Girls Day in the Country...........

Wow I have had the best time.............met some wonderful girls at the Girls Day in the Country.........so tired and have a huge day tomorrow so here is the quick report.........

ate far to much, chatted constantly, did get some stitching done (amazing I know) toooo much retail therapy........nearly to many drinks last night............

Rosie's punch needle project...........(I didn't do punch needle but lots had a go)

Rosie's projects..........stitching bucket (probably not quite what she called it) and a needle case........

I love all the projects the girls had...............so pretty.............

Leanne's Project - needle turn or blanket stitch whatever takes your fancy..........(sorry not the best pic)

  22. What a wonderful time you all had there!! To be able to meet your blogger friends and to have classes, and do stitching ( not to forget to mention "eats" too!!!) You do some pretty work and you have a big following--I see you listed on alot of my blog site lists--so decided I needed to introduce myself to you== I have a blog site--actually i have two sites--one is more for entertaining and the second one is for my projects--the main one is: quiltingisblissful.blogspot.com and by the way I think I am AU, but living in the wrong country--I much prefer your magazines and designs to ours!!!!!Just, Di
