Sydney Weekend

An update from last weekend when there was another trip to Sydney catch up again with mum and dad and take part in a great one day workshop with my sister, Linda, called "Slow Stitching" with Lisa Mattock.....she had all her wonderful samples to show us.... a smorgasbord of inspiration.....
A week later and mine is not much further advanced than when we finished off at the end of the day!....while I came back to work Linda stayed on in Sydney for a few days and every spare minute was spent stitching! No photo but I'm sure hers is finished by now!
Photos of finished "creations" will appear - hopefully sooner rather than later! 
In all the years I've lived on the far South Coast (30yrs!) my one "must" stop when travelling to and from Sydney has been Sew & Tell in Berry.... whether just to browse or to make the occasional purchase.....well, what am I to do now! It is closing....!! 

With 50% off everything I added to my stash of Tilda fabrics....... day I will make something from one of these lovely books which have been in my bookcase for.....some time! I think I just need to cut into my stash and start!! 
Although our weather has been rather warm for knitting.... I did finish a scarf  for Megan.... England is still experiencing cold weather so this is in the mail as we speak! 
Another recent "finish" has been this wonderful book...... fell in love with the characters and loved the storyline!....Will be reading more of Liz Byrski's books.....
 And.... to finish off .....back to this weekend and a relaxing day at our local Botanical Gardens enjoying an afternoon tea shared by a "local"! 
Till next time
Happy Stitching
