Sunday at Immerse...

Saturday at Immerse...

Rosie, Melly, Erica, and I were really excited that so many ladies that came travelled so far to be with us at Immerse! We had ladies from Papua New Guinea, New Zealand, South Australia, New South Wales, and even from Western Australia! It was really fantastic to have Janelle (I'm sure many of you follow her in blogland) all the way from Perth in Western Australia:

She even came with one of her divine handbags that matched her outfit! (If you go to Janelle's site you can order your own - I am now the very proud owner of this handbag shown!):

Of course, Show and Tell is alway one the highlights of any retreat and I have to share some more with you. This was a really beautiful version of 'Down In The Garden' using Rosie's first range of fabric and 30's fabrics:

Vicki made this amazing quilt with all her Mum's grandchildren's drawings on it. Each grandchild made a drawing and Vicki embroidered over the drawing to make it permanent. There were lots of 'ohhhs and ahhhs' when this came out for Show and Tell'. The centre of the quilt has all their names on a Dresden Plate block:

Julie came with her beautiful version of Rosie's 'Bo-Peep' quilt:

Wendy's version of my 'Journey Of A Quilter' was so soft and pastel and inspiring:

So after a pleasant morning of stitching and chatting and morning tea and enjoying Show and Tell there was time for a glass of wine and some lunch:

After lunch (and more yummy food at afternoon tea - how great was the panacotta!?!) there was time for chatting and stitching:

And even wandering through the Spring gardens at Immerse:

I hope that those of you that joined us REALLY enjoyed our time together. I cannot think of anything better than spending a day with like minded women sitting and stitching...

Baby Food

I have to agree with your post. For those who want knowledge about this, Like me.


Hi Leanne

Meredith and I had a fantastic time, the whole weekend was just beautiful!! You all should be so proud of yourselves. Will start putting some pennies away incase you decide to do it again next year...

Back to reality now :o(

Take care,


Wow Leanne... you had some yummy food and wine... (How many did you have lol).

Love the projects.


Beth Blauser

thank you for your share of pictures they are just wonderful..


What beautiful show and tell, and the food looks so divine! Very excited to see the gorgeous Janellybelly on your blog too...I can't wait to catch up with her and see all the goodies you made at Immerse.


The show and tell would be so interesting and fun for you designers to see what others have done with your patterns. I love that wine photo!


Looks like a wonderful time! I'm envious.


Hi Leanne
I am so pleased you love your new bag, I just knew it wasn't meant to come home to Perth with me!
We 3 Sewing Sisters (& Kylie's Mum) had an amazing time at Immerse, thanks ever so much for all the hard work & attention to detail that went into this special day.
Love Janelle xx
