This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

~GDITC~ Saturday

On entering the Hall at Girls Day in the Country on Saturday we were greeted with a
Cottage on the Hill mug and a lovely centre piece of pink flowers in a vase





Our kit for the day


comprised of a Lynette Anderson Easter Table Topper



Here's Lynette showing off the Sampler piece



A few Hexagons made


I caught up with Suzie


It was a windy day and chairs were required to hold the doors open


Dear Shez came around to the tables
Hello Girls would anyone like some fruit........being banana sweets lol


Our table


Kate received my Swap Gift
We were each given a stitchery by Lynette to use and make something out of it
I made a Stitching Towel to use as a protector for the table to lay one's sewing work on



Dawnie was prepared to fight for it lol


A copy of the Stitchery available over here
Thank You Lynette


I received my Swap Gift from Shez
a little bag which is  holding my Hexagons
Thank You Shez......I love it and my Hexies are still sitting there


During the day I caught up with Lynette


Kate proudly showing her cushion


And group Bloggers pic to finish off the day


There was more Show-and-tell that evening
Here is Susan with her gorgeous quilt


JoJo even became involved and showed us her new poster
And more Show-and-tell

I'll be back with more pics of Sunday

Happy Stitching......Dzintra
