Whilst Nundle holds a great deal of charm for me, as the place where i get to meet and catch up with all the lovely women who attend the girls day in the country (GDITC).

It is also a lovely little country town with alot of other charms as well........

 The whole township is surrounded by hills and it is like being nestled in a cozy little nest
(although i hear it gets pretty cold in winter)

Mount Misery restaurant, great food and a great place to catch up with friends

the mine shaft inside the Mount Misery restaurant, 

well worth a look and if your into knitting their wool is lovely
i have a beanie in the basket, in progress, for my youngest daughter

Odgers and McClelland, exchange store,
 i LOVE shopping here they have the most gorgeous kitchenware, fine tea s and lot's of other lovely bit's and pieces. A trip to Nundle would not be complete for me without 
 a shopping excursion to this shop,
 this year a scored some Linen tea towels, some pie weights and a wine bottle stopper, excellent for not letting the bubbles out of the Bubbly......
although a few very cheeky people in my life reckon i only go there to get a new broom......
of course it's the only way to fly........

a great place to sit and have a cuppa,

I would love to thank 
my Family, who had to proof read and approve the first post
and my friends 
Carly and Jo 

for all the positive comments and the welcome to the blogland.
i commented to Peg happy in quilting that i thought this was
 "the beginning of a whole new adventure"
her reply was  that " i had no idea....."

so to here's to new adventures

GDITC 2011

Last weekend i headed up to Nundle for the annual girls day in the country (GDITC). The girls day in the country is an annual event organised by Kerry from Cottage on the Hill. Kerry organises a lovely day in Nundle where stitchers from far and wide gather to spend the day together, chatting, stitching and eating very yummy food. The GDITC has a guest tutorer and this year we were fortunate to have Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched. This was my second year attending this fantastic day

this is one of the fabulous projects we were given the kit to make
a lovely little wallhanging with lots of supper cute stitcheries
can't wait to start this.......

Our second kit
A gorgeous little wool purse, made using the beautiful hand dyed wools created
by Anni's clever Husband.

These cute baskets were filled with luscious sweets for morning and afternooon tea
The diet was at risk.......

Anni's show and tell was fantastic

Chookyblue organised a brown paper bag swap, those whom choose to participate
made a project designed by Anni Downs of a certain size, placed it in a brown paper bag
with their name.
the bags were swapped and all whom participated received a gift
it was really lovely

i wish i could say i received this lovely keycase or that i made it
but i didn't my friend Alison
made this beautiful gift, much to the delight of it's new owner.
