Stitchers' Dream Day Out

This last week has just flown. I know I'm not the only one complaining that time seems to be moving at an ever increasing rate.

Last weekend, Heavens to Bettsy and I went for a day out at Highfields near Toowoomba.
We attended Quilter's Angel's Stitchers' Dream Day Out. We had a great day. The guest tutors were Gail Pan, Natalie Bird and Nikki Tervo.








Check out Kris's Tag Along Teddies blog. Kris did a good post showing all the work that needs to happen before the guests arrive.
 Here we are - Lynda (l), Kris (c) and me (r).







We got a goody bag with 6 patterns, a kit for one of the patterns, a purse, a cute bright clip light, a charm, green tomato pincushion, and a magazine. We had morning tea and lunch,  and lucky door prizes. We meet fellow bloggers and shared our table with new faces. These photos show 4 of the projects.



Quilters Angel also puts on Girls' Stitch In in March.....hmmmm...we're thinking about it.
I was supposed to be back in Toowoomba this weekend, enjoying a class with Kathy Doughty (Material Obsession), put on by Precious Time. Alas, numbers were insufficient and the class was cancelled. I have compensation though. My 'Friends' booklet advertising the upcoming craft show arrived. Reece Scannell is giving a talk. It maybe the same talk he gave at the Sydney Craft Show, but that's okay. I'll be able to take in what I miss there.

I'm still not up to date with what has been going on, but that's for another time.

Take care,
Kayly
