Sewing day out!!

I have had the most awesome day, spent at Evandale at a sewing gathering!! Organised by the lovely Christine! She did an amazing job at organising everything for us, for such a relaxing day.....

Guest tutors for the day were Marg Low, Libby Richardson and the Blue Willow Cottage Gals! All beautiful, talented ladies! I didn't take many pics due to the copyright issues - here is a pic of Marg Low's stand...... GORGEOUS don't you think?!



There was quite a few projects for the day, I totally *loved* theses little needle cases..... all using felt! On the way home, we stopped off at Spotlight to grab a supply of felt to have a play at home! See the little stitcheries in the frame.... That's one of the two projects I had a play with:

Here is a close up of the felt needle cases by Marg Low:

There were a few of us Bloggers there, and had reserved a table together. Chatting among ourselves a couple of weeks ago, we decided to do a Xmas Tree Ornie Swap on the day......



I was VERY pleased with the Ornie I received, a Rosalie Quinlan design (made by Leanne)! Such beautiful stitching! THANKYOU Leanne, I love it!

Here is mine wrapped and ready to go........


And, here is what I made...... A Christine Book design. This is actually a bigger Ornie, but I re-sized it to suit! And who should have received it, Leanne lol!


I do have other pics to share, I won one of the Lucky Door Prizes and was TOTALLY GOBSMACKED (totally, totally gobsmacked!!) at what I received (Leanne won a Lucky Door Prize too, you can check out what she received on her blog)....... I am going to keep you in suspense until tomorrow! Cruel aren't I? lol! If you want to see more pics of the day, pop over to my lovely Blogger Buddies whom I spent the most beautiful day with, it was great catching up with them all: Roseanne, Leanne, Lisa, Jane, Cathy & Marina!
Cya then

Sounds like a fun day. Marg's stand looks wonderful .. I've admired her work for quite a while now. Love the fabrics she uses. The ornies look great ... you've been busy girls.
