"Stitching on the Lake"

An enjoyable day yesterday was spent at our 20th "Stitching on the Lake" day in Canberra with 65 creative and inspiring women !   Lots of fun and laughter, lots of food, lots of creativity and even some finished  projects to share .... all made for a wonderful day of friendship and frivolity!   Our Christmas themed projects were all set to tempt the ladies as they arrived ....



This cushion could be made into a lovely Christmas bag too ....


Christmas decorations to inspire ....


"May peace be your gift" .... this Christmas !


The hall all set up waiting for the ladies to arrive ....


Gift bags filled with kits to make the projects .... oh .... and lollies in the background !! 


We are always fortunate to have Najelle and Terrie from Hobbysew at Belconnen join us for some fantastic retail therapy throughout the day ....


Part of their display included our projects from our August retreat which we have now made into patterns for sale ....


The food, as always, was delicious and tempting ... savoury scones for morning tea ...


Italian lemon biscuits .... to die for ....


Flowers on the table .... I just love them because they are orange !! 


And here are Sylvia and I with Judy in the middle .... Judy has been to every one of the 20 "Stitching on the Lake" days we have had in Canberra .... always smiling and always bringing one or two or three of her gorgeous daughters along with her, and now bringing her granddaughter also !!  It is lovely to see the generations stitching together and be a special part of our Stitching Days !   Thankyou to Judy and all the other ladies who support our Stitching Days ... we always have fun planning them and enjoy creating lots of new things for you all to make !!    Next year will be our 10th Anniversary so we must put our thinking caps on for a special celebration next April !!!    Any ideas ???
