GDITC Saturday...........

Saturday started off grey and drizzly around but we enjoyed a nice walk...........
it was fresh but strangely the breeze was warm.............
a good breaky to start he day...........
Our gorgeous project was this from Bonnie Sullivan USA.............
new to me she is printing fabric ..........we appliqued a bit of wool on the spool, stitched over the leaves and added the buttons........done.........
I know sit down but I had a high achievement on the day...........
got my pincushion and needlebook done..............
Bonnie helped with the pincushion........it is attached to the lid of the container...........
great christmas decorations.........these are also preprinted patterns and you do a little applique of some wool and add a few stitches to smarten it up and it's done...........
lots of great friends to spend time with.........
my biggest partner in all things quilty Miss Jules and me.........
Kerri and Dawnie.........
Googy and Suzie..........
My table (back) Diddles, me, Lea aka Fairy Floss.......

she was an absolute delight to have as a tutor........

Thanks heaps to Kerry for organising 10 years of amazing workshops.......by chance it has become a melting pot of bloggers from 3 states.......all with the one amazing connection to blogging and stitching..........I was so so so sad to hear it was to be our last Girls Day In The Country............
the bloggy girls............

  3. Now this is a bit spooky; only five minutes ago I saw that Bonnie is coming to my LQS in September and I was wondering if I should sign up for it. I love what you've made; is the box (with the bird on it) also part of it? Just my cup of tea!! xx

  4. Love, love, love the fabric you used for the needle book. LOVE it!
    It's too bad this was your last gathering. Maybe other arrangements can be made for the future.
