Earlier in the year we were organizing a Crazy Quilt Retreat in Canberra, when the time came to pay the deposit we did not have the minimum number that the venue required and we had to cancel but decided that we could still have a get together, we billeted out of town girls and one of the local girls found us a venue where we could meet during the day.
To get us started Mr Chicken showed us how to do the chicken scratch…
in the Chicken Scratch Sharon found a hat which she very kindly gave to me as it has Bermese Stumpworked elephants on it, and besides loveling stumpwork I also collect elephants…
And thanks to our sponsors who generously sponsored our smaller get together, we had a bag of goodies for everyone and where able to put together enough prizes so that there was one for everyone in the lucky Prize draw and I would like to send out a Big Thank you to the following sponsors:
Dancing Needles – Punchneedle Embroidery
Threads and Things
Wabi-Sabi Designs email:firstname.lastname@example.org
Canberra Needlework who kept ther shop open and supplied afternoon tea for us on the Saturday afternoon.
We also had show and tell, we stitched and shared, we went out for dinner on Saturday night…and we had a lot of fun and did a lot of laughing…
Sharon has more Photos on her Blog.
It is surprising though how having fun can make you so tired, I was absolutly exhausted when I got home Sunday evening but it was an absolutly wonderful weekend.
