Christmas Stitching on the Lake

We had a fabulous day at "Christmas Stitching on the Lake" in Canberra yesterday ....  over 80 ladies enjoyed stitching, chatting, eating and shopping !!!     We worked well into Friday evening setting up the hall and Najelle and Terrie from Hobbysew Belconnen also came and set up their gorgeous stall for which we thank them .... my bag came home a little heavier with some fabric etc. that I just had to have !!     This was Friday evening when set up was finally completed .....  We started to turn off the lights and realised how lovely all the red bags were with their gorgeous "Filled with Love" logo (thanks to Kikki K) ...



Saturday morning dawned bright and early for us and here is the scene before the ladies all arrived ..


And this is shortly after they arrived ....


Lots of chatting and laughter to be heard as they all stitched the day away ... the Hobbysew stall tempted way too many ladies !!


Here is Najelle re-stocking the fat quarter bundles which were walking out the door !


Sylvia and I .... in the quiet before the ladies all arrived ...


So many beautiful fabrics and treats to be tempted with at the stall ....



Lynne, our fabulous caterer, excelled again with some gorgeous delights during the day ... Australian Christmas Bush and Kangaroo Paw flowers and a lovely Christmas greeting on the catering table ..


Lynne and Sammi, her offsider, putting out a beautiful display for morning tea ...  thank you so much .... it was all beautiful ...



A small herd of reindeer were completed on one of the tables during the day !


Our good friend, Rose, came up from Melbourne to stitch the day away with us all ... always great fun to catch up with Rose ....


I saw lots of lovely sewing accessories throughout the day, but forgot to photograph all of them .. this was a cute needle case I saw which was made by one of the ladies ...


Celia and Diane also bought their gorgeous candles and paper art to tempt us ... so many delicious scents .... and all so beautifully presented .... 


So as the year closes on our Stitching Days, we want to thank all the ladies who have joined us throughout the year for our Retreat and Stitching Days ... we have had lots of fun together, shared good times (and some sad times) but mostly have been bought together by our love of needle and thread .... may you all enjoy a blessed and peaceful Christmas ... and may you find many hours of relaxing stitching times in the coming year ....  we will keep you posted about Stitching Days in 2015!!  xx
