2 weeks ago we had a lovely break with 9 friends at Alexandra. We stayed at the Vickery again which is great place set up for crafty girls ( or Guys!).
We had a very very productive weekend stitching our Summer School projects for Mrs Martins Quilt Shop stitch in day. This will be on the 18th January 2014, so the projects will be available soon for you to see. We have 6 new small quilts for the day. Stay tuned for more info soon.
While away we both brought these very handy bags that are really a sewing bag in disguise....they are meant to be toiletry bags but not any more.
And then they open up like this...
Also Lisa bought this very cool jar which now just happens to hold the bottoms of the prarie points she had to cut off as she is not a very good maths girl.....
She cut way too many points that were way to big
but once they were right and pined onto her Spring quilt for Lilly Patches Stitch in day on October 5th they looked like this......
Then all stitched down looked like this.....
The other projects for the day are Lou's Fly Away Peter wall quilt or runner
Lou's Family Garden stitchery also using pencils as water colours
And Lisa's Vintage Jewels
Also while away Lisa bought this gorgeous metal clip board with a bird magnet
When we went to Brisbane for the V&A show they have this super cute suitcase market. All the items are hand made.
Katherine had made these cute pockets which she called Lunch Pockets, but again these are really sewing pockets in disguise..
Actually the smaller one also fits your phone or small camera quite nicely. They are made from a vinyl fabric so wipe clean for the lunches that will not be going in our pockets. They fit your hand piecing, scissors and thread quiet nicely for travelling, have a little velcro to keep them shut and come in a range of very cool designs. Now for all you face book people you can find her there, I think you have to like her????
Sorry that's Lou's specialty, but for those like me you can text her on 0404072231

Thanks for visiting, have a great day!!
Lisa & Lou
