…….stays at retreat!….Isn’t that how the story goes????
Well, that’s my excuse for not taking any photos anyway…………I got soooooooo caught up in finishing what I was doing, that all I took photos of, were my projects! (I wonder if it has anything to do with the 1am bedtimes and 6.30am starts!!!!! hehehe)
I can tell you this is how we set out with all our gear…..and this was only three out of the four ladies’ stuff…..it was a real ‘squeeze’ fitting it all in……and yes, the inside was full to overflowing too!!!!
I can tell you the food was so plentiful, I had to go home in another car so we didn’t break the suspension in the one I arrived in!!!
I can tell you the weather was cool-ish and brisk but beautiful during the day and when I went outside of the hall we were working in at night, to ring my beloved, a cheeky possum, as big as a cat, casually strolled past me, glanced back once it passed, and climbed the tree I was standing near! I can also tell you they liked dancing on the rooftops in the middle of the night!!!! *sheesh*
AndI can tell you that I DID finish most of what I set out to do…..
this flimsy of a queen-sized birthday quilt as a gift for a friend’s 50th Halloween themed party made from a Turning Twenty pattern….
if you look closely there’s a lot of Halloween themed fabrics…
and the big black block will have a huge spider appliqued onto it with the details of my friend’s birthday…..I do hope she likes it!
I can tell you I fused the pieces for this wall hanging….
…which will use free-motion quilting to bring out the design details in this Aussie scene wall hanging (I hope it works!!!! LOL)
I can tell you I finished these cute little projects…
….a journal cover and pencil case featuring this gorgeous fabric….
(Now I have somewhere to store my pigma pens and blue markers and record my quilting ideas!)
And I can tell you I started a deep dish pincushion which is still a work in progress….no photos for that either!!!!
But I can’t tell you what went on at retreat…..because we all know 'What goes on at retreat, stays at retreat!’
