Stitching Soiree

Yesterday I spent a great day sewing.  Lisa from Fig 'n' berry and Leanne from Petals & Patches organised another great day for us.  Karen Martin from Mrs Martins quilt shop was there to tempt us with many goodies to buy ( she may or may not have tempted me lol).

First up we were greeted with this gorgeous bag sitting at out tables waiting for us.
Our morning tea.

Wasn't long before I dived into my goodie bag.  Have a look at the fantastic kits and patterns we got.
Close up of Lisa's patterns.  I started the Daisy Chain needle case.

Leanne's patterns
I did manage to get some sewing done before we heard the call lunch is ready....
Then dessert.
Barb won the first raffle of the day.
I won a voucher which was spent on the day.
Another fantastic day looking forward to October to the next one.

Blankets blankets blankets

I haven't been doing much sewing over the last month because I have been finishing these blankets.  The first one was an order  so I need to get it finished quickly.
The second one was made for one of Angus's friends.
Lastly this one was made for Angus for when he is in the car for winter.
Tonight's project is to cut up some fabric for charity quilts for  Karen  Martin and do the ironing.
