There was Lorraine and Lorraine(Loz).
The following photos show lots of people stitching which is why I wonder why I didn't finish a single project. Could be something to do with I talk too much.


Megan relaxing in a comfy chair but still stitching.


The Moonta girls.

Ali & Anne


Hard at it

Robyn, Natalie & Megan

The girls


There was Marc who was incognito for the weekend.


Peta brought a friend with her the mother had been killed by a car and she was feeding this little fellow with a bottle she was no trouble at all when not having a bottle she was happy to hang around in a pillow case.

and finally last but certainly not least the man that feeds us.
Trish's husband he wanted me to make sure I got the T shirt in.
If you can't read it it says
"I don't need to be educated my wife knows it all"


It was a great weekend now all I have to do is finish off what I started.

Hi Leanne, Great post on a fantastic weekend ... I had a wonderful time. That little kanga is so cute. Love the shot of Mark at the end. Might have to get some of your photos ... they are much better than mine.
Cheers Sue

I heard it was great! Are you and Loz having a fight? If not, you could have made some money Leanne! I reckon she would have paid you not to include that photo of her!

Looks like a wonderful time was had by all!

May Kristin said...

Oooohh, what a wonderful week-end you had! I feel just a little envious... ;-)
Sounds a little familiar with the not finishing things in class because of to much talking thing...!
Look forward to see what you made!

Looks like you all had a great time. What a sweet Joey!


I'm jealous also! Not only the sewing, but the baby - you sure wouldn't see anything like that here in Ohio! If you did - it would be me with the pillowcase.

Thanks for sharing - it looks like sooooooo much fun!
