Forgot to show you the pics from the journal class!

A couple of weekends ago I had a journal class in Levin and we had such a great weekend! 
The girls all had such very different themes for their journals which means no two journals looked similar. Of course there was lots of kaos, very controlled kaos though with papers and fabrics and embellishments over every surface! 
Don't they look so busy. It was lovely to have girls come from all around the countryside to do the class. Julie and June from the Hawkes Bay, Susan from Marton, Trish from Masterton and Jules from Whanganui. Lisa came from Palmerston North, Wendy came from Otaki and Cheryl, Jude and Rangi all live here in Levin. 
Above is Rangi's journal. She decided to use the wee gift bag I gave each of the students in her journal. Great idea! 
This is the inside cover of Wendy's journal, love the colours, don't you? 
I think this was some of Trish's journal pages. I love how she is making that tea bag work for her! 
This pile of goodness belongs to Lisa, loving the pinks and all the little bits hanging out! 
This belongs to Cheryl, she's working on the cover. Lovely vintage colours. 
And we had lovely morning and afternoon teas made by Trish, the owner of Krazy Cow Quilts. She squeaked her way up and down the store with the tea trolley laden with yummy food! 
It was a great weekend and we all had loads of fun! Thank you to everyone! 

Happy stitching everyone!

Another class today...

Today I spent the day with the girls at Kowhai Quilters in Feilding. They were going on a road trip... Here's some of their work from today.

They were right into making the project their own and Barbara made a small wall hanging and Joyce was making just one row with rolling hills and a fence with her letterbox. It was her place from the roadside. Great idea! 

Marina got very sporty with this little number! She was aiming to add over 30 cars to hers, one for each car she and her husband had owned! 

Thanks for having me girls, it was a lovely day!
