And I also got to see this beautiful bag in the flesh too………
Wendy also has a "delicious" published book full of projects of her exquisite work which you can purchase along with a stack of patterns and kits HERE……..
Wendy thought she might do some stitching as I drove, but instead she enjoyed seeing some 'foreign' countryside including the 130 km stretch of the Coorong that she knew nothing about. And I think the tongues wagged the entire 5 hours so there was no time to stitch! We stopped at Meningie for lunch (where I sampled some delicious Coorong Mullet), and were both taken by this house - a typical historic South Australian house and garden……..
Wendy was very nervous about her opening festival speech but she did a splendid job and it was a lovely evening……..

Some shops were in darkness so I will have to go back in the daylight to photograph some more. So I had better get cracking and on to class. More later x
