Much laughter and fun was had at The Quilted Crows Gathering at Campania, near Hobart on Saturday. Anni of Hatched and Patched and Natalie of The Birdhouse were this years guest designers and there were some lovely projects on offer as well as Leonie and Deidres’ great projects as usual.

many Tasmanian bloggers met up and it was great to put faces to blog names.

Tasmania Bloggers were- Jo from Jo in Tas, me –Helen’s Hugs, Alex from Stitchin School Girl, Fiona from My Beautiful Girls, Leanne from Lizzie’s Page, Kathy from Harmony Junky, Christine from Auntie Quaint Quilts, Cathy from Highland Quilter and Sarah from If only I had Chocolate. And if you look back through on many of these blogs you will see their Nice People Nice Things progress as many of the girls are also stitching along with us.

This was one of Anni’s projects – made from wool, we are doing a swap with these projects with many of the bloggers above each making 6 of one of them so we end up with the full set. I haven’t had time to do a swap for years but am looking forward to this. Thanks Sarah for organising it.

This was another of Anni’s projects, a lovely simple bag.

I managed to get most of Natalies’ designs stitched even though I didn’t arrive until lunch time due to Miss M winning a radio competition to meet the Olympians in the morning.

It is so “nice” to get together at these gatherings and enjoy good food, good company and good stitching with other likeminded ladies.  I shall look forward to the next one eagerly.

hugs, Helen

  1. Your little stitchery blocks are all so full of joy. I just love them. Haven’t done any yet, but I have them all saved and plan to do each one. Thank you so much for sharing. YOU are a “nice person”.!
