Inspired Stitches

I have just spent the most wonderful weekend away at my first retreat organised by Sarah at Quilt Fabric Delights Visit Sarah's blog

We had two wonderful Australian designers who designed some special projects for the weekend Natalie Ross of Natalie Ross In Stitches Visit Natalie's blog to see some of her designs which I just love she uses bright fabrics which are really me. The other designer is Natalie Lymer of Cinderberry Stitches which you may be familiar with as I have made many of her projects Visit Natalie's blog .

These are the projects I am making.  Natalie Lymer (Cinderberry Stitches)

These are a bag and needlebook which are so cute the pattern is called Just Darling what a great name because the little fairy looks like a darling.

These are the Gadget Bags which will be just wonderful to put all your equipment in for taking to classes.  If you need help with zippers Natalie has a tutorial on her blog.

These projects are Natalie Ross' (Natalie Ross In Stitches)

A strawberry sewing machine pin cushion strap.  What a great idea.  I seem to always have pins falling on the floor.

Strawberry Frenzy Bucket Bag with needle turn applique.  Natalie has used a beautiful variegated thread from Cottage Garden Threads which is wonderful to work with.  The pattern also includes a lanyard which I didn't get a picture of.

I will put up pictures when I finish these are the original products made by the designers.

We also received a pre-release pattern from Janelle Wind Visit Janelle's blog  which I will show you soon.

I would also like to say a big thank you to Sarah and her family as they really looked after me with my foot which I really appreciated.

Before I went away I had been busy working on other projects.

This is an Anne Gasby design and I have used a range of fabrics called Blush which I just love and had to buy so I went through all my patterns and found the little elephants.

Raspberry Cream by Cinderberry Stitches which I managed to machine quilt in the ditch. 

And finally Teddy's Garden Treasures by Libby Richardson came back from the machine quilters so I managed to put on the binding on while the weather was a bit cooler last week.

Until next time happy stitching.
