Last Wednesday...

With all the excitement and busyness of the Stitching day on Saturday, I didn't have time to show you some more of the lovely show and tell from last Wednesday at Hobbysew. The classes started again and it is always lovely to see what the ladies have done over the break.
At social stitching in the morning, Paddy shared this delightful candle mat from the Quilt a Gift book. It looks great and it is so lovely done in felt.
Donna has just been to the most fabulous embroidery holiday in the UK. She stayed (and hubby came too...what a wonderful man) in amazing country homes and I gather the food and accommodation was so special. As well, the ladies enjoyed some wonderful classes with very talented embroidery teachers and Donna tried some new techniques. Here is one of the projects. Isn't it amazing? I think this trip might need to be added to my "bucket list".
Paddy made this little candlewicked bag for Donna and it went on the trip with her. Lucky bag! We did this pattern in one of my classes a few years ago.
In the afternoon, Jill shared some of her finishes too. Jill has just been to Africa and had a wonderful time seeing all the animals. Here is her canvas humbug. Great colours, Jill.
Jill also made this little felt Santa with lovely beading.
