Girls @ Patchwork Retreat

If you have never been on retreat or camp with your crafting friends do your self a favour and go on one this year. You will love every minute of it and cement friendships and make new ones. The photos above and below are just a few from one of the groups that have been on Retreat in the last few weeks, and have already re booked for 2012, that of course makes my heart sing knowing that Circle retreat ticks all the boxes. please look us up and book yourself in. Or find one in your state, if you need help locating one please just ask and I will point you in the right direction.
Now this lady loves a bag or three so imagine what her shoe collection is like......I love both.
 the sewing room a buzz.......
 and of course late afternoon delight on the deck. Thanks for the photos Pendicup Patchers if you live in the Albany creek area and need a group to sew with maybe look these ladies up.

Below are just 2 of some of the quilts from Jem quilters weekend show. The first one is made by the lady who doesn't own a sewing machine.... i know totally inspiring. This is the same lady that donated the quilt in my last post. and the poppy quilt below was a sure favourite, what do you think? More quilts to show tomorrow.

Cheers n happy Stitching

You are so right about how wonderful quilting retreats are! To be with other crafty women, laughing and sewing is just such a wonderful thing. Especially when you don't have to think about cooking or housework! I love that big quilt made by the lady who dosent have a sewing machine!
