we head yet another wonderful day of stitching and sharing on Sunday here in Hobart.

As always my wonderful friend Jo added all of the special touches, this time aided by Judy – another one of my wonderful team who keep me on track..

One day I think Jo will be an event organiser or decorator…http://www.thebirdhouse.com.au/http://www.thebirdhouse.com.au/IMG_4896

Natalie Bird of The Birdhouse had travelled down from Brisbane to share her project on the day (and sorry I don’t have a pic of the gorgeous little needlebook she designed for the day – but Im sure someone will share it)


My project was this useful little project bag. It is perfect for storing your project for stitching on the go – in fact I think I need to make about ten of these…. I went a complete blank on a name for this so it is called ‘Vicky Victoria’ – meaning nothing at all, it just came to me..victoriana full picIt has a little clear vinyl window so you can see which project you are grabbing to take to stitching group today. I included some gluestick applique (and I even pre printed all the shapes onto the Applique paper for the girls so they could get right into learning and appliqueing) And I used one of my favourite lace zippers so no insertion required Smile
