Weekend stitching – part 2

Sunday was Woolly Bits day at Millrose!

The day started well for me; not two minutes inside the door and I’d already amassed this little group of goodies!

20140430-162419.jpgThere was some lovely show and tell…..

Katrina has finished her Firefly

20140430-162548.jpgisn’t it gorgeous?! and the bottom blocks are GJ’s and she’s well on the way to finishing hers.

Joy was busy punching out circles, quarter inch circles to be precise!!

20140430-162806.jpgJan was embellishing

20140430-162849.jpgand GJ put the finishing touches to her covered bag

20140430-162954.jpgThe shop was looking gorgeous, decked out in Autumn hues!

20140430-163203.jpgLunch time came round very quickly; this was the view from our table

20140430-163312.jpgand we happily tucked into our meals

20140430-163400.jpg(Last month I’d been in Sydney; apparently everyone sat waiting patiently after being served their meals, until someone realised I wasn’t there with camera at the ready and they could eat immediately!!!)

After lunch there was a special surprise for Katrina’s birthday!

20140430-163631.jpgThen all too soon it was time to pack away our sewing and head home in the beauty of an
Autumn sunset.

    Lot’s of lovely wool play! It’s great to see close ups of those wonderful stitches. How clever to punch out circles.

    The tool that cuts out the circles where do you find it?   Martha Mumaw http://martha-sewwhatsnewcom.blogspot.com

  5. Hi Meredithe, Can you explain how the circle cutter works and where can it be purchased, another gadget that I need for Santas. Thank you.
