Friends in Stitches

On Saturday, we headed to Glen Waverley for the Friends in Stitches day with Leanne Beasley, Natalie Lymer and Gail Pan. It was a lovely day of stitching, sharing, chatting and eating! The name tags were ready for us as we arrived.
 The samples of our projects were on display too.
 This group of friends had made matching tops to wear on the day with all that they were going to enjoy printed on them.
 We shared the table with these lovely ladies.
 Our kits were in the blue bags. There is Meg joining our table for a moment with her cute red hat on.
 Gail, Leanne and Natalie telling us about the day and the projects.
 There were inspiring displays of the ladies' wonderful creations around the room.






 We even received a beautiful gift in this little box!
 It was a lovely necklace with "I create" on it.
 The food was very good too especially dessert after lunch. There were lots of choices and some were tiny little desserts like this. It was delicious.
 In the afternoon there was a show and tell session and it was so inspiring. Look at all these wonderful quilts.










 In the evening we headed back to the city and met Rose for dinner. It was lovely to catch up with Rose. We had met on the stitching cruise earlier in the year.
We then headed back to the apartment for our last night. On Sunday, we enjoyed a sleep in and then a little shopping and finally flew home in the afternoon. It was a lovely few days away.
