Then there were 3…

Designers going to be at the Immerse Stitching day/weekend, and 3 Sewing Sisters attending – YAY! Janelle arrived safely and soundly on Wednesday, and was greeted with great Joy by 3 out of 4 of my children. The afternoon was spent giving and receiving lots of hugs and kisses, chatting and catching up on news, receiving of gifts from the West and planning out 6 days worth of fun. It didn’t take long for the sewing machines to come out – me on my Bernina and Janelle on the good old Janome – it’s a good thing we had 2 machines to use! We decided to make a modified version of the Pleated Beauty Bag by Amy Karol. My fabric of choice for this project was ‘Eva’ by Basic Grey (for Moda), and Janelle made my sisters Christmas present out of a printed linen blend that I bought at an Amitie sale possibly 2 years ago (or maybe she wouldn’t like it after all :P ).




Today the SS’s were reunited and spent the day hugging, laughing, fabric shopping, driving, eating, more fabric shopping etc… doing what we do best! We visited Catharina's Country Collection and purchased some lovely autumn fabrics (that were on SALE), and Janelle managed to find some more Babushka fabric that she didn’t already have in her vast collection. The larger printed fabric may just turn into an extra piece of hand luggage for the trip back. The next stop was to The Patchwork Teahouse in Warburton. We had a delicious 2 course lunch and did a bit more shopping – I got some more ‘Recess’ and ‘Farmers Market’ fabrics that were on sale.

Hi Girls,
How nice it is to be together again. I love the bags that katherine and Janelle created and the babushka fabric. Your bags inspired Hannah and I to make a reversible shoulder bag for a present last week and I am now in the process of creating one for Hannah!!! Have a great week and fun at the the stitch in. Lots of love Robyn
