We stayed at the gorgeous Sewjourn in Lancefield and ate
(pumpkin soup with yummy bread from Baker's delight)
had some fun with "invisible" zippers
Had a romantic candlelit path down to the studio as the security lights were not working.
We thought of this on the second night.
The first night I may have almost walked into the cactus patch in the dark!
Ate some more. Very yummy roast pork and vegies for dinner cooked by Liesl.
I also made sticky date pudding but we may have ate it all before I took a picture (oops!)
The Girls enjoying dinner and drinks.
Some more sewing.
Tried to eat more (wool felted macaroon, because we just didn't have enough food!)
tried to lay down on the job,
cut it back,
and pinned it all over.
Had fun with long pieces of sting piecing.
I swapped Bec and sewed her and my blocks while she ironed all our blocks.
Cooked and ate some more,
Liesl made some very moreish donuts,
and then dipped them in chocolate icing!
Almost untouched platter of fruit...
self timed photo,
Lots and lots of sewing happening in the studio,
Mel hogging 1/2 of the table space!
Yep, we had four machines, two overlockers and two irons between just four of us!
It just got too much for some people
All of our finished and half finished projects,
One quilt finished, one in the planning stage, one top and skirt finished, one bag and four purses made, one quilt basted and another basted quilt and binded (with a little help ;P), one macaroon, one cutre little pair o almost finished pants, and a lot of quilt blocks made.
Cute purses made with tiny little strips leftover from quilt by Bec.
Bag also by Bec and top and skirt by Liesl (love the FMF flower on the bag, may need to pinch Bec's scraps)
Macaroons felted by Mel and purses by Bec
Cute red cord pants by Liesl with phantom boy wearing them
More pictures of the macaroons, don't you just want a whole plate full of them!
And a very happy and relaxed me in front of the quilt I made on the weekend. (More photos and better post on the quilt coming up later).
I had the best weekend and can't wait until our hopefully 4(!) day weekend next year!
