Retreat Time ....

Thursday afternoon I arrived At Avalon Homestead in Toodyay for our Patch's annual retreat...
This is my room for the next few days ..

After settling in it was down to work and the first job was to sew all the buttons on for my "Scrappy Sheeps" eyes...A Toni Alexander design from Red Boot Company  Which was No 6 in last months Sunday Stitchers challenge...

Most are now done, just need some white buttons to finish them all...

Then it was onto my next project which is "Land Down Under" No 9 from Sunday Stitchers Challenge this month and another Toni Alexander Design


Blocks put together and now onto making Flying Geese.....


Ready to sew on and then it was time to get ready for our "Mad Hatter's Tea Party"

We did all have a great laugh when each of us appeared with our Mad Hats on....

Must away now to go back and sew some more "GEESE"

Happy Stitching..

Hugs  Maria 😊
