Two Stitching Days In A Row!

  Saturday I headed up to Patch n Quilt in Gisborne 
to catch up with these lovely ladies.
There was lots of laughing and chatting.
 Once again we had a swap. This one was a Bird theme.
Once again there was a wonderful selection of gifts.
 I came home with this lovely bag made by Elyte.
Such beautiful appliqueing.
 I made a sewing folder.
 This went home with Jo
I think she got my gift the last time too!

Thanks to everyone for another wonderful get together.
Thanks to Mary too for being a lovely hostess.
We did enjoy those lollies!
 I sent an ornament to Barb for Christmas and unfortunately it arrived broken in the mail. 
So I made Barb another one.
Sunday I was lucky enough to go to another 
stitching day with some other lovely ladies. 
How lucky was I to get two sewing days!
The newest issue of Australian Patchwork and Quilting is out. There is an article on our 2015 NOTYQ Quilt Exhibition.
