A Saturday Play Day...

Had a great day yesterday...played at a workshop day with Lisa of Fig 'n' Berry Creations, put on by the Stawell Craft Shop...lovely friendly welcoming ladies, a day spent with buddy Shez and cute projects designed by the lovely Lisa...fabulous...So what did we do...we had a choice of these two cute patterns, both of which we received as part of the workshop...
Given my sewing room is 220kms east of my weekday abode I had asked general questions of the pojects so I could pack requirements last weekend before heading back for the working week...Christmas themed, one stitchery, one applique...easiest I thought to start the stitchery on the day...took all embroidery floss, a bunch of backgrounds and stabiliser, to make a decision on seeing the pattern...turned out the pattern includes pre-printed muslin so all needed was choose which thread and stitchery design...
I'm not a kit person but I really liked the stripped fabric Lisa used in the applique project but the shop had none of that one left on the bolt so I grabbed one of the applique starter kits...then there are Lisa's designs which are all so darn cute and tempting...a lovely display of her quilts and other projects...I was particularly taken with her designs with birdies...and this lovely pattern followed me home to add to the library...
All in all a fabulous day well spent...looking forward to seeing what the lovely Stawell ladies have to play at next...

Happy Stitching...
