I'm all packed and ready to fly off to Queensland tomorrow to teach at the Creative Craft Retreat. The class will be making my Garden Delights Etui and I've been busy choosing all the fabrics for the kits. I hope they like my choices!
The bags are ready and labelled and I will pop the kits in when I arrive at the Retreat Centre:
Janelle, who organises the Retreat, asked if I would like to donate something for the gift bags - (isn't it exciting when you go to a Craft weekend and are given a bag of goodies on arrival!) - so I came up with a little stitchery that each lady will receive. Here they are all printed ready for packaging.
I made a couple of samples to give the ladies some ideas for using the stitchery. One became the centre of a little cushion cover:
and another one is now a mobile phone pocket on this bag:
As you can tell, I'm excited at the prospect of sharing the weekend with lots of ladies who are also passionate about craft!
Now .... just make sure the airline doesn't lose my suitcase!!!!!
