Blog Post…Blog Post….finally!!!

Wow!! how do I let it get to be so far in between posts?
Hello everyone and hope you all are going well… I am well and just cruising along and doing a fair bit of hand sewing and not alot of computer stuff… except I do play on FB a bit.
Anyway what have I been up to…
First of all the weekend in Melbourne with all the ladies who came to the Let’s Get Stitched event. It was a blast and everyone who went said they had the best weekend with like minded friends which made me very happy because I was a bit flat out organising it and making sure we had everything done for it all.

Our Fee found us the fabulous place to stay which was great cause we were all in the one place.
Us ‘Nutters’ love these weekends because we have made so many wonderful friends thru them and we know that you all have too.
This is us ‘Nutters’ ….

We also had lots of lovely ladies from ‘Our Craft Forum’ attend for the first time which was very exciting!! Even tho the forum is now closed but we have the Our Craft Forum group on FB.
First timers were Trish, Diana, Doris, Shez, Allison and Geniene. The others have been to our event before :)

The tables were all set up waiting for the ladies to come in and explore their goodie bags full of lots of fabulous items.
LGS 002 (Medium)The day was fabulous and we had us ‘Nutters’ plus we also had Jenny Reynolds join us as a tutor and we had 3 other surprises!!
We had Marilyn Duncan and Vikki Collumbine join us as 2 secret tutors and that was all the ladies thought they were going to be surprised with….but we had another surprise waiting behind the curtain to come out.

It was Rosalie Quinlan who created lots of ‘Ooohs and Aaahs and much excitement from the ladies.
