Indulge in Stitches

By June 7, 2016November 20th, 2017blog

This last weekend I travelled with my mum to the Barossa Valley, South Australia to Maggie Beer’s Farm for the Indulge In Stitches weekend.

The setting was divine – the sun was shining (after torrential rain the day before) and there were lots of excited women lining up to start a day of stitching!

10 tables of 10 women each so you can imagine the noise level as everyone poured in and started chatting 🙂

My mum and I sat at a table with 8 other women from around South Australia and Perth.

Everyone was given a goody bag – HAND MADE! With our own thread keeper attached 🙂

There were three patterns in there that we could choose to start for the day. Both mum and I chose the bunting pattern

But the bikes looked great as well!

    

Maybe when I finish the bunting I can get onto the bikes!

As you can imagine being held at Maggie Beer’s farm – the food was delicious!

I couldn’t let mum just bring her sewing bits and bobs in her handbag, so I made her a Bionic Gear Bag made out of Sue Daley’s Raspberry Parlour fabric.

We had a lovely time and it was a great mother – daughter day 🙂

This finished quilt was part of my Second Quarter 2016 Quilting Plan for the @FAL2016 hosted by @finishalong on IG

  • Wow, that does sound like a fantastic mother daughter day. And what energy the room must have had with 100 other sewers. 🙂

      there was a LOT of ‘energy’ in the room!! Some people showed some amazing items they had completed from previous years which was inspiring.

    That sounds like a blast, your bionic gear bag for your mom is darling and too sweet that they made the goodie bags for the stitchers.

    I love that bag you made your mom – I am off to look up that pattern! Congratulations on the finish and thank you for participating in the 2016FAL, on behalf of all the hosts!
