Stitching on the Lake in Canberra

We had another lovely day at "Stitching on the Lake" in Canberra yesterday ... lots of ladies enjoying a little bit of stitching and friendship and food ....  Lynne catered again and this is the delicious Aragon Salad we enjoyed for lunch ....




Scrumptious Anzac Kisses and yummy sandwiches for morning tea ....


Lots of stitching and chatting happening ...


The room was a buzz of stitching chatter ....


It is always so lovely to see generations of ladies stitching ... here are three generations ... Margaret, her daughter Danielle and Danielle's daughter Heidi ... and yes that is a tape measure around Heidi's neck ... she is learning early !! 


Did I mention the yummy chocolate cake with a dash of raspberry coulis and fresh cream for afternoon tea??


It's always great inspiration to have a show and tell session of projects made in previous stitching days ... here is the gorgeous cushion from last year's Stitching on the Lake !


An embroidered purse from earlier this year ....


Cute needle rolls from a while ago ....


Another needle roll ....


And Rosie's version of the embroidered sewing basket from the Stitching in the Hills Weekend Retreat ... personalised by Rosie with her name on it !!    I love all the buttons from "Up in Annie's Room" !!    We had another great day ladies ... thank you for stitching with us once again !!     We have a big week coming up in our house .... only 6 days till Ash and Tim are married ....
