Glenrose Cottage WIP, Natalie Bird Workshop

This is the Charming Stars runner I worked on at Glenrose Cottage. Took ages to finally decide where the blocks should go.  I also quilted my bag for the Natalie Bird workshop, just put the finishing touches to it when I got home (photo in previous post).
The other girls worked on some gorgeous projects but must show you a photo of these two beauties who after a questionable night scrubbed up quite well by the time they headed for home.

Jenny and Helen made these girls with the faces painted by Helen. We all wanted them to come home with us. No such luck though, their Mum ma's wouldn't let them.

The following Sunday, Sunday Stitchers had our workshop with Natalie Bird. The two projects for the day were a Tablet Holder and a Blackbird Purse.

Some of Natalie's work on display.

Lots of lovely projects to buy.
My purchases for the day.

A Christmas pattern, some prairie linen for a bag, stitching linen and some Tilda stripe.

Some of the ladies working hard on their projects. The last photo is of the Sunday Stitchers group with some of our Natalie Bird finishes.
We had the most wonderful day and Natalie is such a lovely person, I really enjoyed talking to her about all sorts of things throughout the day.
Well must go, tomorrow I am going to Lets Get Stitched with designers, Fiona Ransley, Vicki Tucek, Joy Coey and Dawn Hay. This year it's in Brisbane so not far to travel this time. It is from Thursday until Monday. I am looking forward to meeting up with all the people who attended LGS in Melbourne last year.
Will be back to tell you about it after the weekend. Lots planned so it will be fun..........
