There is so much to tell, I'm not sure where to start.
First things first, the Christmas Stitch-in was a fabulous success. Everyone had a lovely time.
Friday was a real rush, as I sorted through Christmas samples, dusted off the Christmas trees and checked with the printers what time I could collect my new book. It was ready with no time to spare, before heading out to The Joy Bus to set up.
A big thank you to Bronwyn for helping me Friday afternoon.
Then it was home to finish packing the goodies bag.
The workshop well under way and the girls enjoying themselves.
It was a real delight seeing how much was achieved on the day.
The stitcheries are from Festive Stitches and the felt applique from Joy to All.
Pudding Anyone? was a kitted project the girls received in their goodies bag. They whizzed through making this one - from memory they were finished by lunch time - including painting and sealing the spools!
Thank you to Fiona from The Joy Bus, for the delicious lunch and yummy morning & afternoon teas. I was too busy sampling to remember to take a photo.
And special thanks to the delightful group of girls who attended the workshop.
Only one more week before the Christmas Stitch-in. There are kits to do, fabric to cut and fold, samples to sort and goodies bags to fill, but yesterday I took some time out to sew a variation of one of the workshop projects.
