Stitching on the Bay - Part 2...

Hi there...I hope you all have had a lovely weekend and been able to fit in a little bit of doing your favourite thing...this weekend I took myself off to see the move Julie & Julia...
thoroughly enjoyed myself...went out and bought the novel after the movie...then a cookbook...
and thinking now...perhaps I'll work through a cookbook...just like Julie did...and then blog it...
I even checked out Julie's blog and left a comment...
When you get to her blog...have a look at links on the right hand side also...the Julia and Julia project is over there...
Might start off the New Year doing this...see how I go!!!
Further to my last post...here is Part 2 of Stitching On The Bay with pics of 2 delightful shops that were there...
Above is Anni Downs' Advent Calendar which was on the display put on by Steph at Moruya...

A gorgeous French General display...








Some of the Stitchery display





As the day had a Christmas theme above and below is part of the display put on by Emma at Country Inspirations...



The above 3 pics are from Emma's...
And my purchases...the above Tilda books full of lovely inspirational stuff...gorgeous patterns...these books are just an absolute delight...ideal over a cuppa and planning more projects!!!

Lovely pink berries I purchased along with these pink and green Christmas themed Fat Quarters...

As JoJo is so into Christmas I couldn't resist this little decorative Christmas spade for her!!!
A great day was had...I thoroughly enjoyed myself and looking forward to the next one in Autumn next year!!!
Thank You Fiona and Sylvia!!!

Wonderful that you were able to spend this time doing something that's so much fun! I love the books, patterns and berries... and mostly getting such great inspirations.

I've been wanting to see Julie & Julia too. I love Meryl Streep... and Julia Childs. The idea of working through a cookbook is so fun. It will be interesting to see how closely the movie did or didn't follow the book. xxVicki

Hello Dzintra, Lovely photo's of your time away stitching. I am so glad you went to see the movie. I can't wait to see you "practice chopping onions"!!!! JoJo's little spade is just so cute,it's a pity she can't go out and dig some snow with it. Have a great day.
