Arrived for a hens weekend and went home as trainee quilters.

It was Friday afternoon when the girls started to arrive, 8 in total ready for a good time.
They were here for a hens weekend and oh what a weekend it was.
Put a whole new meaning to eat drink and be merry.
Rachael is getting married in a few weeks and they were here to celebrate.
After a trip to the Eumundi markets and some retail therapy on Saturday morning they  settled in for the afternoon.
Here is what was left.
Not much.
Then they all tried their hand at being budding designers.
They had 32 rolls of toilet paper and they had to make the ideal wedding dress.
It was very funny.
Here are the three brides in their beautiful frocks.
Not sure that they would impress any groom though.
Here they are again as night falls getting ready to go for dinner.
The bride to be made some fantastic cocktails, not one that I was familiar with but I am here to tell you they were good.
They went into town for dinner and weren’t seen again till morning.
Over the course of the weekend we had a few discussions about quilting and the girls admired some of my quilts. By this stage they all wanted to check out the office. One thing lead to another and the next thing five of them were gathered around the table having a patchwork lesson.
They went home not long after quite thrilled with their efforts as budding new patchworkers in training.
I did tell them that it was very addictive but I am not sure they believed me till they got started.
Time now to clean up and get ready for the next group of ladies to arrive.
Patchworkers this time for a 5 day retreat.
How lucky am I to be able to work in an industry that I love in a very beautiful part of the world.
I count my blessings everyday.

Till next time
