Autumn Gathering part 2:

It was SO great to meet Natalie in person! She is so like her blog - bubbly & happy!! I was really looking forward to meeting her! We will have the pleasure of her company again at the Evandale Gathering in July! Here is a pic of Myself, Natalie and Cathy getting a demo on Needleturn:

I didn't show you yesterday the projects Natalie had on offer at the Gathering. Here they are, aren't they just gorgeous!! The colours are just SO girly!! A Pot Holder, Trivet and an Apron:

Fiona and Myself decided to make Natalie's Pot holder:

Here is my attempt on the needleturn applique cupcake that I did on the day, not too crash hot I must say (you can see my thread). I had already done a very small amount of needleturn before, but I just could not get the points or curves quite right, but with Natalie's help I think I am getting the hang of it:

Then Sunday I decided to have another go and make the other pocket and it turned out SO well!! I think I *love* needleturn!!

Oh, I must share this pic of the lovely Isabella, modeling Natalie's Apron for us (we did get heaps of silly shot of this, but we have told her we will be keeping them for future 'blackmail' lol)

So, as you can see, we all had a FANTASTIC time. If you would like to see more pics pop over to Cathy, Leanne, Sarah, Fiona they all have some great pics on their blogs at the moment.
