Christmas Gathering

Fiona and I had a lovely weekend in Melbourne attending the Christmas Gathering with Leanne Beasley and Gail Pan. We flew to Melbourne on Friday morning and then headed to Glen Waverley where we  headed to the shops for a delicious lunch. We just had to have a glass of champers too!

 Food in Melbourne is always special and this taster plate was delicious. We also enjoyed a bit of retail therapy.
 The next day was a delight. We headed into the room to be welcomed but this reindeer, candle, a bonbon and our bag of kits.
 Here we are ready for a day of stitching. We shared the table with the ladies in the picture below. I missed a couple of them in my photo which was a shame.

 Here is the room full of excited ladies.
 Gail and Leanne showed us the 2 projects and then we enjoyed a day of chatting, stitching and eating.
 Here are the 2 kits that were in our bag.

 As always the room was full of inspiration with lots of Gail's and Leanne's samples everywhere.


 It was a lovely day of Christmas delights.
 Morning tea was this lovely gingerbread man, lunch was a delicious array of savoury and sweet food and afternoon tea was a yummy truffle.
What a special way to spend a day.
