Let's Get Stitched...March, Hobart

Here I am back in Hobart catching up on my last post from Let's Get Stitched, Hobart 2016
Saturday morning it was off to the well known Salamanca Markets


I bought this Myrtle timber salt grinder for my DS
and saw a timber cut out bicycle




Happened upon a real live Faery Shop, all pretty and pink

I meandered up to Battery Point and saw a Ship's Wheel in an Antique Shop



Saturday night it was off to a Chinese Restaurant for dinner



Later on I had to try a Green Tea Creme Brûlée with Gold Leaf at Salamanca Square



Sunday morning it was off to the Let's Get Stitched day


'Rell was one of the surprise Guest Designers



I purchased her little kit


for this sweet little Dilly Bag

Joy teaching me to embroider roses


Caught up with Val who I made the Name Badge for

Vicki in the centre and me on the right.......the girl's name on the left just escapes me
and a group pic below
(I'm back right)

I had a wander around Constitution Dock and saw the Spiegeltent




















Some dock scenes above 


This cool blackboard in one of the Pubs
You wouldn't to have had too much to drink to read this
Bad enough trying to read it as it is lol


Monday morning and it's time to leave Hobart






On board the plane


 And after some hours back here at The Bay
I had a lovely trip.....met some lovely people and hope to do it again one day!!!

 Happy Stitching......Dzintra

What a great trip! Not sure what I enjoyed most... The fairy shop, the pictures of the harbor, the kit you got, the funny jingle....it all looks like so much fun. I know how much you enjoy your outings. Have a great week, my friend.

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
