Scrub Stitchin' project................

This post is so over due........but now I can finally reveal..............these plans and projects were all planned mostly in May last year...........hence the date on the bags.........

These star mugs were perfect.............Baradine is in the Warrumbungle Shire .....the Warrumbungles National Park which is very close by......it is the only dark sky park in Australia.............Siding Springs Observatory on the edge of the Warrumbungles is very important to astronomers..............
so stars around here are even brighter due to the lower light pollution levels..........
The mugs looked so good in the dishwasher when we gave them a wash...........

Onto the project..............
ta da............
Scrub Stitchin' Bucket Tote designed by Sonia and me.............

Baradine is in the Pilliga Scrub............its got a lot of White Cypress pine hence the pine trees..............the star is the sky.......and there are heaps of birds......

Sonia and I had so much fun planning the projects and weekend..........then the photo shoot with our bags...........

love it.............

Maybe a champagne or two was consumed in the planning.............

NOW for the winner of the giveaway.................
the general consensus was a smaller project but the chatting and friendship shared while at the retreat is as important as the sewing..............
Sounds like some of you have also enjoyed amazing times at retreat.....
the winner is Lou @ Manxgirl - get your self off to a retreat...........
%%%%
so much fun and heaps of pics i'm not sure where to start.............but I will be back with more............
I am way behind in replying to comments too...........but hope to catch up soon..........

Catch you later.......
