About Me

My photo
I started stitching a few years ago thanks to a very dear friend. She has encouraged and taught me so much. I am the Mum of three great kids who I love dearly. I love to stitch in my spare time and even though I am a newbie I enjoy it very much.

More Blue Mountains Retreat

The room looked beautiful when we arrived so much of the tutors gorgeous projects 
 on display to admire and see up close. I could easily have taken it all home with me.

These cute little birds were our table decorations and this cute little one flew home with me after the retreat.

I selected this table runner of Gail Pan's to attempt from my collection of patterns.

After a lesson from Gail on how to use a bias binding maker & a how to on needleturn applique I was finally underway. 


This is my progress so far, I still need to stitch down the bird and add the flower centres.  Then to do it all again on the other end. But coming together nicely so far.


I will show you the rest of my patterns & kits soon. Happy stitching xox


  1. It was great to see the tutors work up close. Love your table runner.......especially that birdy fabric.

  2. It was such a great weekend. The designers work was really beautiful, so nice to be able to touch and feel the projects. Can't wait to see your runner finished - lovely fabrics!
