Natalie Bird Workshop

Today our Sunday Stitchers group got together for a much anticipated visit from Natalie Bird. 
It was a fabulous day. Don't you just love Natalie's quilt behind her? 
We had a choice of 2 gorgeous patterns and this is the one I chose to work on.
However I loved the second pattern very much and got that one too! (As you do!). 
Along with a few gorgeous pieces of fabric. The cute little stitchery was another gift from Natalie. 
Our day would not have been anywhere near as wonderful as it was without the tireless effort of our "fearless leader" Maree. She looks after us so well.
Maree cooked up a storm with cakes, muffins, (the best ever) chocolate brownies, cookies and cup cakes. She made our goody bags, name badges, organised the whole day, and raffles and prizes ... The list goes on.... Thank you so much Maree! 
We got to stitch all day, eat delicious  food, chat with each other and Natalie and have the best day.
Poor Natalie, she had to endure quite a few photographs!!!
A few of us had "Natalie" show and tells, mostly bags and pin cushions and a quilt.
 My progress at the end of the day. 
And what a fabulous day it was!!!!
