Let's Get Stitched - Melbourne 2014

Last weekend, Sam Old Green Pastures  & I travelled to Melbourne to meet up with a group of ladies from every state plus New Zealand, for Let's Get Stitched. They have been meeting for 4 years now in various cities for a fun weekend of shopping, games, talking, laughing & of course stitching.

We had made a Mug Rug for all the ladies to sign, and also had to create a name badge for one of the ladies for a mystery badge swap on the first night. Our Friday night games night also included a charm pack swap game. This photo shows the mug rug I made, name badge Sandra made for me & the charm pack I won on the Friday night.
After drinks & meeting the girls on the Thursday night, we headed out on a bus trip on the Friday. The day included a visit to several patchwork shops (boy can we shop fast).

For our lunch break, we travelled up the mountain to Sassafras.
I managed to pick up some new panel fabric for my baby blocks as well as some other goodies.
Saturday was a free day so we used to time to rest & recharge having a quiet day of snoozing, knitting & snacking in our room.
Sunday was stitching day, such a fun day. The room was set up with goodie bags, a shop corner as well as kits & designs from the 7 designers (the Let's Get Stitched team of Vicki Tucek, Dawn Hay, Fiona Ramsey & Joy Coey along with Jennifer Reynolds, Marilyn Duncan & Vikki Collumbine). Rosalie Quinlan was also our mystery guest for the day.
The team had gone to a lot of trouble to give us a great day.
 Our goodie bags look great, here's what we found inside.
 Sam & I had so much fun stitching, chatting & laughing.

I have already finished my friendship stitchery by Rosalie Quinlan.
Next year the girls will be back but this time in Brisbane, first weekend in March.
