STITCHING ON THE LAKE - 10 YEAR CELEBRATION !!

Sylvia and I celebrated 10 years of our Stitching on the Lake Days in Canberra yesterday with a lovely group of women, some of whom have been joining us for the past 10 years!     It was a fabulous day of fun and friendship .... and we get to do it all again next Saturday 3rd May .... for another group of women !!   Beppi, Carol and Wendy all joined us for our very first day in April 2004 ....


We have always been supported at our Stitching Days by Hobbysew Belconnen and the lovely Najelle and Terrie did not disappoint with their beautiful display of fabulous things ....  we all went home a little poorer ....


Beautiful wools ....


Fabrics that just had to come home for my stash .....


Anni Downs pincushion .... just needed a little fabric for this too ....


Our projects for the day were an evening bag, sewing tools pouch, canvas work thimble pip, embroidered purse, embroidered book mark and sewing pouch ....


Beautiful flowers .....


Some amazing show and tell was shared by the ladies .... Rosie has finished off this lovely Bronwyn Hayes bag and filled it with lots of lovely embroidered Christmas decorations ....


Jan's lovely little pouch took my fancy ....


Doreen had finished off this beautiful little pincushion which was a kit she had purchased .... I have to have one of these !! 


She also showed us her amazing Sue Spargo block of the month she is working on ....


A completed needle case from our Stitching in the Hills Retreat was on display ......



A finished folder cover from our Retreat last year ...


Another journal cover ....


A cute and useful bag with lots of suffolk puffs made by Pam ...


Roni's gorgeous redwork cushion ... a variation on our Retreat cushion from 2 years ago ....



And Pat bought along some amazing stump work to show ....


Lots of clever ladies and lots of beautiful finishes from them all !!   As we are having our second day next Saturday I won't share photos of the amazing food etc. until after then .... something has to be a surprise for the ladies coming next week !!
