Stitching Night!

I went to my first stitching night at Mikes last night and it was a heap of fun - definitely lived up to all the hype. And I got to meet some lovely people in person, including Bianca from Hollabee. Here's a couple o pics from the night:


Bianca doing her stitching - very cute.


Requisite cupcake shot and lovely freebies from Pip in the foreground (hedgie pincushion, scissors, pins and embroidery hoop).


Towards the end of the night. What a very cool shop - 'twas the first time I'd seen the Bridge road store.


The fruits o' my labour - bobbin girl still needs a stitchy speech bubble with something witty in it.

p.s. - I gave this blog a facelift the other day - for all those non-visiting subscriber folk out there who can't see it :)

I'm one of those Bloglines visitors I'm afraid.....it makes me a bit sad that I don't come up as myself in the stats, but I read soooooo many blogs that a solution really had to be reached!

Wow - this looks like great fun! I have been reading about these nights on a few different blogs and hope I can get the courage up to attend one soon! I love your cute little creations.

Yay you finished your second one too...bet you did it in the car. Can't wait to finish my second one & post piccies (tonight). Marcel's done with uni now, so I'm going to make him take pics of my stuff ;) or borrow one of his camera's.

Love your cushion covers in the next post.

Very impressed with the fruits of your labour. I love the cutlery on the napkin.

Your stitching night stuff looks so lovely, I love the knife, fork and spoon, and those cupcakes don't look half bad as well. I think when I'm a non teacher I will have to come along to one.

To make such fun embroidery and eat delicious cupcakes! Fabulous!

Fantastic! I also have a craft club, but our most recent meeting was a total no-show. I sat in my studio all alone but didn't mind as I had lots to do. Luckily I didn't make a yummy stack of cupcakes like you guys!

Hi Lara,
I saw your bobbin embroidery on Pip's blog and wondered who did it! I've wanted to embroider 'Bobbin Friends' since I first saw them...would it be okay to do them? I don't plan on selling any of my work.
