Making me happy this week is spending 3 days at the Quilters Rest, quilt retreat in Kingaroy.
This is such a wonderful place to go to and I had a ball.
I got to spend that time with my wonderful friends Laurel, and Helen and
Jenny, who I haven't seen since last year, so it was great to see her and share some laughs. I also met 2 new ladies, Leanne and Vicki. We all got on so well, it felt like we'd known each other for years.
the only thing we heard for 3 days (besides laughing and chatting) were the cows!!!
I also managed to get lots of sewing done. This is a quilt top I cut out and put together..
The fabrics are beautiful in it. I am so pleased to get it to this stage...
I also took along a few smaller projects which I finished on the weekend.. This is a little Hatched and Patched wool pincushion.. Just need to fill it up..
A wrist pincushion (one of Natalie Birds free patterns)
I finished this cute little stitchery from a pattern I found in a Homespun Magazine....
I also had this little purse to make.. It has a very fiddly slide clasp and magnet closure. Thanks to Helen I got this finished, as it had me baffled for quite some time!!!
This block is the first in Raspberry Rabbits free BOM.. I got this finished and a good start on the second block.
I am so pleased with what I finished this weekend.
This weekend was just wonderful, and sharing it with these friends of mine made it even more special. These weekends are precious!!!!
Hope you have a HAPPY MONDAY everyone!!!
