More of "Stitching on the Lake"

Sharing a little more of our "Stitching on the Lake" day in Canberra last Saturday ..... and Beth managed to finish off her little felt Santa on the day and here he is resting up against her finished embroidered cushion from our "Stitching in the Hills" Retreat in August ... well done Beth!

We were very fortunate to have Hobbysew from Belconnen with us for the day ... lots of successful shopping done by lots of ladies (including me!!) 

Lots of tempting fabrics and designs here ....

Tiny pieces cut out in the process of making the Christmas bunting ..

This beautiful basket full of French General fabrics was a little depleted by the end of the day !

A lovely finish by Laurelle from our previous stitching day .... beautifully stitched ...

Anne's version of our embroidered sewing basket from the Retreat in August ...

Jo bought along this gorgeous quilt for show and tell ... very inspiring ... a gorgeous Vivian Robinson design I think ...

Another finished cushion from the Retreat ....

And another .... 

And another lovely show and tell from Beth ... this is a japanese inspired block holder ... very cute !!
