Hi everyone! Wish I'd had time to blog earlier but things have been wonderfully busy as usual (okay, I squeezed in a trip to the new IKEA Springvale as well!). Urban Stitches was fantastic and a great time was had by all:
Rosie, Melly, and I had so much fun with everyone I hardly took time to take photos! We held both of the one day workshops (although we got to enjoy the company of quite a few ladies who joined us for two days!!) at the Novotel in Glen Waverley, Melbourne:
Melly, Myself, and Rosie (left to right, below) enjoyed teaching our projects over the weekend and we really hope those of you that joined us enjoyed creating them as much as we did. I'd love to insert a photo here of our three projects but I forgot to take one!!!
We always feel that delicious food (and good coffee!) are an important part of the day and we certainly enjoyed that at the Novotel. With a full buffet lunch (and an amazing dessert buffet as well) I am sure we all gained a few extra kilos!
Under The Mulberry Tree brought along the FULL collection of Cosmo embroidery thread including all the seasons varigated range (promise I won't tell who purchased the entire range with her pocket money!):
Some stitching did get done too!:
Above all, there was lots of friendship, laughter, catching up, telling of stories, amazing show and tell, and just pure relaxation and indulgence!
The three of us hope you had a ball!!

P.S. Many of you have been asking about my project (sneak peeks on earlier blog entries). I have decided now to release it as a kit which will include the screen printed hanky linen (as above), pattern, and all the delicious Cosmo threads. Give me a little time to get it organised and I will let you know here on the blog when it's available.
If you simply cannot wait we actually made extra goody bags for Urban stitches and you can purchase those from Under The Mulberry Tree. They include all of the kits (mine, plus Rosie and Melly's, and all the Parlan, Weaveline, threads, gifts etc). My kit from the giftbag also includes the buttons and border fabrics in the project. There are only a few of these left so you will need to be quick!
