Nowra Retreat ... finally!


I am so so late in publishing this post, this was the most fabulous time away, Kim from Jukejema organised this retreat, and boy does she organise well! Colleen and I booked this retreat getaway a long time ago, and finally the day arrived and we hoped on the silver bird and were off - altho' we very nearly didn't make it due to snow and a whole lot of other silly reasons! Never underestimate the power of quilters off to a retreat!
Anni Downs was there...
and Janelle Wind
and Natalie Ross - 3 super ladies! and so very talented...
Sue was there with her super cute mini antique (well almost if you count 1952 as antique???) sewing machine, it was in perfect working order and so very quiet...
and we made all these lovely, lovely friends...some blogging buddies and some not...
thank you ladies, it was a FANTASTIC weekend! And a very BIG thank you to Kim who did such a wonderful job organising this fantastic retreat. We had a ball.
Now back to teaching a class in the shop today, and lets hope I can get back here a l whole sooner then previous posts! Off to the Christchurch Creative Flair Fair next weekend - so I am busy busy getting organised for that too!
I hope you are all having a fabulous weekend
