a lovely day ........ stitching@bodalla !!

What a lovely way to spend a Saturday ..... teaching a small group of ladies at our first "stitching @ bodalla"  day!!    Bodalla is way down south of where I live, but I have been stitching with these ladies for a long time now so it was an enjoyable trip down south to catch up with them all again!  What started out as a very chilly early morning in the Bodalla Hall turned into a fun day of stitching and stories, food and fun!!    We made the projects from our last "Stitching on the Lake" day in Canberra !!  This wasn't a project but was a gorgeous counted thread needle case which Maria had made and bought along for "show and tell" !

It's always nice to see finished off pieces from our previous stitching days .... a lovely canvas work pincushion and stitched bag!

Enjoying their stitching (or swapping stories) were Marie, Bev and Jan !

Good friends Ros and Chris happily stitching the day away!

Heads down and working hard were Maria and Jenny!

What a lovely group of friends to stitch with .... thanks for such an enjoyable day ladies .... Karel, Maria, Jenny, Beris, Meg, Ros, Chris, Marie, Bev, Bess, Helen and Jan!!

Bev was stitching up a storm under her embroidery light!

Karel's canvas work in progress on the day!

And here she is tracing another of the projects!

It was lovely to see this table runner from a previous "Stitching at the Bay" day !

And another version of the table runner, canvas work pincushion and little felt needlecase and scissor keeper!

And Maria made the ends of her table runner design into useful bags with a lovely stitched pocket ... great idea!   I did take lots of photos and will share more of the next day or so!    And yes Karel .... happy to do it all again next year!!
