Friends and Inspiration overload

One of the things I love about sewing days are the friends.
Are you ready to put some faces to some names?

Back row:-  Claire, Me, Anne, Vicki, Melody
Front row:- Shez, OndreaGail Pan and Barb.

 Fiona and me hiding from Shez's camera!
You have to watch Shez with her camera as you just never know where your pic
will show up and for me who hates to be in front of the camera,
its a terrifying thought! lol

Another thing that I love are the displays that the designers set up of their work. 
 There really is something special about seeing the items
in person instead of just the photo on the cover of a pattern.

Here is a glimpse to what we were treated to on the weekend.
As you can see the two designers styles here are so different with 
Gail using more muted / country tones and Leanne the brights.

You cant help but walk away from an event like this and be inspired.

Many of these projects in the above pic can be found in Leanne's Magazine "Vignette"

One of each pattern thanks Santa :o)

Thank you Leanne and Gail for hosting such a fun day.
