Weekend Retreat

On the weekend 8 of us were invited to Carols farm just out of town for a retreat. Carol holds these wonderful weekends about twice a year and we have a great time sewing, eating, drinking, talking and laughing. I made these two rugby league supporter quilts for friends sons, using a flag for the centre.
Sorry the photos are blurred, I have a problem with my camera.

Stiching Angel Gifts

These are two of the gifts made for me by Berni Shell my stitching angel. Thankyou so much Bernie I really appreciate these lovely hand made gifts. Bernie also sent me a laundry bag,steam a seam, which you use to stick applique on with, some chocolate (which I have eaten) a postcard and badge from Seattle where she lives. Bernie also made and sent a lavender bag, but unfortunately we have very strict laws about bringing plant material into Australia so the package was opened by custome and the lavender bag removed. They sent me a note saying I could have the lavender bag "gamma irradiated" at the cost of $42.50, but Bernie and I decided the money could be better spent. Thanks once again.
