SATURDAY.....

 This is what I got up to on saturday........An early birthday gift from my sister Anne!
 A day filled with like minded women............beautiful displays,sharing time with my sister Anne,talking,laughter,cake,coffee and a scrummy lunch what more could a girl want in a day out!
 Gorgeous and generous designers..............on the round table in front are some of the goodies that were in our goody bags,all of them were kits so we could start on anyone of them on the day!
 More displays to feast the eyes on................I soooo wanted to take this tree home with me! and I loved the little bird in the cage too,must source this pattern out soon.
 and more..................sensory overload at its best!!
 and even more............soooo fell in love with these softies.
 This is the project I decided to work on while at the event........A design by Melly & Me.
 A picture of how far I got on the day.....
A close up of the cute ladybird,boy did I go cross eyed trying to satin stitch his dots lol,Melly kindly came over and showed us an easier way to get perfect circles....to bad I'd already finished mine by then lol.
I'll have more photo's to show you later as well as a little giveaway with something I got from the show that cost me nothing as it was a freebie with my purchases for the day but something I already have but you might not.....so swing by here tomorrow night and see what's on offer,there also may be a couple of bits & bobs thrown in with it as well from the days purchases :)
