Girls Stitch In!

Well last week-end I attended my first sewing retreat and I had a fab time.  I got to meet some new friends and we are all looking forward to catching up again in September and we have even organised a swap…how exciting!  The Girls Stitch In was held at Quilters Angel in Highfields…..and dispite the wet weather and mud we all had a great time.  I also got to meet two lovely designers…..Natalie Lymer from Cinderberry Stitches (Melbourne)  and Leslie McConnell from Faeries in My Garden (Shorncliffe).  It was very exciting to chat to these ladies and to put a face to designs….I look forward to finishing the projects sometime sooner than later!!!(I can dream!)   Here are a few photos from a great day….

My gift box we got with our patterns and materials. The table decorations were great also...bird cage with a candle inside!

Happy Days……Tanya
