There is a student I work with whose favourite phrase is "it was the BEST DAY EVER" I thought of Fergus after yesterday's Stitchgathering because yes it really was the *Best day ever!!*
How to start?? How can I sum up months of eager anticipation, especially via social media and then 10 hours of fabulous stitching fun?
Well first I can thank Jo Avery (Mybearpawcraft) and the stitchgathering team. This was without doubt one of the best organised events I have been to, so many wonderful details I apologise if I miss any out.
First off the ticket. Oh no not your ordinary paper chuck it in the bin once you are finished ticket, whoah no. We all got a printed tote bag to embellish for a swap partner. They were incredible. We all started off with the same bag but the inventiveness, creativeness on display made each one unique. Chickens?!! Fish!! They were two of my favourites, here is a small small sample of what was on display, then we all got to take one home!
We had a readers choice vote for our favourite bag, the winning one was by Hiraku a sweet Japanese lady whose winning bag is bottom left in the mosaic directly above.
