Last Sunday I headed to Hobart ear;y for a fun day of stitching with my best buddies. We went to spend the day with Helen Stubbings and Natalie Bird.
We had a great time, lots to look at and of course buy.
Natalie had some beautiful samples for us to admire, I love this bag.
I definitely want to make this bag to, I have this pattern and have always liked it but now I have seen the bag in person its moved up my To Do list. I just need to find some nice linen.
Helen had lots of pretty things to look at to, Her quilts are beautiful.
So many things to buy. I was good and only bought some cotton bobbins, I really didn't need anything. We had a wonderful day and it was lovely to just sit and stitch and talk with friends. I''ll share the projects we got for the day next week, I forgot to take a photo of them.
Yesterday I worked on a new magazine project and when I was satisfied I had done enough of that for one day I moved on to finish my Aeroplane Bag, I love how this tuned out, using the bag batting is difficult as its so stiff and hard to wrangle in the sewing machine but I found if I took my time and sewed the seams with a bigger stitch length it worked quite well. I sewed over the same seam a couple of times just to reinforce it.
Now its ready to pack with goodies to take on our trip, only 11 sleeps to go. Yep.... I'm counting down.
