Girly Stitchy Road Trip!

Our brief glimpse of Spring has been blown away by freezing gale force south-westerlies here on our 'hill' ... In fact, we've just about been blown OFF the top of our 'hill'! :0) So when the going gets tough, the tough go on a girly, stitchy road trip! :0)

A contingent of our Friday Night Sit N Stitch gals hit the road today to drive down the 'hill' (before we got blown off!!) to the friendly little town of Esk, where Chriss had booked us a cosy little room to sit & stitch & enjoy yummy treats at the Nash Gallery & Cafe. I forgot to get a pic of the cafe, but it's in a gorgeous old Queenslander. We happily settled in for some stitchin' time ...


We had our own room to ourselves ... Maybe they thought it would help keep us out of trouble ... MAYBE!! :0) And we all DID do some stitching ... See?! Photographic evidence! :0) But after a while, we really needed some sustenance ... How fortunate that the menu offered some DEEEEEELICIOUS lunch options! :0)


MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!! It was then back to the stitching & chatting ... Oh! & quite a bit of laughing!! We even provided entertainment for other people visiting the cafe ... A lovely cyclist decided that maybe she needed to take up stitching since we made it look like so much fun. ;0)

And after expending all of that energy stitching & chatting ... It was time for afternoon tea. :0)


The lovely ladies of Nash do their own baking & the vanilla slice was FABULOUS!


Chriss thought so too! :0)


And Kerrie gave it the finger-lickin'-good thumbs up.


Sue enjoyed a slice of pear & pistachio torte.


Gail loved her vanilla slice, too ...


She enjoyed it a LOT!! Tee! Hee! Hee!

We even had a "Ta! Da!" Moment from Kerrie ...


Isn't this a cute quilt? Good job Kerrie! :0) 

It really was a wonderful way to spend a horrible windy day. Huge thanks to the friendly, helpful staff at the Nash Cafe for helping to make our mini sewing retreat such an enjoyable, relaxed day. If you're passing through Esk or looking for a great place to meet friends, I can highly recommend the Nash Gallery & Cafe.

And now I'm snuggled up in front of the fire under my trusty flannel blankie with my Beloved Geek Boy ... Not a bad way to spend a wild & windy Saturday. :0) I hope your weekend is as enjoyable as mine is shaping up to be. Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
KRIS

Oh that sounds like such fun! Our last trip up to Maryborough we went via Toowoomba and passed by the turnoff to Esk. At the time I thought it would have been nice to take time out to detour .......one day perhaps! Those vanilla slices look scrummy and awesom is that ladybird quilt!!!!
