Linda picked me up at 8am on Friday for our 4 day retreat at Avalon. Such a pretty place tucked away in the hills at Toodyay.
We arrived at round 4pm after a little detour through Midland for some shopping and nice lunch. We quickly unpacked the car and set up as everyone was already busy cutting , sewing and chatting . Hmm! some were txt too…
One of our members, Loris, was making a PJ Doggy Bag for her youngest GS and asked if others would like to join her. Six of us sewed along.
this is my poor guy before stuffing.
looking better but still needing a nose…
with all his friends sitting on the back of the lounge chair,
Oh! wait Beatrice’s Purple fella is now ready to join with the others for the outdoor photo shoot.
The old fella on the right is about 12 yrs and came along sew we could see how he went together.. Made it a bit easier....
I have taken this Kit with me to several retreats over the years and this time I have finally cut and stitched the Snowballs. Wonder when I will put them together…
Also managed to do some secret sewing on my Summertime mini.
Some of us stayed up till the wee small hours
even though Helen's glasses lost an arm (easily fixed with tape ah! )
and Beatrice was feeling the cold….
We finally went to bed round 1am....
Linda pinning her quilt.
Val’s “Hexagon”Jelly Roll Flimsy,
and she also made the cute Bunny on the chair. At 86 Val is amazing and has no intention of slowly down, only hope I am still as active as her at that age.
Jan M’s “Forrest Path” Jelly Roll Flimsy.
Pam’s sewing table mat….
Jan A’s “Bag” for her GD1
Monday morning the room all packed up
and we are ready for the drive home through the lovely misty morning.
What a fabulous 4 days of just being spoilt, I loved it.
