Favourite Things Friday - Road Trips with the Girls



What better way is there to have fun, than to pile into a car with a couple of friends and spend the weekend away sewing.  We missed out last year as the Loxton shop isn't there any more but this year we are heading to Port Pirie, to visit Robyn at Country Hart to have a weekend with Mellie and Rosalie in 2 weeks can't believe it is that close.  Even talked fast enough to have hubby believe that it is a semi business trip as I really should meet Robyn as she has been kind enough to invite me to be one of the designers for her POM.

Think I will be going to Haighes for a few muchies to take in the car on the way up.  There will be 3 of us which at times has been a dangerous number, but I think we all know each other well enough that everything is going to be fabulous.

The girls have also signed up for Inspired Stitches  but we won't be staying overnight anywhere for that one so this will be special.  I was Travel Co-ordinator this trip, and Helen has volunteered to drive which I am kind of happy about, bit unsure the drive up there (I'll be fine if we have a return trip).  Sue and I will be the 2 with the paper bags (we both suffer travel sickness, must remember to get the magic wrist bands).

I must say I am getting a bit excited, especially as we don't have to take our machines or any great wads of fabric which means that I can leave packing to the very last minute.  I know the next 2 weeks are going to drag but then I am going to be a bit busy anyway have a few projects in the pipeline for next month so I might even be up late most nights, so then again it might go super fast.

For more favourite things friday head on over to Mrs P for her lovely post.

I want to scream "Road Trip" and break out some beer and salty snacks (and I dont even drink beer)

Is there anything better than getting in the car and driving with your BFF's? And to have a crafty destination at the end of it sounds like bliss!

I can tell you're excited ....
