of you taking a photo of me trick!!! Lol!
There she is a bit fuzzy because I was giggling while trying to take a photo, Shez is such a lovely lady, I think we all start smiling when we see her - I know I do!! She is a happiness fairy - must remember to take her a set of wings next time!! Lol!!
Tania enjoying her lamb pie for lunch - very nice I was told, meanwhile I was tucking in to a bowl of chips! Yum!!
Here are the "City Girls" busily checking out the swaps for the day,
Marg stitching on her bag- looking forward to seeing this one finished. No pressure though Marg!!
And the lovely Shez, you could not ask for a better friend!
And I have pinched photos from Shez's blog when we decided to photo bomb a photo session - I hope you don't mind Shez!!
We did let you get your group photo eventually!! Lol!! Looking at this makes me laugh !!
Another great meet up! Thank you all for a wonderful day!
