Still on a High

after a most wonderful day on Saturday at the Stitching Soiree I attended with Lisa from FignBerry Creations,  Jennifer Knol and yes, Vivian from Vivian's Creations managed to attend despite being very ill these past few months. And Karen from Mrs Martins Quilt Shop was there with a wonderful shop.It was one of the best days I have attended, and we were thoroughly spoilt with so many new patterns and kits to play with over the next few weeks.  

And I got to meet Julie, my partner in the Let's Celebrate swap with Mrs Martins. Was so lovely to meet you Julie.

These were the goodie bags that met us on our arrival.
Patterns from Jennifer - these were amazing - top right is a needleturned cushion (large I might add), and the quilt is a paper pieced dresden plate. The birdie purse we received a kit to work on on the day if we wanted.
This little tag from Viv was just so gorgeous - I traced it straight away ready to stitch. Viv had designed this and Karen stitched it for her and wrote up the pattern. Also from Viv was this very cute bag and I will be making this one very soon.
These sewing accessories  from Lisa I just loved, and so different from the usual sewing accessories I love to sew. And they came pre-printed ready to start stitching straight away. The little pocket holds a small cutting board, pencil case to match and a lovely big pincushion.
More yummy patterns from Lisa - I loved them both, and will certainly be making both really soon.


Mrs Martins had done some gorgeous kits up for some of the projects - loved the colors in this one
And last from the goodie bag were sewing bits and pieces - the cutting board will fit in the little pocket I'm making.

Lots more photos, but I'm sure I have overwhelmed you enough today. Will show you my purchases during the week.  Mmm - this is my 99th post.  Cheryl
