It was great to catch up with the girls from Beaudesert as well as many who had travelled over the NSW border to be there. We spent most of the weekend laughing, sewing, eating and admiring all the beautiful things everyone was working on. Below are a couple of collages of what was worked on, and some of the place mats made for the retreat challenge.
|Block Bag, Miniature Twister, Tapestry Bag, French General Quilt, Flannel Shaggy Quilt, Twister Quilt., I Spy blocks and Quilt.|
|A few of the 24 place mats made by each quilter attending the retreat. The one top right won the challenge.|
|Dollies, pin cushions, my badge, all wonderful memento's of our retreat.|
Before I close I would like to show you the beautiful gifts I have received from Kali, my partner in the Let's Celebrate swap, run by Karen from Mrs Martins Quilt Shop. The first swap was for Easter.
I opened mine on Monday as we head off to the coast for the Hot Rod Nationals on Thursday and will be away for Easter. This has given me a couple of days to enjoy looking at them before we go. I can't show you what I sent Kali as yet because she is going to open hers tomorrow at her quilt group.
So that is it for me tonight. Hope you are organised for Easter as there is not long to go now.........
Happy Easter Stitching everyone....... Hugs..........
