More Perth photos

Thanks to Jo for sending me this photo I will treasure it always.

And a few more photos -none of them are of the work that I did in the workshop because I need to finish them off but I will try to get them done soon---I promise.
Here is Maggie demonstrating how to do it ---------------

A shot of the ladies working hard on their pieces -which is what I should have been doing instead of taking photos.
The lady in the front of the photo in the burgundy top is Dorothy Boxall who comes from Perth and is one of the many friends that I have made while doing Dale's online workshops.

More swoopy photos taken from the balcony window-----

And another one.

No more swoopies left ---at present anyway.

That's a lovely photo of you and Maggie, Doreen - I would treasure it too. I just love your swoopy ones - very clever. Looking forward to seeing the things you started on the workshops.

Janet said...

You have the most beautiful smile! I can just see how happy you are to be there.

Love those swoopy photos!

I 'see' those swoopie photos being translated into needlework...they would be beautiful!

Robin Mac said...

Of course you are proud of the photo - taking pride of place on the wall? Love the swoopy photos, I can imagine some pieces from yourcreative mind coming up. Cheers, Robin

I agree with Janet that you have the most lovely smile (and I should know as I have been lucky enough to see it in person).
It sounds like you had a wonderful time. So glad you liked Perth - and the glorious weather.
Did you have excess luggage to take back to Canberra after your trip to The Thread Studio? :) :) :).
Love those swoopie shots too!

Love the swoopy pics Doreen! You and Steven look lovely and relaxed in that photo. While I'm pleased for you to have had the chance to take a workshop with our Maggie, I'm envious as well! Hmmm... workshop with Maggie as well as shopping at The Thread Studio... sounds like heaven to me!

Can't wait to see what you come up with from what you learned.
