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!
