Yes, I was away in the lovely country area of Shepparton/Mooroopna last weekend and had a ball! It was two very fun days with the girls from 'Country Thyme Patchwork' and Rosie and Melly and all the great ladies that came along to enjoy the event.
Usually at this point I would have endless photos to show you but my camera decided to die when I got there! It had been playing up for some time and I should have had it fixed much sooner (a stitch in time and all that!).
Back to the here and now I am about to do an evening at 'Heart to Hand' with Rosie next Friday the 26th June (have a look at her blog for all the details on her entry dated June 10). I have been busy designing and stitching this little stitchery:
As Rosie mentioned every person that spends over $50 in the shop will receive for free a little stitchery kit that includes this linen, iron on transfer, and thread to match. We will be spending the night with all the ladies that come along stitching and shopping while enjoying a glass of mulled wine (or fruit punch) and some nibbles. So just bring along an embroidery needle and scissors (and a hoop if you like to use one).
I have left a little space on my design so that you can add in your initials and the year you stitched the project:
I've popped mine in on my little version:
Lois' shop, 'Hand to Heart', is just lovely:
Full of treasures for the home, including the kitchen:
As this is one of my favourite places to be in my home I love decorating it and having special things like the yummy tea towels she stocks:
Rosie and I and Lois' would love to share half an hour or an entire evening with you, so come along if you can!
'Hand to Heart' can be found at: Shop 3/91 Dorset Road, Ferntree Gully, Victoria. If you like RSVP to Lois (so she can make sure there will be enough nibbles!)(oh, and mulled wine!) at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Love to see you there!
