stitching night...

Last night I went to my first stitching night at Meet me at Mikes on Bridge Road. It was absolutely awesome, I loved it. I finally got to meet Lara & Shannon, aka the other members of the Melbourne Fabric Mafia and lots of other lovely, crafty bloggers. We had yummie cupcakes, funny stories, champagne (not for me though), coffee, tea, lollies and of course heaps of stitching fun.

Here's a pic of my finished project plus some goodies from Mikes.



Lara & Pip have some more pictures of the night.

I'll soon be shooting piccies with this big baby...once I figure out how it works or once I can get Marcel to do it (he'll do it, but I want it straight away..not next week). Can you see the difference between the two pictures in this post...my little camera is soooo hopeless at taking night time pics.



almost forgot...something exciting arrived in the mail today.

Oh! You are so lucky, I wish we had a wonderful place like met me at mikes here in London! It sounds like so much fun and inspiring too.

OOoooh, big fancy camera ahoy! I'm so envious! Have fun with it :)

Lovely to finally meet you in person too - the Melbourne Fabric Mafia has expanded nicely ;)

Oohhh... Very sweet little stitcheries. I love little projects that give you instant gratification like these. Mixtape 2??? I recieved the first one and just loved it!!! The second one is definately on my must have list for this week (LOL).
Thanks for the great advice for the markets. Your link to posiepatchwork was that helpful that you've won a prize!!! All you have to do now is email me your address to bcsadmin@bigpond.net and I'll get your goodies in the post asap.

Cheers
Jodie

It sounds like Melbourne has quite the happening craft scene. What fun to connect with other like minded crafty women! I havn't found that group here in Vancouver yet, but I'm still on the lookout. Good work on the fabric prints! There are no printers in my city that will screen print fabric on the roll - I've already looked.
