Urban Stitches 2012

Fiona and I had a wonderful time away in Melbourne to attend Urban Stitches with Melly, Rosalie and Leanne. It was such a special time. There were over 100 ladies there on Saturday and there was so much chatting and laughing all day. We flew down on Friday morning and enjoyed some champagne and a delicious tasting platter for lunch. We also managed a little shopping.

 We even has some stitching time in our room in the afternoon before finding a restaurant....there are so many to choose from in this area....for dinner. On Saturday we were welcomed with a lovely orange bag full of patterns and kits.
The kits were for these lovely projects. Rosalie's was this pin cushion, bag and scissor keeper.
 Melly had created this bag.
 Leanne had made some lovely doilies.
 The kits included all the Cosmo threads needed, the stitching fabric and fabric to complete the project. There were also some scissors, some fabric and needles too.
 Leanne had hand written all the name tags.
 I made a start on Rosalie's project.
 Here we are busy stitching.
 Here are our busy teachers, Melly, Leanne and Rosalie.
I took lots of pictures so will have to do another post soon.
