Finally in Blog Land

Well here we are finally Country Hart has made it into Blog Land

We have just had the most exciting weekend since Country Hart opened its shop front in December 2009 so we have decided to share it with the world

Country Hart hosted its very first weekend of stitching workshops this weekend and what a great weekend we all had After 5 months of planning Steve and I drove to Adelaide on Friday afternoon to meet Natalie Ross and Gail Pan who were our tutors for the weekend.

Each of the girls had designed 2 wonderful projects and we were in for a fantastic weekend.
Port Pirie had never had anything like this before and all the girls were very excited.
Friday night we set up the girls displays and Saturday Morning they were lined up ready to start.
After checking out the goodie bags and some quick intros it was into the sewing. Over the next few days I will post photos of the wonderful weekend of stitching and fun we all had

here is a little taste ..........

Tables all set and decorated with roses made from the fabric ranges the girls were using in their fantastic projects and the essential goodie bags which I hand made all 60 of them along with some help from my wonderful "Stitch 'n' Bitch" girls

stay tuned lots more photos and goss from our wonderful weekend coming up real soon
