Sydney Miniatures Fair - May 2014

What a whirl-wind it has been for us - Sydney for 2 weekends in a row!!  I'm absolutely exhausted - but have had a most wonderful time.  The Sydney Fair was fun - as usual.  We were kept busy and it's always so nice to catch up with others of like mind!

Courtyard pics:
I promised pics of the courtyards worked on the previous weekend and here I will show you the ones that came to Sydney to be displayed.

On the left by Christine Kenny.  I'm sure she will send me pics when she finishes this!!  On the right, by Kaye Payne.  Well done Kaye!

On the left by Kay O'Connor and on the right by Yvonne McSwann.  Great work ladies!

By Elizabeth Barnes - who opted for the extended version!

Back view of Elizabeth's courtyard.  Great work for getting it all done Queen Lizzy!

I was so thrilled with the outcome of this workshop.  Every courtyard has a character all of it's own. Super work - everyone!!

Sydney Show 2014
Nambucca Valley Miniatures Group usually takes a display to the show and this year we did.....

Our sheds - so pleased - and they all turned out so differently!

Willunga was there - all lights working!!

My Apothecary room box.  I think it's been away from home for over 2 years, so I was very happy to see it again!!

The people you run into!!  Peter and Miriam from Ulmarra, who are members of the Nambucca Valley Miniatures Group!

Some general snaps taken at random!

Not much left - which means get back to work for me!!

Wow - I seem to have been going on and on here - but never mind.  I shall stop now and leave you all in peace.  I hope everyone is keeping well out there in blog land - take care all.

Italian Courtyard Workshop - Linnwood House - Anzac Weekend 2014

It certainly was a blast for me - I had such a good time, and I hope everyone attending did likewise!!

Linnwood house was the setting - and was it just beautiful!

Plenty of room to move around - here we have just set up ready to go!

As you can see - lunch was catered superbly by Nora-Lee and Thelma!  Thanks so much ladies - you did a wonderful job - the food was yummy!

Participants a bit tardy getting to the lunch table - too busy working!  hahaha!

Everyone working hard!

Christine (all the way from Mackay in North Queensland) working hard!

Yvonne McSwan's work in progress!  Doing well!

We were in such a rush at the end of it all - we didn't get a group photo!  Won't make that mistake ever again - group photo on the first day is the order of progress!!! 

Our dinner get-together on Saturday night - good food, excellent company!

My next posting will show the work done by all the wonderful participants.
