to meet and do a fabulous stitching workshop with Sue Spargo!!!!...
(another of my stitching idols's)....
first - we arrived into Auckland, then we went via Robyn's shop enroute to our 3 day Retreat
at Long Bay , north of Auckland!
fabulous views and gorgeous weather and a top location.
I was very excited to meet with Sue Spargo as have followed her patterns and books for many years.-
We had 3 great days of stitching with a great bunch...
lots of cottons/embellishments etc
and lots of ideas.
We each had to work on our own creative design,
still in early stages - so will be back with more to post down the track!!
Our table was made up of these great ladies,
Debbie/Robyn/Cindy/Charmaine/Suzie/Myself and Judy (sorry she is on the end and pic not displaying her).
We have 3 very creative days and one of the days we had to create shapes with freezer paper - no drawings - way off my comfort zone but all fun. I also took my last year's BOM to s how Sue which I have pictured here.
It was such a great workshop and a great team of ladies.
Some of whom Suzie and I had met last year.
A great few days - now back to the Oz and back to reality.
