Brisbane Stitching Day

Blogger stitching friends from Toowoomba, Ipswich, and the outskirts of all directions of Brisbane met up for a fun day of show and tell, chatting, laughter and stitching - yes, we did all manage to do some stitching.  It was our first official Stitchers Inc day, organised by Maree at the perfect venue - a Community Room.




  


Some of us took along our Stitch-A-Long completed projects - the April Bon Noel wall hanging, (photo by Teresa),
 and our March pin cushions.
As always, there were some amazing show and tell items.

 Susan's Sew Laugh Love is beautiful and was much admired.
 Debbie's butterflies are gorgeous and her stitchery below is so pretty and neatly stitched.
 Maria showed her wall hanging and the beautiful red scarf she is holding.  The scarf looked so soft and such a pretty stitch pattern.


I worked on the next section of my Butterfly Garden quilt.

It was so good to catch up with friends, and also to meet other bloggers for the first time.We will be meeting at this venue on a regular basis.  It will be great to meet up again next month.

That looks like a lot of fun - I know I have a great time when I get together with my sewy friends for dinner and sewing - we usually don't get a lot of sewing done because we're talking and carrying on so much, lol! OH look - SuperMomNoCape was here too - she's one of the ladies I've sewn with!
