Welcome to Hagley Farm School!

Last weekend a bunch of us Tassie girls headed off for a bit of stitching R&R at Hagley Farm School. It also coincided with the Tasmanian Craft Fair at Deloraine. Unfortunately my batteries on my camera died so I can only show you a tour of the school farm. It's the perfect place to hold a retreat.
A warm welcome

Gardens contained lots of beautiful flowers, including vivid coloured irisis

Farmyard Friends - Alpaca

Cows (The school has it's own dairy)

Cutest donkeys 
Goats  
and Horses frolicking in the paddock.

Cathy, Leanne and Pauline were the other bloggers, the rest were all non-bloggers that stayed for the weekend, was lovely to catch up with them all again. We did a bit of stitching, Leanne even had a couple of finishes.
Some of us spent Saturday at the Tasmanina Craft Fair, it's a huge event and I'd recomment to any craft lover to visit. It was well run with free buses between venues and lots of entertainment. A must would be to take a bucket load of money!

Anyway it's be same place and same time again next year!

Love the pics Jo. All the different animals would even distract me from sewing & not much does that. Tracee xx

Thanks for the lovely pictures. This looks like a wonderful place to get away from the world. The animals are adorable. I would have taken the donkey home ;)
