Edit..... Just reading Loz's account of the weekend and I realised I forgot to mention Sharon's Mum, Mavis, who helped looked after us all. Sorry Mavis. You are a star! We all fell in love with you (Well, some of us just fell in love with your cooking!). No wonder Sharon is so cool - it's genetic! (Bodes well for you Shontelle!) On with the retreat commentary.........
I'm sure you are going to be seeing quite a bit about this retreat in the blogs. There were a few bloggers there. Like Vicky (seen in the left of the photo, sitting next to Jean), Loz, Jan, me, and of course Sharon and Shontelle who organised the retreat. Vicki and Jan are both fairly new to blogging so go check them all out! (If you are a blogger and were there email me and I will include you here) There were great projects available to do at the retreat, but I chose to finish a project I had already started. The light was a bit dull when I got home from Wallaroo, but here are the photos Miss 17, Mr 15 and 9 and my Bradley managed to take for me.
Lecien flower rectangles, pink and green spotty sashings and cornerstones, and pink ric rac edging. Who could this quilt possibly be for? Yes! This is granddaughter's new quilt. Hope she likes it. It is my first "quilting the Kellie Wulfsohn way" project I have finished. I have made some mistakes on it, but overall I am pretty happy with it. I think also that I have improved as I have practised on this quilt, so will have to get another started!!!
These are the men I currently live with. (Mr 15, Mr 9 and my Bradley.) They are crazy, which is pretty lucky for me because I have been told I am pretty crazy too. Miss 17 is holding the camera.
And a close up of my quilting (don't look too hard!) and the ric rac. I'm off now to get some rest. (It has been a BIG weekend. Wallaroo, back to Adelaide for the arrival of granddaughter, Wallaroo, and finally back to Adelaide to rest!) What are my plans for next week? Well....... I think I'd like to sew!
