LGS Stitching Day!

What can I say about the Let's Get Stitched Stitching Day. We had a fabulous time and yes,
even managed to get a little stitching done!
Dawn, Joy, Vicki, Fee, Marilyn, Jenny, Vikki and Rosalie.
Vicki Tucek (The Pickledish Patch), Dawn Hay (As Sweet As Cinnamon), Fee Ransley (Mum's Cupboard), Jenny Reynolds (Jenny of Elefantz) and Joy Coey (Joy Patch) welcomed everyone. They then introduced the two mystery designers for the day, Vikki Collumbine (Sew Useful Designs) and Marilyn Duncan (Mardi Meanderings). Those two had kept their secret so well over the previous couple of days. Not even their closest friends knew! Then as an extra surprise, out from behind the curtain came Rosalie Quinlan!
These are the lovely patterns in our bags, 
including some lovely extra bits. Just realised I've left
my pretty little tins out of the photo!
Me, Sue (Quilted Hugs), Shez (Enjoying Life), 
Vicki, Jenny and Mel (The House On The Side Of The Hill).
With Shez, Sue, Mel and Fee.
 Of course, delicious lunch!
 Chatting with Rosalie.
With Dawn.
Vicki explaining part of her project.
Proof that Mel did some stitching. 
Although she may just be pretending!
This is what I managed to get stitched. More than I thought I would! I decided to start on the project Rosalie gave us.
I was lucky enough to win one of the raffle prizes. 
I received a 6 month subscription to 
Creative Patchwork and Stitching.

I'll share the lovely projects from the girls in another post. 
I think this one is long enough!
