I'm so sad :-(

Another wonderful gathering has ended and I miss my friends already. It was such a lovely day and I love to see what everyone is doing and have a good old chat. It just goes far to quick. Thank-you Leonnie and Dierdre for a great day and to Gail Pan and Marg Low for sharing the day with us.
I'm a hopeless blogger, dashed out this morning without my camera! Luckily Fee had hers so if you visit her blog you'll see some of the projects we had to choose from. Plus a  couple of photos of the bloggers who attended. Fee sent me a photo of what I made and actually completed. This was all I did all day!!
This gorgeous bookmark was designed by Marg Low and is higlighted by a Theodora Cleave button. I learnt how to do glove stitch and would you believe I only just learnt how to do a quilter's knot (Thanks Helen, you're a good teacher!)
I've got plenty of projects to go on with so hopefully I can get a bit more stitching in before the day's out!

It is a bit sad that its all over...I'm just a bit tired to do any more sewing tonight, but have been checking out the bag pattern and eager to start...maybe tomorrow!
Great to see you today

Had a look at Fiona's blog and I am green with envy. How lucky you all are and such gorgeous projects. I believe they have these gatherings twice a year so don't despair the next one is almost one day closer! Fancy forgetting the camera, but then you could get more sewing done!

Oh no ... you forgot your camera! Never mind ... as long as you had a good time I'll forgive you. Will pop over and have a look on Fionas. Really keen to see the projects on offer ... they are always beautiful. Hope to be able to come down next time.

Hi Jo,
Don't you just hate it when you forget your camera? I've done that! And last time, I remembered my camera, but the battery was dead. I had charged it the night before, but it didn't "take". grrr At least you can rely on Fe; she takes terrific pictures. None of my friends blog; So sad! 8(

Can't wait to see what you're going to make out of your pretty challenge fabric. 8)

Happy Stitching!
Susan

Hi Jo, love your bookmark and isn't it great to get together with friends, specially when there is stitching.
