Northampton trip

My sewing sisters and I departed for Northampton on Friday morning at 11 am.  Due to a fire on the Brand Hwy, we detoured via Three Springs and Mingenew which added over anhour to our trip.  We finally arrived at 7.30 pm.  Stayed in a wonderful B & B Called the Ostrich Farm, plenty of room for the five of us.
Saturday morning we headed downtown, the quilts were amazing, loved the felting group, and the lace making just left us gobsmacked.  Great mango smoothies.  Ella came down from Kalbarri and bought my adorable grandson with her, so I could have lots of cuddles, he is just edible.  Cath and Pete and kids were on their way home after a holiday at Red Bluff, so also caught up with them.  Sadly it really was all over by 3.30.  I would have thought , for such an enormous effort, it could have run over 2 days, maybe with workshops onthe next day, or something like that.  Nevertheless, great weekend away with the girls, came back with a few ideas which is always good.
