Back from Bendi

Bendigo 2015 trip ........... What a great time with a bunch of like minded ladies from one of the
Ravelry groups ....... Last year was my first time going to the Bendigo Wool Show weekend and it was soooo much fun, I just had to go again this year!  
It's only about 2-3 hrs drive by car from here and since DD is in Melbourne, she decided to catch the train up to Bendigo to meet me so we could have a mother / daughter day .......


And I was able to give her the rainbow ripple to go home with ........ I think she is pretty happy with it ......




I had seen on a post that if you wore bunny ears to the ixchell stall the bunny lady would give you a nice little goodie bag filled with bunny fibre and fun items.... I mentioned this to DD and with just a nights notice she made two of us up some Bunny Ears to wear into the show.....  And this is what was in the goodie bag ...... some bunny fibre, bunny yarn, lollies , a bunny button and a 10% discount for an online purchase!! What a great thankyou!!

I visited the Bendigo Woollen mills as well since I'm going to need extra yarn for the blanket I'm in the process of figuring out for our bed .......I'll share more if that with you in another post

So here is my yarnie goodness harvest from Bendi this year!!! So many lovely yarns and lots of projects queued as well as the beginnings of some ideas brewing.........

I am green with envy Sharm - I have been wanting to go to the Wool and Sheep Show for many years - I think I will have to make a concerted effort next year!! I do love that rainbow blanket - it just makes me smile each time I see it!! The Bunny bag is great but not as impressive as the swag of goodies you bought while you were there!! I can just imagine the ideas swirling around in your mind!!

That sounds like my favourite kind of day out. I utterly love the rainbow blanket. It must have taken ages to make

What a nice way to spend the day with your daughter! Beautiful blanket you have wrapped her in and lovely new colors you have come home with. Sounds like you both had a wonderful time. - Karen

I know someone who went there on Friday. She had a great day. Hope you really enjoyed yourself. It's only an hours drive for me. Maybe next time you go there we could meet up for a cuppa
