OPAM, Craft show & Friends in stitches.....

 Finally finished putting these Christmas Bon Bon's together, I just have four more to stitch up and then they can be put together as well.....so four more finishes for OPAM this month.....just under the wire!
 I also went to the Craft show on Friday and these are just a few things I brought home with me, I haven't put everything here as some of the things I bought are being sent for a couple of swaps I'm in and need to be secret for a little longer.....I was really excited to buy the new line by Bonnie & Camille "Scrumptious" it certainly lives up to it's name!
 Then Saturday I attended "Friends in Stitches" at the Novotel in Glen Waverly and was lucky enough to be able to get a photo with Leanne Beasley one of the designers for the day as well as sit and sew with my sister Anne :) I had a ball!!
 Here's Anne trying to stitch while I'm trying to chatter, stitch and take photo's lol....
 I met up with another bloggy buddy Shez of http://shez-enjoyinglife.blogspot.com/ she always makes me smile and I always have a great time when stitching with her :)
 This is part of our table, (L to R) Pam, Shez and Claire........
 this is Sharon from http://lilabellelane.blogspot.com/ finally managed to get a photo of her face even if it is looking down lol.....
I love Sharon's version of Rosalie Quinlan's new BOM  "Best friends Forever" Shaz has used the new line "Scrumptious" and it looks divine! I have this BOM but wont start it till I can access larger lengths of Scrumptious  which wont be till later in the year :)
Lets just say by Sunday I was one very tired stitcher! I have more photo's but I'll do another post with more photo's later in the week when I have a bit more time and I'm not so tired :)
