Don’t you just love quilting retreats? The preparation that went on before is such that one would think I was spending a week there! But you never know…… I may get tired of one project and want to do something else. When I got to the retreat I found that most of my quilting buddies did the same – you should have seen the amount of “stuff” that we all brought with us.
We spent a fantastic weekend at The Craft Retreat in Hepburn Springs. What a beautiful place. The house has been designed specifically for quilters in mind. The room that we sewed in was large with lots of natural light, fully stocked with all the gadgets and gizmos that we love and a great design wall; room for 9 to sleep comfortably, large dining/kitchen and relaxing lounge area. None of us wanted to leave. Of course, great food, good wine and wonderful company. We’ll be back next year. I wish I’d taken more photos – I meant to but got caught up with sewing and conversation! I worked hard on trying to finish Mimosa, but conversation got in the way!!
On the way there I caught up with friends at Digs in Newstead for a coffee and some business! More to follow later.
I’m madly trying to get quilts ready in time for the Quilt and Craft Fair in Melbourne from 26 to 29 July 2012. I’ve completed Mosaics and I’m in the process of getting all the “paperwork” done. Getting a photo done was beginning to be a real pain……the weather wouldn’t cooperate here in Melbourne and time was getting away with me. I bit the bullet and had photos done at a photographic studio – and I’m very pleased with the results. So look out for Mosaics at Somerset Patchwork & Quilting.
