Casual Guild Day

I wonder if that is the right was of describing today....we had sit and sew at Guild but it was not a formal meeting. I met Tracee and Donna at the Kaiser craft shop in Geelong, some purchases were made there
an envelope maker, some stamps, journal bits and little wooden bits to decorate and stick about the place! Oh and some washi tape!

Donna was working on her stitchery, she is now officially hip!!! 

Tracee was sorting out her cottons...did she has 2 strands, 4 or 6?? Something had gone wrong in the middle of the threads.

Just to prove I was really there!! lol!!

I have finally finished this stitchery, has been on the go for over two years now, one of those pick up and take when stitching is happening, it has also travelled to the UK, Russia and Germany....obviously not much stitching happened there!!

and I was having a play with the crochet hook last night...not sure if I have understood the pattern correctly as it is a bit wonky!! Ah well it is the prototype!!
Happy stitching.

ooh, a lovely day of lots and lots!

I saw some stamping pens in Lincraft yesterday and thought of you (50% off sale).


What is washi tape used for? I used it to wrap presents this year, as I had lots of rolls and didn't know what to do with it.

Hello Donna! Hello Tracee! Hello Sue!

Had fun catching up yesterday with you lovely ladies. Gosh, that Kaisercraft shop is a trap. I'd love to see some of what you do with your purchases.

Hehehe, I like your prototype. Can I ask what it is meant to be? Cheeky, I know. Is Tracee making a penny rug? I see lots of felt circles in that bag. That stitchery needs to be framed and put in a place where you will see it a lot. It will remind you of your travels. LOL, we always take too much" just in case" and end up doing none. I love the Kaiser store in Frankston and have to refrain from buying anything as all my scrapbooking stuff is stashed away in the wardrobe of my sewing room. I buy things there for mum though hehehehe.
