Sew It Together

I always had intentions of starting a blog…just needed a push in the right direction! With Sheridan organising Sew It Together 2011 in Sydney, I knew I just had to go, but all participants were required to have a blog. So thanks Sheridan for getting my wheels in motion!

The Crafting session last Saturday was filled with loads of fun and inspiration. There were 52 women all sewing, chatting and eating (of course!). I was late to sign up for the Name tag swap, so Megan was kind enough to arrange a last minute swap with Dolores. Here’s the badge I made. I love binding quilts, but making a teeny tiny one was a challenge!

And here’s the cute one I got in return! (Can you guess the colour theme for this year?).

I also signed up for the great sample swap organised by the ‘Queen of Swaps’ Cass. I whipped up these fold up linen tote bags from the book ‘I love  patchwork’).

Look at the lovely gifts I got in return. A beautiful zippered bag from Marina at Wink Designs.

A clever tea bag wallet from Sheridan.

The cutest mushroom pin cushion from Sarah at Gifts Created.

A mini heat pack from Cass and a pretty necklace from Kylie.

Belinda and I also managed to squeeze in a beginner’s crochet lesson from Cath ..how cute is this?

Thanks to the huge list of sponsors who kindly donated the best prizes and let me walk home with a huge supply of free goodies!

Finally a big thanks to Sheridan (and Donna) for the countless hours spent organising an awesome day and (dinner). Can’t believe I have to wait a whole year for SIT Canberra!
