Yesterday was the first Daylesford Craft Experience get together. Merrilyn and Zoe organised a fabulous day at the Peppers Resort in Hepburn.
We were all given a goodie bag with heaps of patterns, several of which were designed exclusively for the day. We were also given some fabric, thread and a needle so we could get stuck in with pointers from the designers themselves.
This is a lovely stitchery by Melly of Melly & Me.
This is my attempt below. Still a bit to do but my stitches are becoming more even and consistent.
Ric Rac wonder Jodie showed off how to use her Gocco machine. My god that woman can design! She is just one of those people that is a pleasure to be around. Maybe I see similar naughtiness in her as I have in me.....
My mini quilt postcard went into a basket along with everyone elses and we all chose one to take I home.
I received Michelle's great postcard, which I love. It's going straight to the sewing studio!
Michelle makes amazing dolls. Her 'show and tell' mermaid was freakin cool!!! I should have taken a picture.
I'm looking forward to sewing the Choc-pop quilt over the next week.
I've also made lots of progress with the quilting on the purple wonder. In fact the machine quilting is done, I just need to do some hand quilting. I can't wait for the big reveal.
