Gathering - Part 1

What a day we had yesterday! I left home in the dark, and got home in the dark! Guest tutors for the day was Leanne and Rosalie as well as The Crow girls, Leonie and Deirdre. There was a table all set up for us blogger buddies to sit together. Back: Leanne, Roseanne, Liz and Vicki. Front: Me, Jo, Fee and Jan. It was SO nice to catch up with them all! And, Jan even traveled from Vic to visit us! It was lovely to finally meet her!
Here is Leanne showing Liz, Raz and Jan how to do perfect satin stitches. I look forward to seeing some perfect stitches from these girls now lol!

The Crow was set up SO beautifully with Rosalie and Leanne's gorgeous samples:

Here is Leanne's project for the day. A Needle Roll. How cute! Many of the girls chose to start this, and I can tell you that NOT much stitching was going on lol

Here is the inside of the roll - a place for needles at one side on the Dresden, a little bag for your thread, cotton and bits as well as a pocket at the other side. Cute don't you think?! Leanne says this will be part of a set!
Here is one of Rosalie's projects. A needle turn project for fussy cutting. Was quite cute too!

I didn't take too many pics, but I do have more to tell. I don't want to overload you today, so I shall pop back tomorrow to share.
