More from our Weekend Workshop

I did actually manage a bit of stitching at the workshop with Gail Pan last Saturday.  Bit hard to believe - there was lots of chatting going on.  I took a needleturn project of Gail's to work on and this was my progress for the day -

My friend Sandy had packed a stitchery to trace and stitch, but alas no lightbox.  Well wasn't that lucky - I had packed a stitchery as well, so she worked on my stitchery for me -
Sorry bit hard to see, but a redwork sampler of Gail's.

This was our gorgeous goody bag - a fat 1/8th of pretty green fabric, some binding clips, a variegated DMC, so yummy chocolate and two small patterns.

Did I mention there was a shop? Well a few goodies found their way home with me.  A very cute stitchery called "Wednesday's Blooms" which was a kit with fabric and thread - very reasonably priced, and another lovely pattern for a wool tablemat.
And some fabric.  The fat quarters at the front are all for Gail's new block of the month I am stitching, which will end up at the shop where I work for now, but will come to live at my place eventually. They also had these great $6 scrap bags crammed full of about a dozen matching fabrics - perfect for applique, scrap quilts, etc but I bought some to use in my needleturn project above to give me some extra choices.  And I love pincushions, and couldn't resist the one top right which holds your reel of cotton and had a little doggie pin cushion attached.  Very pleased with my day and my purchases.  Cheryl
