OPAM Finishes and RSC at RETREAT...

 Last Wednesday I drove to Perth to pick up my DD2 and we went to Toodjay for retreat...

It's a beautiful place to enjoy good friends with no cooking or cleaning for four days . Just sewing chatting and lots of laughing and I did complete some projects ....



Stippled the " I Spy " quilt and stitched on the binding...



As I've joined Kris for OPAM this year again  I can add this finish.....

as well as the "Santa"  wall hanging,


















I got the  "Racing Cars"  together into a flimsy ready to sandwich and pin,










and also the  "Sisters " blocks...

The Sisters were last years  RSC  but this year I'm just doing some 2 1/2" blocks like this , PINK  was Januarys colour....
and then I worked on " Fabric Fusion" 





You can read more about this project HERE  

The days passed quickly and before I know it it was time to go home!!!



Must away now as I want to watch the end of 'I'm a Celebrity get me out of Here.....

Happy Stitching and stay well.

Hugs  Maria ❤

  4. You were certainly very productive when away....just goes to show how much time cooking, cleaning etc cuts into our sewing. Your sisters top reminds me of pretty drop earrings.

  15. That looks like an amazing place for a retreat! You really accomplished a lot in your four days. That race car quilt turned out so cute, as well as the I Spy. I love the Santa and you finished it off so nicely. His socks crack me up! The sisters are ready for a party - all decked out in their colorful dresses. Welcome back home.
