Lakes Entrance Weekend Retreat!

Spending some time with these lovely ladies from all over

Victoria on retreat at the beautiful Lakes Entrance,

organised by Lily Lane.

 

 

Who doesn’t love a weekend of stitching, sewing,

catching up with like minded friends and making new ones.

(Sorry for the blury pics)

 

 

 

Show and tell after lunch, these star blocks produced from the morning and

with Jen displaying blocks for her version of Illusions.

 

 

Another show and tell this week is from Lynne,

who emailed this pic (top) of her version

of my Morning Glory design.

Love those bright colours, thanks for sharing Lynne.

 

Class Show & Tell!

 

At a recent sewing day at

The Sewing Bee Cafe, lots of ladies who have been

attending my classes brought along the blocks

they had been working on over the holidays.

I love to see these quilts coming together.

Well done ladies, your blocks are looking great.

Finished quilts & Show and Tell!

It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of October

and yet we still need the heater going.

Overnight temps as low as 3°C with rain, hail and some places snow.

Stitching by the fire

 

The perfect weather to be inside stitching.

This quilt just back from the quilter needs to be bound.

And another day, another quilt that needs binding.

Some wildlife from the Aussie bush, where we are staying.

The kangaroo has a joey in her pouch but unfortunately didn’t come out for us to see.

The magpies are residents that we see all the time.

Winter Blooms has been very popular this year, with another fun weekend

In this huge classroom and plenty of table space,

everyone has lots of space to spread out without being cramped.

Along with the fun and laughter, lots of new techniques were learnt

and soon 3D petals and flowers started to appear.
