Stitch and be happy!

On Saturday I spent the day here
along with an excited bunch of stitchers from near and far!
I didn't do any stitching as I played shopkeeper
which gave Helen and Lynette an opportunity to roam around the room talking and assisting the ladies with stitching techniques.

The ladies were given two kits in their goodie bags
This was Lynette's project
and this was Helen's project
 Lynette bought along some great new tools which help make glue stick applique not so messy and Helen showed her new wash away applique papers.
And of course there was lots of shopping at Helen's stand
 and Lynette's stand.
The day was catered by the most amazingly talented bunch of young ladies from the Buckingham Rowing Club, Thank-you!

I even tried my first macaron...absolutley divine!
But the part I enjoyed most about the day was catching up with lots of friends including
Cathy, Georgia, Leanne
new friend Dee, Pauline and Lib in the background there too.
It was a special day and I hope we all get to do it again one day!
Thank-you also to everyone for your well wishes to my son, he doesn't require any further surgery and it looks to be healing well. He is now in a red fibreglass cast for four more weeks and then everything will return to normal. It hasn't been much fun being dressed by your Mum when you're 16.

From everyone's posts the weekend looks like it was a lot of fun. Don't envy you having to help the 16 year old.....but I'm sure he is grateful for your help.
