A Lovely Stitching Day

Saturday saw us heading off to Melbourne for a lovely day stitching with Gail Pan and Ramona Hermann.  We always look forward to these days and, of course, they fly by in a flash. 

These were two of my lovely stitching companions.

The two projects from Gail we worked on during the day were the lovely little bird/birdhouse wallhanging on the left and two versions of her couch sewing caddy. I'm doing mine in the mustard and red.

Ramona's projects were a lovely table centre and these handy little bags.  Two sizes but with lots of different labels you could stitch to attach, depending on the purpose you wanted the bag for.

I am progressing on my little birdhouse wallhanging so hope to be able to show you that soon. 

We all wanted this gorgeous bag Karen had made for Gail (using Gail's fabric range).

There was some lovely quilts for show and tell. I loved this one "Little Woolly Baskets".

And this was a block of the month using Gail's fabric. Loved it also.

This was a free pattern from Buttermilk Basin last year.  The same lady had made these  three quilts -
very productive and absolutely gorgeous all of them.

I have been having a bit of a buy up lately both from the workshop on Saturday an while we were away so will leave that for next time. Cheryl
