SDDO 2019


The Quilters Angel (which happens to be my favourite LQS) hosts a wonderful weekend "Stitchers Dream Day Out" 

Last weekend was this years and both days were fully booked....

A school hall is hired for the weekend and transformed, bows are tied and tables set....


Bags filled with treasures, flowers and pretty tables....


The stage is all set up to look lovely too...


This year's theme was Vintage Market....


A little corner shop is open...


I loved all the little extra's..... 


…. to fit the theme...


Beautiful old trunks...


.. and spools of thread....


These are the fabrics used for the day...


All day tea and slices.....


.. and the designers had displays of their work....
Leslie and Kate from Faeries in my Garden.....


 amazing needlework....

I loved this Alice in Wonderland stitched cloth...

Katie and Pam from Cottage Garden Threads was the other designers for the day


Very cute... (they distribute patterns for Hare's Nest)


Silly silly me didn't take pictures of the projects that were provided .... there was a bag, a needlecase, a cushion.... hmmmm  

Was treated to this lovely sunset on the way home.  We still have a lot of dust and smoke around.... which does increase the redness of the sky …. beautiful...



It was a beautiful weekend... so many happy friendly women coming to enjoy themselves.    Days like these are good for the soul.....

Righto, Gotto Go....  time for that second cup of coffee... then quilting time!

The Quilters Angel knows how to receive guests. Oh. My! Everything is so perfect. A feast for the eyes, and the mouth I see. I love the gazillion spools, wow! I'm in love with that bee. Adorable. Just look like a glorious week end. I'm glad you were able to join because the limited seating must fill up really quickly. ;^)

They really put a lot into the event, as well as goodies and vendors, wish we had things like that here.

It looks wonderful. I always enjoy it that little bit more when the organisers put in some extra effort to make the venue look special.
