To say that the the trip away to attend the 4th Let's Get Stitched weekend was awesome would be a true understatement. It was a wonderful time spent with new and old friends. The memories and bonds formed on these weekends can't be measured. It is just a wonderful 4 days. This year I finally got to meet my treasured friend Jenny of Elefantz. We have been calling and e-mailing for over 5 years and finally got to meet up. How wonderful !
The weekend was full of lots of yummy things and inspiration. I haven't stopped drawing or stitching since I have returned home - Part of the reason for this late blog post.
It was great to see some different quilting stores and help the Victorian economy along with a bit of a boost.
I may or may not have purchased a lot of fabric !
We spent a few hours in a gorgeous little town called Sassafrass - What a gorgeous place on top of the Dandenong ranges.
Lots of delicious food was consumed over the 4 days including this flour free orange and almond cake - It was divine !
One of the highlights of the weekend was spending time with my darling Dawn. It's been a tough past year for Dawn and it was wonderful to give her a hug in person.
We celebrated our 4th Birthday of Let's Get Stitched on Saturday night with a meal out and a birthday cake.
Sunday was our stitching day and it was wonderful to have 50 ladies there to share the day with us.
Vicki was this year's host and did a wonderful job of looking after us all.
This year I designed a Retreat Bag for the event. It holds everything from an A4 cutting mat, rotary cutter, 6 1/2" ruler and much much more. The pattern will be launched to shops with my new distributor really soon. (Oops I think I let out a bit of my secret :) )
Until next time,
