FarmFest

We have an annual FarmFest just 3km away from where I live each year and Narelle from up North and her Hubz come down to it every year......

... so it is now our annual get together ....
... we met in blogland....


... we wandered around and purchased a few items (I got Hubz lovely bamboo socks but I didn't take a picture... socks are socks)

We did find a girlie place amongst big machines, dust, farm tools, big hats and tight jeans .... 

this cute little shed....


here is Narelle.... look at her shopping bag.... I meant to go back to that place and get one too!!!


inside the She Shed was lots of pretties....


... and we spotted a local celebrity trying to be incognito....


... Lee Kernighan, a local country singer was special guest for one of the stands
(you can take a guess at which one.... Lee is the local bloke ....)


... here are the groupies ....


It was such a fun few hours... I love this annual catch up... luckily this year we are having a bi-annual catch up as Narelle is coming to The Quilters Angel Stitching Day Out in September this year ....

I sent off this picture last week and it has arrived at Marina's... (it was her birthday).. luckily the glass survived the journey ....  I've always loved this saying and have made this before for pressies....


Righto, Gotta Go... the girls came for sewing here today and made a right mess of the place!

Sounds like a fantastic catch up and to find that oasis of gorgeousness in amongst all that manly stuff would have been pure bliss. I love this stitchery and have one traced out for me to be stitched up hopefully real soon :) Barb.

Hello Fiona,

It certainly was a great catch up with Narelle, no wonder you had a great time with a She Shed and Lee there too.

Happy days.
Bev.

marina said...

you too are such groupies lol. Hope you didn't throw any items of clothing at Lee?
looks like a great catch up. Love the she shed, reminds me of when patchwork shops have a corner for kids or men, to keep them occupied.
loving my stitchery! it is so beautiful. It's hanging around the lounge room a bit before it makes it to the sewing room.
