Stitching on the Lake - first week

It was so lovely to catch up with lots of fellow stitchers today at our first Stitching on the Lake day for this year. We even  met Consie and Kirsten who live in the USA. They were here visiting friends and came today even though they are on their way home tomorrow! It was another lovely day of stitching, chatting and delicious food. Thanks again to Lynne and Sammy for the great morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Fiona and I enjoyed meeting new stitchers and catching up with many old friends.
Here is the room all ready for the day.
 The samples plus a few of the lucky door prizes all ready for the day.
 Terrie and Najelle had set up the Hobbysew stall beautifully to tempt the ladies. There did seem to be quite a few having a lovely time at the shop.
 This packet of Anni Downs fabrics was very tempting!

 The food was delicious as always. There was lovely morning tea and afternoon tea but I only managed to get a few photos of the yummy lunch.

 The day few past and everyone was very busy stitching, painting a little, fusing little houses, counting threads and having fun with hexagons.

It was lovely to see all the gorgeous show and tell! Karen has finished this lovely project from Urban Stitching a few weeks ago.
 Martha has been very busy and has been using her table runner for ages.
 She had also finished her little painted wooden house and scene
 ...and this lovely Bareroots pattern as well.
 I just love the colours that Audrey has chosen for her Red Home bag. It looks wonderful in these lovely fabrics by Lynette Anderson.
 Pat had lots of these absolutely amazing stumpworks to show us. These are just 2 of about 10 lovely embroideries.

I am feeling very tired now and might just have to put my feet up and have a little stitch. Looking forward to doing it all again next Saturday!
