Stitching on the Lake

It has been over a week since I posted our Stitching on the Lake projects!  I had been told to rest for a week and get better!! So that's what I did!!   I'm pleased to report I was well enough to attend our Stitching on the Lake day in Canberra yesterday!   As always, we had a wonderful day of stitching and friendships - with more than a dash of food!!!    I can't believe I took no photos of the beautiful food created by Maree and Lynne!!  I'll remember to have my camera on hand for next weekend - the food was exquisite!!   Here is the room all set up before the ladies arrived - Christmas trees, red bags full of projects, Christmas hanging decoration and the anticipation of a great day!!

A couple of our projects - hexagon decorations!

Felt decoration, cross stitch decoration and a tiny little Christmas Santa!

Canvas work decoration and a beautiful embroidered cushion!   Is that two partridges in a very ornate pear tree!!

Another view of the room - ready and waiting for the ladies to arrive!

And finally ... here they are hard at work!!

Having fun and all working hard on their projects!

Sylvia having a chat with Margaret and daughter Danielle!

They do look busy don't they??

More happy faces!

Sue and Lee quietly stitching and enjoying their "time out"!!

Pene and Shirley taking a break from stitching for a photo!!

Stella couldn't drag herself away from her stitching ... so smiled as she worked!!

Penny (in the front of photo) travelled all the way from England to join us for Stitching on the Lake!! 
She wins the prize for coming the furthest distance for a stitching day!!

A room full of busy ladies!

Najelle from Hobbysew at Belconnen bought a lovely stall to tempt us!!   And tempted we were!! 

Some "works in progress" !!

And hexagon decorations in progress!!   A great day was had by all!!  We look forward to doing it all again next Saturday at the second Stitching on the Lake day in Canberra!!
