Back to stitching..

...and a weekend retreat at Two Rivers winery, Denman….Arhhh the ambience .. and the wine!!!

... a lovely relaxed weekend with 6 stitching buddies.. and lots of sewing was achieved….actually we  were like possessed mad woman ….staying up till the wee hours to get quilt tops done!

I made another sew together bag..
 And a new quilt top… only 3 rounds off finishing..

 Lots of laughter and nibbles
Miles and miles of triangles!

Reverse sewing…not happy Raelee!

Cardy came up from the big city…working on her usual stunning hand pieced blocks..just gorgeous!!

 Raelee and Julie both doing this fabulous quilt… the race was on!

Some show and tell…finishes from our last retreat.


To finish off… Introducing my new Grand Dog, Piper

from this little dot to this lump in a matter of weeks.
I haven't met her in person yet... Can't wait to get a cuddle and a lick!

GDITC only 3 sleeps away!... So another weekend of friends, fun, frivolity, fibre and fabric… and fine wine and food too!!  FANTASTIC!… (well.. some one has to do it!!)

Till next time
