We had a lovely night of stitching on Wednesday night. Barbara had finished this very special little Easter bag. It is so gorgeous and you can get the pattern for free on the Red Brolly blog.

I have just been away for a delightful weekend with my dear friends from my Bible study group. We go away each year to Batemans Bay and this time we had 3 nights away. The joke was that eventually it might become a week! It was a lovely weekend of relaxing with great food and beautiful surroundings. We enjoyed fish and chips in town enjoying this view.

Just had to share some Show and Tell from the stitching day and from Wednesday's classes. These lovely zippered bags and pin cushions were made by Joanne for her stitching friends for last Christmas. How lucky are they!
On Wednesday, Karen brought in this gorgeous jacket she is making for one of her grand daughters. It is looking so beautiful.
Sue has also finished this Bareroots felt mat for easter.

I did manage a little stitching when I was away in between all the swimming, eating, playing trivia, watching shows and reading! I had almost finished stitching another of these little sheep scissor keepers as my original has been lost.Anni Downs' needle/sewing books.
Had a lovely read of the latest Vignette magazine this week. It is a lovely issue but did remind me to get started on my centre blocks of the Vignette quilt.

Fiona and I thoroughly enjoyed our first Stitching on the Lake day for 2012. Here we are just before all the ladies arrived.
It was a delightful day of stitching and chatting and enjoying the delicious food prepared by Lynne and Sammy. Here is Helen's start on the little needle roll.

There are so many photos it is hard to choose ones to share. In Port Vila a few of us hired a taxi and had a very good trip around the countryside. The highlight was a swim here in this gorgeous freshwater lagoon. It was cool and clear and the locals were having a great time swinging on a rope into the lovely water.
Here are Ma and Pa enjoying one of the ports.
