My stitching day out with a friend

Up nice and early, grab a coffee and hit the road. Through the city peak hour traffic and then we arrive. Yes, e are in Narre Warren East for a Gail Pan & Debbie Busby stitching day.
Here is my friend Nikki happily getting ready to stitch....

Here is my friend Nikki happily getting ready to stitch.. She was surprised when I took her photo

Jo & Illene

Then I caught up with the sweet, lovely Illene from

It's always good to catch up with blogging friends.

It was the first time all 3 of us attended one of these days

Before we opened our goody bags I grabbed a photo with GAIL & DEBBIE BUSBY.

Of course there was a shop to spend 

Beautiful projects designed by Debbie from

some of Gail's work for show..

This is my first project I decided to work on. I have not used wool before so this was a great introduction for me....
I decided to start with the wool project for the day instead of a stitchery. There was a choice of patterns to start with. 4 in all. 2 wool kits/patterns were included, 2stitchery patterns were drawn out and you could buy the finishing kits for them. There was also a wool pin cushion for us all. Made by Debbie, a container of lil pins, a reindeer cookie, a pencil with a cotton reel topper and a Xmas ball decoration. We were all very spoilt.
I will add a photo of the contents of my goody bag later when I show my finished elf...

I was going to join in last night with but I was just so tired after I got home.
So my days wool work is what is going to count. 

I know of a few more bloggers going to the workshop so I decided to do this post after they had been.
Shez, Cheryl & Melody will have a great day.
I'm sure there will be lots more photos on their blog.
