Stitching Day

I had a lovely day on Saturday stitching with friends. We joined  "Stitched in Time" with Gail Pan and Jennifer Knol. We all enjoyed the day stitching new projects, chatting, laughing, and catching up with new and old techniques and lovely food.
We each received
4 new release patterns. Starter kits for the patterns. A gift bag with lovely treats inside. There were lots of lovely surprises through the day. Foothills Fabric and Threads joined us with lovely fabric and goodies from the shop. There were lots of beautiful quilts on display both from Gail and Jennifer. The launch of Gail's new book Simply Christmas which I was lucky enough to win an autographed copy.
Gail also had a gorgeous new bag pattern Bloom.

I also bought this lovely bag pattern by Jennifer Knol. It has lots of gorgeous pockets, lace and buttons.  I had a wonderful day, thank you Gail and Jennifer for organizing such a great stitching day.
