I mentioned in a previous post that I was expecting special visitors, so thought I would post a photo of them that I took before they left. Lovely to see you both Faye and Kim, thanks for calling in.
Last weekend was the Anzac UFO retreat, and there were some who stayed, and some who came and went for various days, and those who popped in to visit. Tuesday morning my house was empty for the day, when clean up happened, the beds were remade, all ready to be occupied by DD2 and family who arrived that evening! It is school holidays here in South Australia.
These were the early birds, who got off to a start of their projects on Friday afternoon. One lady was knitting, and the other (who never does projects!!) shocked me and worked solidly all weekend and made a quilt!!
One morning we had "brunch" of bacon, eggs and tomato with toast, out in the pergola.
Paper plates were the preferred option, so there was no washing up, but unfortunately plastic cutlery just don't work very well to cut bacon!!
Some had already had brekkie before they arrived.
The resident cat was very spoiled by this lady.
I took this photo of the action inside the sewing room, while standing outside, and you can see the reflection of the car parked in the driveway.
I posted a photo from the Statler retreat, of one lady multitasking, and in this photo Raelene was trying to outdo Niki, by multitasking 3 things at once!
Erica's progress on a UFO, which is finally getting borders.
Pat is determined to get this quilt put together soon.
Another early morning brekkie in the pergola.
Julie came for another day working on her Embellished quilt.
Pamela was unable to come the previous weekend for the Embellished quilt class, so chose to work on her quilt this weekend, and was very happy to make some progress after not touching her quilt for a long time!
Pamela's centrepiece is being trapuntoed, and here she is tediously, carefully, cutting away the wadding.
The centre is now appliqued to the background and work will continue on this at home.
Margaret was very happy with her progress on the knitted jumper.
And Raelene was very happy to piece this quilt for a friend. And the quilter even loaded it on to Max and quilted it for her. And then the binding was even sewn, to result in a very successful weekend.
Hope you have enjoyed the photos of our weekend. It is almost 7am now, so I better get to the shower, before the little boys wake up. I can hear some rain on the roof, which is nice, because the country is so dry and desperately in need of moisture.
Be back soon,
Blessings, From Jude.
