Stitching on the Bay

Here is Jenny's felt bird completed at the end of the day!

Sylvia and I in front of the "Cute as a Button" stand!

We were fortunate to have Rebecca from "Cute as a Button" come down from Canberra and bring all her lovely fabrics and patterns for us to drool over and ultimately purchase!   Thanks Rebecca!  
It is always lovely to see everyone's sewing accessories on these stitching days.   There are always lovely pincushions and sewing bags and scissor fobs to be seen everywhere!   This was Karel's lovely little sewing bag - adorned with three dimensional Australian wildflowers!   Gorgeous work Karel!  As you can see, we had a lovely day and are looking forwarding to doing it all again in mid 2011!

  7. I really enjoy visiting your blog. I really enjoyed see all your pics from Stitching at the Bay. I absolutely loved the birdie, sooo very cute. I also loved the Aussie flower small quilt. Loved it. I have always wanted to create a wee quilt with Aussie flowers and this one was very inspiring. Hugs Judy

  8. Fiona: Jenny's bird is adorable, what a great addition to her tree, Karel's bags is so beautiful, nice work ladies, you are lucky to have a shop owner come to you with her goods lucky very lucky.

  9. Your Stitching on the Bay posts sound like you had a great time! I've not been to any type of retreat yet but hope to fix that next year.

  10. Just stopping by to say Hello from eastern Canada. I visit your Blog often, (but have not taken the time to comment) and am also enjoying hopping around to many you have listed on your sidebar. Love seeing your work and have really enjoyed your Stitching on the Bay posts. I love your Biscornus too....

  11. Hi. I love your work, it seems that you australians uses more colors in your needlework and I love bright colors. Is the bird a pattern or a private design?
    Cheers Ida
