CRAFTY: Joan Wil­son said she just sat back and ate choco­late for most of the week­end, but af­ter rais­ing nine kids she cer­tainly de­served the break. From Satur­day un­til Mon­day around 20 women from Biloela, Gin Gin, Ban­croft, Bil­bunda and Monto came to­gether for the Cal­ico Girly Night In, three days of solid arts and craft mak­ing. “It’s a lovely break from hus­bands and house­work,” quil­ter Rhonda Du­darko said. The ded­i­cated crafters didn’t mind rough­ing it for the­week­end and slept in tents, car­a­vans and even the backs of cars for the two nights. “I get much more of a sore back from stitch­ing all week­end than from sleep­ing in the car­a­van,” Lyn Tay­lor said. The Monto pro­ceeds went to Blue­care, and gave an ex­cel­lent chance for the our lo­cal ladies to take some well-de­served time for them­selves.

Peney Honey and Lyn Tay­lor said hav­ing an en­tire week­end to de­vote to craft mak­ing was like a hol­i­day.

Gin Gin's Geral­dine Matthew said the pump­kin soup Lyn Tay­lor made was world class, at the Cal­ico Girly Night In this week­end.

Ann Green, Lyn Tay­lor and Barbara Baker shared a laugh be­fore get­ting back to craft­ing.

Narelle Pailthorpe and Geral­dine Matthew spent Sun­day af­ter­noon patch­work­ing.

Joan McDon­ald chose knit­ting as her "bring your own craft".
