"Friends in Stitches" Melbourne .....

This week has been pretty busy and full and I haven't yet shared my photos of my wonderful day at "Friends in Stitches" in Melbourne last Saturday!   Three lovely friends - Leanne Beasley, Natalie Lymer and Gail Pan (a fellow teacher on the Needlework Cruise next year) got together and organised "Friends in Stitches" for lots of very lucky ladies ...and we had such a lovely day !!    This is the table of ladies I shared with (and Sandy in the background) .... some fellow bloggers and friends !

Our three teachers Gail, Leanne and Natalie explaining their projects for the day !

There were lots of beautiful pieces on display from each of the teachers !  These are some of Natalies !

And some of Leannes!

And Gails!

The food was fantastic !

Yes ... there was fruit too !

This group of friends had made t-shirts to wear with words all over that covered the weekend with Friends in Stitches !  Great fun ladies !

And we were very spoilt to each receive a beautiful pendant gift !

And this is the room full of ladies stitching away throughout the day!  It was a great day and I'm looking forward to the next one!   

But for now .... I'm off to Canberra as Sylvia and I have our own Retreat weekend "Stitching in the Hills" this weekend in the hills north of Canberra ... we have kits up to our necks and projects galore to keep the ladies entertained and busy throughout the weekend!   Looking forward to sharing some photos of that with you after the weekend!   Enjoy your weekend whatever you may be doing!   I know we will be having some fun!!   Travel safely ladies !!
