I had a lovely day out yesterday with a whole bunch of like minded ladies and great friends. We spent the day in Toowoomba at the Stitchers Dream Day Out. It was fabulous! Our room and pretty tables and goodie bags .... how good does it look
Our guest designers for the day were Libby Richardson and Debbie McGee and I have made quite a few of their projects over the years, so I was really looking forward to this!
Our goodie bags were full of 5 lovely projects and patterns, fabrics and other sewing gifts.
Our projects for the day.... Debbie's stitchery pillow (it has a flap that opens up and holds your needles and scissors) and a butterfly needlecase, also the Sweet Memories Board... Libby's journal cover and fabric painted and appliqued teddy cushion.The fabrics are gorgeous.
Libby teaching us how to paint our teddy bear onto fabric... I loved this! Hmmm... I can see Noela, and Lynda and Marilyn too!!!
My progress so far.... One painted teddy, ready to cut out and applique...
And my teddy stitchery for the journal cover in gorgeous Cottage Garden thread "lavender:"
Lunch was a very healthy affair with chicken and salad wraps and fruit platters. It was great catching up with everyone!
Of course there were many, many gorgeous things to entice us to buy. I came home with a gorgeous bundle of Tilda fabrics and a beautiful glass trinket bowl.The sweet little Tilda peg is from Sandi as a lovely reminder of the wonderful day we all had together.
And I can never seem to resist anything with a bird on it these days!... I love this twine holder and birdy jar.
Well I had the best day.... because I had my lovely friends around me and we really enjoyed ourselves... And we weren't kicked out for laughing too much either!!! It was great to catch up with Fiona (Bubz Rugz) too who I haven't seen for ages.
Thank you girls for a wonderful day!
Oh yeah....you didn't really think I went all day eating just healthy stuff did you????
We had a lovely little stop at the Chocolate Shop at Highfields before going home, and I had this delicious coconut rough cheese cake. Perfect end to a perfect day!
Have a great week!
