UFO Weekend and Blog Giveaway
Russellee’s UFO Retreat last weekend a great weekend despite several misshapes preventing some from coming. All in all a lot of sewing was achieved.
We had a lovely lady, Lois; from Sydney join us for the weekend. Her main project was a very colourful basket weave quilt. Lots of ‘Y’ seams but the end result was stunning.
One of our regulars from Canberra did a Shop Hop Road trip in California last January. She brought along a lot of the goodies that she purchased while she was there. Her project for the weekend was a beautiful Peacock Quilt that she purchased as a kit from one of the shops.
Roz continued on her UFO from our last retreat as her life has been so busy that finding time to sew has been difficult. When she started to lay out her blocks she found that she had gone overboard and will probably have enough to make two very large quilts.
On Sunday Anne came out for lunch with us. She had a fall in her backyard the day before the Retreat. She fell onto some rocks and was in a bit of a mess. Very lucky as it could have been a lot worse.
I actually started another project. Have a heap of UFOs but I am hoping to have this one finished for a display in April. We will see as our Quilting Cruise is next week and when we arrive home the next two weekends are booked with a Scrapbooking Retreat followed by a group of 10 ladies coming from Canberra for a Retreat of their own.
Russellee’s next UFO Retreat is the 13-15 June. I am running a blog giveaway for the Retreat. Leave a comment and you could join us with two nights’ accommodation and meals at this Retreat in Tumut. You have until the end of our Quilting Cruise to leave a comment.
I shall keep you posted on how our Quilting Cruise progresses.
