Fun Weekend....

I had a fun weekend sewing.. Starting with  FNSI with Wendy  and you can see what I did in my previous post but then spending a whole weekend at our "Stay at Home Retreat"...

We are sew lucky to be able to hire the Seniors hall for our workshops etc which gives us lots of space and all the facilities we need..

After setting up, making a cuppa and chatting I got to work on this...

It took most of the weekend but I'm pleased to say after several hiccups the flimsy is finished....

Measures  64" X 80"   a very pretty community quilt. It's amazing how a pattern looks out two different fabrics..   You can see the other one I make  HERE..

Some of the ladies busy working  .....

Look at this intricate work......

oh ! lots of  paper piecing .......

beautiful hand embroidery

sorry thought I took more photos but I was just keep sew busy .  Happy to say that I did manage to work on this project before going home...

Thanks to everybody for a fabulous weekend.....

Must away now and do some unpacking and organising in the Cave .  Going to a Two Day workshop in Geraldton on  Wed /Thurs  with Helen Stubbings.... Now exciting.......

Happy Stitching

Hugz  Maria :)
