a wee gathering

On the weekend I was lucky enough to be able to visit with some blogging friends, you may know them, Deb from The Angel and the Pukeko, Darlene from Stitching by the sea, and Shiree from Kiwifruit-shiree. I also got to meet two girls from Wellington, Colleen and Jackie who don't have blogs. These girls were on retreat, staying at Cherry Pie Quilts in Levin. (The link is on my side bar if you want to check them out), it's a great place to stay, as Cheryl (the owner) is a fabulous cook, and provides yummy morning and afternoon teas, and the lunch was delicious! However, she also runs a quilt store on the property and is on hand if you need help or advice on anything. What more could you want?
I went down to meet the girls and spend a day stitching with them. It was a really wierd feeling, I don't really know these girls, but yet I felt like I was catching up with old friends. It was lovely, and I guess another reason I have to thank my adventure in blogland!

Ok for the line-up. From left to right: Jackie from Wellington, yours truely, Colleen from Wellington, Shiree from Dunedin, Deb from Christchurch and Darlene from Christchurch.
You can check out their blogs for more photos.

Well I hope your week is progressing well!
Carole :)
