Well done Robyn...................

I arrived home late this afternoon after the two day workshop at Country Hart in Port Pirie.....This was the first one Robyn has organised....and I am sure everyone who attended would agree that she, her staff and family did a fantastic job! 

Thanks Robyn!


 "goody" bags............ 

 Flowers for the table................ 


 and name tags.............

A lot of time and effort went in to the set up of the room and food was taken care of with packed lunches in brown paper bags delivered to the tables at lunch time morning and afternoon tea each day (including scones/jam/cream, cup cakes, cream cakes, cheesecakes, muffins)....well you get the picture!

I even managed to get some stitching done.........


Gail and Natalie each taught two projects over the two days so we were spoiled for choice........I decided to work on the stitchery for Gail's pattern for a block keeper..........I enjoy these weekends for the stitching......for the chance to get away for a couple of days.....but most of all to catch up with stitching buddies old and new........I shared the table with Meredith, Rebecca, Julie and Kris....thanks girls for a great time!  Has anyone got the green thread?

Here's Natalie with her Sunday project..........

 Gail with a copy of her book................


And some more eye candy from the shop.....

Mark bought dinner over with him tonight...which was a good thing as I hadn't had time to cook........since arriving home I have unpacked ...done a load of washing and got things organised for the working week......I think I am ready for an early night!  The fur kids were pleased to see me....and thanks to the puppy/kitty sitters they were well fed and happy........

Rose was anxious to see what I had been up to over the weekend....here she is checking out the  photos as I was downloading them.......


Have a great week ..............................'Til next time...............Lorraine

Looks as if a great time was had by all and a lot of time and effort put into making it happen.
Had to chuckle at Rose looking at the screen, Cody (my cat) sometimes does that, I think he is more interested in the mouse cursor moving around.

Looks like you had a great time. Oh well next time but at least I was productive over the weekend and have my mojo back now that I can get into my sewing room and look around a feel inspired instead of thinking I should tidy this up. Have a nice little pile of repro red, but found that I had chopped lots of it up into tiny pieces for a quilt that I have long since forgotten about lol will bring them on sunday.

Sue said...

Wow. Looks like it was a fab weekend. Love your goody bag and the flowers on the table are too cute. How generous of Robyn. A stitched block keeper sounds fun. Don't forget to show us the end result. Looking good so far. xx Sue
