Country Hart.......

I was up at sparrow fart yesterday to get the girls to the kennel ....they were happy to be going out and think going to the kennel is a great adventure ......but then when you are 2 (Lexi's birthday was today) and almost 2 (Rose turns 2 on Tuesday) everything is an adventure!

It was a cool start to the day....with the sun rising over the mist.......



.
Also with me for the early start were these two girls........although they refused to come out of the basket to check out the sunrise....said it was too cold....


And this is where we were going.......Country Hart in Port Pirie for a weekend of stitching with Helen Stubbings and Melissa Grant..........here are the girls with the lovely Abbie......


Didn't take long for Peg and Dale to get up close and personal with Helen......


Melissa about to impart her rose making knowlege to our table....


Robyn welcomed us all to her new shop (she hasn't moved in yet but decided to hold the classes there this weekend....) and as always she had done a brilliant job of making us feel welcome with goodie bags bulging with ....goodies! (who knew!!)  .......


...and fun decorations..............who knew a stack of embroidery hoops with a base and lid ....


........could make this useful container! 


Thanks to Robyn, Steve, Abbie and Sarah (and of course Helen and Melissa) for a wonderful weekend full of fun, food and great company.  The giveaways were plentiful and generous and I even got some stitching done.....(pics to follow).........although tonight I am a little concerned that my two erstwhile companions Peg and Dale are missing from my basket........yikes......where could they be???  I did see them loitering and whispering to each other in the vicinity of this suitcase......


........who does it belong to?  ..........................Watch this space!

'til next time..........................Lorraine

Beautiful scenic pictures, and it looks like you had a special time with friends.
Love that container from the sewing hoops! Now I know what to do with the ones I just couldn't throw away!

I like the hoops basket....how did she attach the top? I can't believe Miss Rose is almost 2 years old!

I love the idea of embroidery hoops being made into a container. It looks utterly sweet.

You really make the most of your weekends. I am such a slacker I consider it an achievement if I get out of my pyjamas!

What a gorgeous sunrise you photographed! I do believe those sort of views could make a very early riser out of me. So glad you're out having fun. It's the good stuff that life is all about. Yes?
