Relaxing at Retreat....Part 1

Last week I was busy cutting projects ready to take to our annual Retreat at Avalon in Toodyay.

I like the Emus in the Everlasting garden ...

Early mornings are very cold and there's usually a thick fog.

Perfect weather to be inside and keep busy sewing.....

and our lovely member Val  (centre) even got her huge flimsy ready to pin...

with the help of Vicki , Allison and Jenny ( on table).. and I cant believe that Val got the quilting completed...

Well must away to do some more sewing but will show you what ladies have been working on tomorrow.

Happy Stitching

  1. I can't wait to see! how fun to be on retreat

  2. What fun! I can honestly say I've never seen an emu at retreat!! My next retreat is 2 months away, and I'm already planning my projects. LOL! I just love retreats.

  3. I have never been on a retreat. How nice to get many hands to help and pin a quilt, it is my least favourite part of making a quilt.

  4. Retreats are the best!! Great help gettinv that quilt sandwiched. Love those misty mornings.

  5. Looks like a lovely spot for a weekend of sewing.

  6. so much will get done... retreats are great for that... great job with the pinning ladies...

  7. Keen helpers on on the table!!
    Enjoy - keep focused!

  8. Goodness, what a stunning setting Maria... love the ladies actually ON the table to assist with the basting... holy cow, what a spectacular effort from Val to get all the quilting done.
    I look forward to seeing what you worked on.

  9. That looks like such a nice setup for lots of sewing. I'll bet you had a wonderful time.

  10. Looks like a great venue and lots of space! So much fun going on retreats :) xx
