Inspired Stitches 2011


 Yes, I have just had two days worth of fun and stitching. (In that order. This you will understand when you see how much stitching I actually did.) Sarah always runs such a fantastic retreat. Thank you Sarah. Our tutors were fantastic. Thank you Helen Stubbings, Gail Pan, Janelle Wind and Natalie Ross. They were busy all weekend sharing techniques with us and chatting and laughing with us too. I got to sit next to Pip (One of my favourite bloggers!) on Saturday and had a fun time chatting to her. I had met her briefly in real life before so knew it would be a good day when I saw her at my table. Then today I got to sit with Annette, Gerri and Kerry. I didn't know them before today, but enjoyed them very much because they are from Melbourne (ish!) and told me all about Melbourne patchwork shops! A most productive day. "Networking", as Julie would say. (I sat with Julie and Karan both days) So, without further ado, my two day's worth of stitching:

And more importantly, I did have a wonderful time!
