We spent two nights in a gorgeous converted dairy last weekend and had lots of fun chatting, stashing and de-stashing and even managed to do a little bit of stitching!
This is the second time we've met up and on both occasions we have exchanged goody bags. This time we had a Hallowe'en theme and I'd like to share with you the gorgeous goodies I received.
Lizzie*Kate design, fabric, glow-in-the-dark thread, Hallowe'en ribbons,
decorations, Lego monster and lots of sweets (a few of which were missing when I
came to take this photo!)
And a close up of the cute little witch she stitched, finished perfectly as always!
Sue Hillis Hallowe'en chart, fabric, Hallowe'en ribbons and threads, Witches Brew candle,
notebook and a Hallowe'en stitch!
Here are close-ups of Rachel's ornament (front and back) which I was honoured to receive as it is I believe the first ornament she has ever finished!
All the gifts were just wonderful, and my boys (aged 6 and 7) were absolutely thrilled to see all the decorations and sweets when I got home, dare I say it even more excited about those than seeing their Mum after her weekend away!
We did manage some stitching and I even started and finished a cute stitch during the weekend, but I will share those photos another time.
I had taken with me most of my UFO pile and stash and with the help of my friends I sorted through everything and managed to get rid of three projects that I no longer want to stitch on for various reasons. So you won't be seeing any more of this one...
(too hippy dippy!)
or this one...
(chart too complicated)
and most importantly, this one has gone too!
Yes, I've killed off my HAED Treasure Hunt Bookshelf! It was full of confetti and just didn't "grab" me any more. I have other HAED charts though and I still aim to complete at least one of them one day.
Thank you girls for a fun weekend - can't wait for the next one!
