But I made it. I told you I would...
Yes it was a nightmare journey, but I was helped by some kind strangers keeping me on time, awake and in the right place, and reassured of more help from my lovely mate Katy when I reached planet mainland if I needed it. Exhausting and stressful, but OMG so completely and utterly, totally worth every second. I had the best time!
I tried to remember to take photos, but ultimately forgot a whole lot of the time (- check out the stitch gathering page for some beauties.) but here are a few of the hundreds of highlights!
My name tag from Dolores of Dee Roo Designs Isnt this fantastic? She made a CUPBOARD!! I got to chat to her loads over dinner and believe me she is bloomin lovely.
First up was bib class with Julie - I dont have photos but I think she showed some. It was such a great class, and here are the first of our endeavours!
|Mine, Fiona's and Mums!|
|Katy and mum discussing the finer points of foundation paper piecing|
Fortunately I woke up just in time for Katys malteser cupcakes hmmmm and rather than start late I had a visit from my wee buddy Jack instead.
I offered to make Jack a cape whilst we waited for the teapot people to finish. I think he approved.
Some SuperJack fun ensued.
Apparently not so much fun when I suggested the cape could also be a nice headscarf.
That's 11 fat quarters, 1 half yard, one box of threads, an aurifil, some other threads including embroidery floss, Frixion pen, Very Berry Handmades Liberty Scrap pack, a Hexie kit, buttons, needles, broach, Liberty bag, Highland Spring water (loads more were handed out free all day) Nairns biscuits, Thread cutter.....Really brilliant booty from the Stitch Gathering sponsors
