There has been so much machine sewing happening here. I just had to get my top made for the Stitch-a-long blog by the end of September and here it is! It was a big job but worth it to have this quilt top ready!

We headed out to Tulip Top gardens yesterday and even though it was very chilly, the sun was shining and the flowers were gorgeous. We enjoyed the sausage sandwich provided and then feasted on yummy food that everyone brought along. It was a lovely day out.
We were trying to remember when we went there before. It was in 2007! I was checking my blog books to find it but I didn't blog back then! Some of us were there both times.

So good to see some lovely stitching on Wednesday this week. Karen has finished her amazing felt applique cushion from a pattern by Wendy Williams.

As we were using such lovely coloured felts in our projects, we decided to have a rainbow theme for our dinner on Saturday night. It was great fun and the ladies did such a great job of dressing up.
These were just a few of the lovely items on show. Thank you to all the ladies who attended our fourth Stitching on the lake weekend. Fiona and I enjoy planning and preparing for these weekends and it is always special catching up with everyone and sharing a weekend together.

It was lovely to get together with so many happy ladies at our retreat, Stitching in the Hills, at Warrambui near Canberra last weekend. We had 60 ladies attending the retreat this year and we had a really relaxing weekend of stitching, laughter and friendship. On Friday we set up the room with our cheerful kits all ready for the ladies. Fiona has more pictures on her blog. After a yummy roast dinner we opened the doors so the ladies could see what they were going to make over the weekend.
