Doctoring a Bag!

After lots of procrastinating I finally put the finishing stitches into this bag. 

 I loved the gorgeous bag that Lynda had made and Lynda was so generous she sent me enough fabric and a bag frame to make my very own.

You can purchase the pattern called "Doctor's Bag" from Joy Patch and surprisingly it's so easy to make although getting the frame in is a bit fiddly but worth the effort.

Thank-you so much Lynda, I've now got a great, funky bag to take to the Craft Show this weekend!

A Stitching Affair

Last weekend I joined Helen Stubbings and Gail Pan plus a group of beautiful women at the picturesque Tarraleah, Tasmania for A Stitching Affair.
Tarraleah is an old Hydro Town which has been turned into a luxury resort.

 My job for the weekend was to make all the girls feel very spoilt, so I tizzied everything up in pink and blue,

wrapped all their gifts,

put a few surprises in,

(they each got a Tilda Charm pack)

made everything pretty,

 added some sparkle,

 gave them a few keepsakes,

 pom poms on trees,

and I helped the ladies shop!
We all had so much fun but do you know what surprised me the most, there was not one blogger amongst them!
