Sew it Togetheragain!

Well, as we are nearly all linking to each other (not checking 59 blogs, but I'm sure we are), I thought I'd better fill the non-attendees that haven't seen it before- or at least keep myself a record!
Ernst joined my table for a sew along with Gypsy (he really did the quilt, not her!)

My project started off well (and finished a lot of hrs later not very advanced)

despite a lot of material and hogging the table heehee

This was just the line for lunch!

There were amazing goodies- sponsors gave out gifts (Moda bakeshop jellyrolls, yum) and there was a show bag and pressies. And
someone teasingly brought along ace fat quarters to buy- she sure bought them to the right place!

Oh, the bunny squares down the bottom are the start of a quilt, I got them cut out and fused onto Vliesofix (not the square! Good progress despite sitting next to Andi superstar!) I learnt some amazing tricks off her, though, like invisible thread in your bobbin for machine sewing you binding- might make no sense to some of you, but others will thank me right now for that tip. I sure loved it!
Some other highlights
  • Trash and Fi asking for MY scraps
  • A table of hexagonners (my new made up word)
  • Prizes- a surprise as I forgot this was going to happen.
  • Lunch- didn't have to think about it, loving that!
  • A walk up to Clegs with lots of other bloggers
  • Getting a spot at dinner, as having to go home alone after such a fun day would have been too much, I wanted more!

There are heaps of pics here and a who's who list here

Oh, Sheridan, how to thank you! You are the organising queen, and make me a very happy chappy!

You were quite productive Bec and I am sure if I ever brave doing a quilt I will thank you for that tip!
Lovely to finally put a face to the Beccasaurus blog.

Wow what an amazing little get together full of like minded crafty ladies. I've never heard of this but it sure is popping up on alot of my favorite blogs. Sounds like fun.

Cass said...

I'm with Cam I should have been getting that lesson too. It was great to meet you Bec

Gypsy said...

Ha ha! Ernst is a back seat quilter: he just sat there peering over my shoulder telling me what to do! Aaah, I still love him though.
Thanks for reminding me of Andi's invisible thread tip too, it's a great idea.
How's my lunch bag coming along?

Hope you got some good advice from Ernst.

Lovely to see those rabbits.
