The countdown is on
Well just finished another 2 day retreat with a lovely group of ladies that have been visiting me for a few years now from Sydney, it was great to have them with me again. Apart from no electricity for a couple of hours this morning the retreat went really well, with them all working very hard on their choosen quilts. I look forward to seeing some photos once completed.
For some un known reason the power went out here at 7.10am and didn't come back on for over 4 hour, we cut and pinned, picked out borders etc to fill in the time, I am sure you can all understand how difficult it is to run a retreat without power, no lights, no sewing machines no irons, no music and no tea or coffee. I am sure there could be worst things to go wrong.
I have only 3 more retreats for the year, then my Christmas gathering on the 8th December, anyone is welcome to come along to this. We always have a great day with lots of yummy food, Christmas swap gifts, small projects to work on as well as a wonderful display of quilts around my garden.
Also a quick mention for anyone who was thinking of joining our instore Pin cushion swap, they need to be to me by the end of the month (or at least your name), at present there are about 45 pincushions that have been sent in from all over Australia, I will post a photo soon of them all.
Also just a quick mention to say that over the past 2 days we have had some absolutely lovely rain, not sure how much but, everything just looks so fresh and alive with the rain.
Until next time, happy sewing
