Home from the Gathering

It was a lovely day at the Quilted Crow's Gathering today. Both Gail & Marg were delightful and their projects gorgeous ! I have taken lot's of photo's so grab a coffee and enjoy the ride. This little journal was one of Marg's.

And this gorgeous bookmark with a hand painted button from the Theodora Cleave range - Talk about delightful - Those buttons are just divine.....

More Yumminess from Marg - Bookmarks

Gorgeous bag from Gail.

Table runner and needle book designed by Gail.

And a close up of one of the stitched panels on the table runner.

All of the lovely Journals, bookmarks and key chains designed by Marg

Aren't they lovely? There was also a book bag which you can see on the right hand side.

Another project by Gail. We all felt totally spoilt + there were some more delightful projects designed by Leonie and Deidre which I will show you another day.

You can see Leonie's lovely table runner in this photo and of course the display and shop area behind. I didn't go there at all - OF COURSE - Well maybe just 3 times - but everything that came home with me was really really needed........

I chose to start Gail's table runner today

Despite lot's of eating, laughing and chatting I did manage to get this much stitching done.

Jo was busy making a lovely bookmark for herself.

And the lovely Lisa & Jane admired the finished project.

Here we are all 7 bloggers.

Gail, Moi & Jane
And here are the 6 challenged girls - In more ways than one - LOL
Helen won a lucky door prize of 6 pieces of fabric and challenged us all to make something from a piece by easter Tuesday - I wonder what we will all come up with?

It has been a lovely day of friendship and stitching. Now all we need is for Sandra to have a blog to join in the fun - Yes I know you are reading this Sandra !!
I am off now to finish my stitchery.

Oh, Fiona, what fun! And how humbling. You are all so gifted and talented. It took me forever to get through this post, clicking on all the links, and I'm still not finished! But I'll have to come back later, as duty calls. ~karen
