There were lots of bloggers attending, so of course we had to have a group photo.
Back (L-R) Jo, Helen, Alex, Fiona and Leanne
Front (L-R) Me, Cathy and Sarah.
My sister, Kathy took the photo.
Sarah and I had a little challenge between ourselves to finish our Home Sweet Home stitcheries by yesterday. Here we are with the finished items. I love Sarah's frame made by her neighbour.
As usual, there were lots of lovely projects to choose from. Anni Downs had some gorgeous Christmas Berry Baubles in wool ...
and this adorable bag called Petunia's Garden Bag.
It has this handy little pocket on the back.
This is another version of the bag with a ricrac trim. Love the fabrics.
Natalie Bird from The Birdhouse designed this Christmas Trio Stitchery Wallhanging ...
and a Sunflower Wool Bag which is pictured here with Leonie from The Quilted Crow's Tiny Treasure Cones.
Continuing with the wool theme, Leonie also designed Nellie's Sewing Box which is a paper mache box covered with beautiful felted wool applique.
Deidre from the Quilted Crow made two lovely wool scarves. One had pockets and snowmen appliques. Take a look on The Quilted Crow blog if you'd like to see them as I didn't manage to get any photos.
It has taken me ages to do this post so I will leave the rest of my news to next time.
