Retreat Yay (heavy pictures)

Had a great weekend......retreat in Katoomba, put on by Karen and Brendan from The Stitching Post.

Friday morning I woke to hear it was snowing in the Blue Mountains and the roads were closed......

This was the front of Karen's shop

I spent the day listening to road reports to see when the roads were open and by the time I left Penrith at 4.30 they were open, but still icy.  

This is how it looked when I got there Friday afternoon :)

Friday night we had a cocktail party and a trunk show, that was fun.  Saturday morning came quickly and the fun really began.  We had 3 teachers, Gail Pan, Lisa Cantlay and Carol Roberts, 6 patterns and 6 kits we could purchase or bring our own supplies.  

My first go at needle turn applique

I had a great weekend, learnt some new things, started three projects out of the 6, one is nearly finished.  Meet some lovely ladies, ate a lot of food,  and cant wait till next year :)

Carol, Lisa, Brendan, Gail and Karen

I also have neglected to mention that I have joined Chookyblue's Secret Santa Swap, which is looking good.

Will post a few more pictures tomorrow of the lovely work of Lisa and Gail.

Well that's enough from me

Happy stitching
