Urban Stitches 2012

Urban Stitches 2012

What an amazing weekend. 
I have never been to a stitching day / event before
so I was not sure what to expect and all I can say now is, 
When can I sign up for next year? :o)

How much fun are the goodie bags.
Such a buzz to get to work on a project designed especially for the event by
the ever so talented designers Leanne, Melly and Rosalie.

Leannes Doilies - A bigger one will also be coming in the next issue of Vignette

Melly's beautiful bag
Rosalie's Urban Stitching Set 
I got to catch up with FionaSyliva and Meg.

and my project and progress for the day?

Not to bad considering the wonderful company and lovely food :o)

I will be back tomorrow to share some more photo's with you.
I am off now to grab a coffee and try to catch up on some blogs.
Last time I looked there were over 200 posts to read!

Enjoy your day
