Four Fabulous Days + Hexies

I have just spent four fabulous days at Shoalwater on retreat with my W.A. Scquilters Group the "Barnowls"…

We went for walks, swims, went out shopping and for cafe coffees. Also it was lovely for family to pop in for visits…

Saturday night it was “Back To School” dress up for dinner..

Everyone looked fabulous even the wayward pregnant schoolgirl..

Even though we were keep busy having fun we did manage to get lots of sewing done.
