My feet haven’t touched the ground since I got home from the most amazing weekend I’ve had in a very long time… the Let’s get Stitched event in Melbourne!
See those happy faces? I enjoyed their smiles from Thursday through to Sunday while the majority of us stayed at Rydges in Preston. We had days out on Friday and Saturday before commencing our stitching day on the Sunday. Why haven’t I mentioned it before? Because I was one of two ‘mystery’ designers and had to keep the secret all to myself… it was hard, I can tell you!!
I was not the only ‘mystery’ to be revealed on the day (that sounds so much more glamorous than intended!), sweet Marilyn Duncan was the second mystery designer, and then who popped out from behind the curtain? Rosalie Quinlan! There was a lot of excitement and squealing in the room! I borrowed this next photo from Jenny (thanks Jen! x)
I’ve known the majority of these ladies for several years, from our days together in Among the Gum Trees and through blogging… we have chatted on the phone and sent each other gifts… but this was the first time we had all met up at the same time in person! I was so elated to finally meet a very dear friend of mine, Jenny,and to share a room with her and one of the sweetest gals you could ever hope to meet, Wendy! We got on like a house on fire and chatted to the wee hours of the morning while sharing cups of tea and witty anecdotes. Sheesh it was FUN!
Our first selfie together, me, Jenny and Wendy!
I have borrowed these next photos from Jenny as well… they are pics of all the lovely ladies who attended the stitching day. They travelled the length and breadth of the country… and a couple even made it across the pond from New Zealand (they have the cutest accents!!!)
This was both my first stitching event and my first teaching event… and I was blown away by the kindness, generosity and friendship offered by the wonderful women who attended. There was a lot of love and support in that room! I have come away with many more friends and a bigger heart… thank you to ALL of you ladies for making it so special! x
I have some more photos to share of the weekend and of the project I designed for those attending… in the meantime I’m still waiting for my feet to touch the ground!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and take the opportunity to create some precious memories!
Till next time! Vikki xo
