I don't care if Monday's blue, Tuesday's grey and Wednesday too...

Hello!

(me far left, sporting my new 'geeky' specs)...

My Haberdashery Brooch Workshop, last Saturday. 
What a smashing day.
Work desks with all manner of interesting sewing ephemera...










Beautiful work made in a day, that sped by...








by these gorgeous ladies, all looking studious at their sewing...
 there was much fun, laughter, gossip, inspiration shared by the like minded ...
Thank you ladies for making the workshop such a wonderful day.
I will be announcing Workshop dates soon, I was thinking ... mid July?
Thanks for stopping by. x

Boy did I enjoy my day... still buzzing with creativity. Quite taxing really cos usually I make a sloth look positivitely hyper.

Just being in the company of greatness... 'But be not afraid...'

Thanks to you Viv, my family history wall hanging is coming on a pace.

Joanna said...

Looks very creative and great fun! Love the specs (I refrain from adding the 'they make you look intelligent' quip, only because, of course, you already look wonderfully brainy!).

Jayne said...

Just dying to know what the hanging thing that was receiving piccies with pins was. Having read the comments I'm guessing it was Letticeleaf's family history wall hanging...please please get her to post a pic of the finished product, looks gorgeous so far and what a great idea. Nik

The Pea Pod said...

This workshop looks wonderful! We wish we could have attended the fun event! We love the chatter and laughter that comes over a good sewing project. Paired with a hot cup of tea, it's the perfect remedy to brighten up a day.

We just posted about our sewing day too! Love seeing all these wonderful projects that ladies are working on.

Thanks for sharing and bringing us smiles ^_^
