A Great Retreat.

The retreat this weekend was so relaxing. The company was great, food and drink delicious. 
We are all busy stitching .

Time for a cuppa and some chatting.

Our neighbouring Patchwork group had invited us to do a "Monochromatic Masterpiece"
challenge. This is what I put together, only needs the borders put on. Then sandwiched and quilted.

This is my quilt I am making for one of the Camp Quality children coming here for their holiday in November. It also needs a border.

The weekend was make even more perfect by the fact my dear friend ,who is travelling around Aussie with her DH, called in to surprise me. Nicky spent time with us at the retreat and today we went into Geralton to have a girlie day out. They are off tomorrow on the last leg of their journey home to Kambalda.
