This time last week ..... Stitching in the Hills

This time last week we were well into our second full day of "Stitching in the Hills" !!!   There were lots of lovely finished projects which some of the ladies had bought along .... Jeanette has recently completed a class with Wendy Williams and she bought along this cute felt pincushion to show us ...  love the bright colours !

Jeanette (very productive) also had finished these lovely name tags from a previous stitching day for her and Rhonda !

Pam and Joanne had made lovely bags using the gorgeous batik fabrics ... beautiful designs!

Jeanette had also made these cute little felt birds from a recent Homespun magazine!

Ann had finished this journal/file cover from one of our previous stitching days ... and she was using it !

Trish had a lovely needlecase with beautiful embroidered flowers  .... completed  by none other than one of my needlework ladies, Margaret!   Margaret does such beautiful fine work and this needlecase is no exception!

This cute little turtle pincushion was very sweet!

Gwen's lovely embroidered crazy patchwork needlecase !

This is one of my favourite things to stitch .... a needleroll!   Same purpose as a pincushion but to be used for your needles when stitching a project  .... both stitched by Barbara (I think ??) .... the one on the right was from our last Stitching Day and the one on the left was from a pattern she had !!   Just gorgeous .... even though she couldn't bring herself to stick needles into them!!

Another project from a previous Stitching Day .... Brenda had made up her project into a lovely bag and attached the painted house button onto the front!    It looks lovely with the felt needlecase and scissor keeper beside it ... also from a previous Stitching Day!

And the back of Brenda's bag looks fantastic !

And Audrey has done such an amazing job on Anni Downs new bag from her new book!   It looks just lovely!    So many photos ... so many lovely finished projects .... such talented ladies .... such a lovely weekend at "Stitching in the Hills 2012"  !!
