I do love our annual Sewjourn weekend; we were trying to work out how many years it is that we’ve been going and I think it’s probably about 12 or 13, and we still love it!
Friday morning we set off and met up at Millrose for a wee shop, a catch up with Sue and Lizzie, and lunch at the cafe next door, then a drive further up the highway to Kyneton and Alice in Fabricland for another wee shop, a chat with the lovely Fiona and the delightful surprise of seeing Irene and her friend Jen with a sneak peek at Irene’s new BOM (out soon-ish) which is, as you would expect, GorGeous!
We finally made it to Sewjourn and settled in for a cuppa before heading off to the pub for dinner.
It was freezing the next morning with frost on the groundbut clear blue skies, belying a bitterly cold windthis would have been the perfect spot to sit, except for that pesky breezewe had a little look at some of our purchases, oohing and aahing over fabrics not seen but bought by others – as you do!you know we will have enjoyed lots of yummy food, and here’s a sample of our nibbleswith frequent trips back to the house (I was on lunch duty on Saturday) I took the opportunity to take some pics of the gardenSunday morning was not so cold and bright skies again with an even stronger wind blowing away some early morning fogMonday was overcast and so cold, we were glad to get to Gisborne and say hello and warm up with a laugh with Mary and yet another wee shop at Patch ‘n Quilt. A quick cuppa at the cafe next door and then home – all too soon it was over! Roll on next year!
I’ll be back with all the sewing stuff tomorrow!
