More Let's Get Stitched........

On Friday night we went to one of the 'Nutters' rooms and had a pizza and games night. Here we are ready to play some games. We all took along a charm pack in a brown paper bag and played a game passing the paper bags back and forth around the circle. In the end we ended up with a different charm pack to the one we took.

This is a photo of Mel taking a photo of me as I am taking a photo of her. Great to meet you Mel and Christine after following your blogs for quite a while.

This is the charm I ended up with
We had to end the night quickly when we had a tap on the door saying we were being a bit too noisy.
On Saturday we had a free day so about 11 of us headed off to the city via tram to visit Luccello's. Teresa led the way as she had been there before. The shop was in a little arcade and up a few floors of stairs but was well worth it. It is such a gorgeous shop, very small but packed full of goodies.

It was lovely to finally meet Shez.

I bought a buckle and matching buttons (I feel a bag is in order with these)some pretty vintage buttons, Ric Rac  and a pattern book for 21/2 " charms. Don't you love the brown paper bag they came home in?
Later after coffee and cheesecake, we checked out a book store and I purchased this book.
Michelle and De, my roomies, were then catching a train to go out to Somerset Patchwork  at Mt Waverley so I joined them and after a 40 minute trip we arrived. The shop which has mostly reproduction fabrics and paper piecing patterns, was only a few minutes from the station. I forgot to take photos there but ended up buying a pattern and a few fabrics to start with. This pattern uses the Lemoyne star so got the set of templates as well. I don't need papers and can either stitch by machine or hand.

We then headed back to the city and a bit more of a look around before heading back to the hotel.
Sorry for the photo overload, still have our stitching day to show you and all the goodies that were in our bag but will leave that for next time.        Happy Stitching till then.................
