Inspired Stitching…

Day 1 of the Inspired Stitches retreat … so much fun….greeted at the door with a lovely welcome…a bright airy room…bags of goodies on our chairs with patterns and starter kits, extra patterns, fabric, lollies, and more all in a hessian carry bag…two lovely designers in Natalie Ross and Natalie Lymer…first order of the day, morning tea…relaxation mode right off the bat…and Then…the projects were revealed…

From Natalie Ross…

Strawberry Frenzy…a bucket bag, a snazzy pincushion arrangement for the sewing machine and a lanyard to keep essential sewing helpers close at hand.

From Natalie Lymer…

Just Darling…a larger bucket bag with accompanying needle book and gadet bags in three sizes.

Are we just spoilt, they are georgeous projects from two very lovely ladies…

And what did I accomplish other than my usual class bobbleheading…

A good start on the large stitchery for the Just Darling bucket bag…the threads included in the kit are Cosmo and they are Sooooo Nice to work with and georgeous colours, really clear and beautiful shades.

Now to prepare the strawberry applique for the Strawberry Frenzy bucket bag for Day 2 – well, got to have a go at both projects, can’t be showing favouritism – he he he.

Happy Sewing…
