We arrived at the Hall with a lovely Calico bag full of goodies for our Annie Downs project.
It was coupled with a lovely Mug so that we could keep the palette wet for all the chatting  that was to be done.

Kerry and her girls had done a superb job of decorating the tables, and our morning tea was already in the centre of the table hidden inside the calico.  the chairs also decorated beautifully.  Well done Kerry - it looked fantastic.

It wasnt long before everyone was stitching and chatting
Everyone was really engrossed with what they were to stitch.
This is one of the lovely projects that we were to complete.
I failed miserably as only manged to have one thing sewn on, however a lot of the girls did finish and did some lovely variations which I am sure you will see on their posts.
This was all the swap items that some of us participated in which was to be an "Annie" item.
Some great work here and everyone was pleased with their goods they received.

I received a lovely Pincusion fromViv on a Cotton Reel.
Viv if you read this, please send me your blog so that I can link you.
It is always too hard to get everyone together for a pic, so some of us took a photo of the girls taking a picture - a great way to capture them.

We were on Table 6 and I have lovely Fiona next to me
and Suzie on the other side
and alongside her the lovely Peg
Annie flitted about the tables doing some demonstations on various things.
Here she is fitting the clasp t the finished product.
We stayed in the local Cabins which were just lovely and as you can see in the distance there was much talking and meeting goin on.
At the end of the day it is nice to take a pic of the things I collected and purchased on the day.
alway a great selection of Felts on display with any Annie workshop.

A great day - thanks to so many.
Kerry for organising and inviting
and al the bloggers who make the drive worthwhile to catch up and meet in person.

Thanks for the friendship.

p.s.  there are some great GJ quilt which were finished and I will post about that soon.
Mine included - finally finsihed - yipeeee!!!!!!
