Nelson Mini Symposium 2012

well what a fabulous week!!!
 Rowing Man and I toddled off last week on a road trip to Nelson, a 6-7 hour road trip... we left home about 10am Wed morning last week, and arrived in Nelson about 7pm... a few pit stops on the way.... we left a sunny Twizel but by the time we  got a bit further up the island the weather changed and it rained the whole way...
 here's Puddles doing her startled possum look!
 a good time to catch up with friends.... (bad hair day for me huh!)
 and fellow merchants
 from near and far
 we're a very happy bunch
 and love getting out to see you all
so that's it for another year....next mini-symposium in Ashburton in 2014, but National Symposium is in Taupo next year... will I see you there?

What can be better than going to see quilts and browse the booths, my kind of day. Is that car in the first pic covered in a quilty cover or painted to look like one? I can't really be sure but it appears it might be.
ps, your hair looks just fine!

Thats nice of you to share photos of all of your friends (note sarcasm regarding one photo!) I bet you took that one just for me and hopefully to give her the guilts. Okay stop, I am a nice person sorry! Looks like you and Tim would have had a ball, love the wee fiat.

Sorry for the drool I left on your shop window! I just missed you before the symposium, but your store looks packed with fabric goodness. We loved NZ so will be back again one day - see you then. The symposium looks like a wonderful gathering.
