GDITC swap present finished.

Sorry, but this is all I can show for now.

GDITC stands for Girls Day in the Country. It is a day out organised by Kerry of Cottage on the Hill in Nundle, New South Wales. I went for the first time last year to keep my friend company on the road. She had been the previous year and the drive there and back is a bit long on your own. It is just over a 1200 km round trip. There is a guest tutor and it is Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched again this year. Yeah!
There is a large (and growing) contingent of bloggers. Many conversions to blogging happen at this meet. I was one. The bloggers organise a swap. Last year, it was something small that began with N for Nundle. So there were needlecases, notebooks and other nifty things. This year it is some thing small, made using an Anni Downs pattern.
I've finished mine with weeks to spare. Very unusual, as I'm usually doing it all at the last minute. I am a bit concerned I will forget to take it.
The other thing that will be big this year is a display of many of the Gardener's Journal quilts
made by the people on the GJ SAL blog. (See the button on my sidebar.) I am looking forward to seeing all the different versions of this quilt. I only have to quilt and bind mine. Only, she says! Maybe this will be what I'm doing at the last moment.
I have also joined OPAM 2011 -One Project A Month. I'm hoping by joining I'll be a bit more motivated. We'll see. ;-)

Take care everyone,

You are very organised. I haven't even thought about what to make yet. Too busy making sewing caddies for the flood victims and working so mine will be a last minute thing or you could always make me one.
