I had a wonderful weekend planned and I will say it all turned out wonderful even though I missed the first day! Stitching friends all enjoyed a great retreat at St John of God Shoalwater Retreat Centre - a great venue on the beach on the west coast of Australia - pure indulgence!
Usually I take handwork to retreats - this time I took my basket of Kaffe's and machine stitched this flimsy. It was a great diversion inspired by one of Kaffe's designs from one of his earlier books - it turned out exactly as I envisaged, quite a large quilt and when quilted I will hang it on my family room wall to brighten up a rather dull space in my otherwise bright house. I have spoken about my quest for colour and it seems to be happening.
There has been quite an injection of blue into a very lilacy-pink quilt - maybe a blue striped binding cut on bias - we'll see!
Yes, 6 years old today - Byron and Heidi - my babies are growing up - I have told them both I need more baby grandchildren now! Unprompted, that dear wee boy put his arm around his sister's shoulder for this pic! See why I love them so much!
