Fun Week....

On Sunday my DD arrived to attend Lynette Anderson's Stitch the Day Away in Geraldton on Tuesday..  Sew we had a few days to go for lovely longggg walks along South Beach, swim and enjoy a coffee at the Seaside cafe...

Then Tuesday morning we got up early, had breakfast popped our baskets in the car and drove to Geraldton for the fun filled day with Lynette and the Quilt Sherpa

After we received our "goodie bag" it was time to get started..

there was a fabulous 'Scissors Keep' , a Charm Square Pack of Stonehouse Garden fabrics, A lanyard and thread keeper ,both with our names on and a sweet tape measure..

It was a wonderful day and Lynette was a great teacher and we learnt to use some
fabulous new tools making needle turn sew much easier

then it was time to start ...

iron on the transfer,

as well as chatting

and drawing

We were asked to stitch a little design by Lynette and make a pin cushion we could swap on the day...

It was lovely to see sew many different pin cushions and I was happy to have received the one my DD made...

of course there was Show and Tell and I was pleased I remembered to take along my "Chateau Hexagon" BOM...

I am now busy working on Fernhill,  have Anderson's Farm also waiting to be stitched BUT while Lynette was in Geraldton I have now signed up for "Seaside Town"

It's one I JUST have to make.....

Thank you Lynette and Quilt Sherpa for a memorable day.. Also for some of the photos from your Facebook..

Oh I must close now as I need to get ready for our Patches Stay At Home Retreat......

Happy Stitching

Hugz Maria :)

  12. What fun! Love all the pincushions and some great photos! Does it take you long to get to Geraldton? Nice to have your daughter there with you as well! I'll go have a look at the seaside town, but I think I have my hands pretty full of projects this year already lol

  14. Wow - you gals find so much fun! So good for the soul.

  15. Maria, I've LOVED seeing all these great pics - what a great idea with the pincushions! Your beach pics always look great... my beach is very windy & weedy at the moment with the nasty winds blowing straight in off the ocean. But I do like to go there anyway for a walk & to do some thinking.

  16. What a great meet up! Thanks for all the wonderful photos x

  17. Looks like you had a wonderful time!

  18. I'm sure it was a fun day - how funny you got DD's pincushion!! I think that idea is have one pattern and make something.

  19. Looks like a great class! So lovely that you got to go with your DD. I would love to learn new ways to make needle turn easier!!
