Another great retreat

A great weekend with friends at Evans Head, NSW...... pity we can't go on a retreat every weekend ... hehehehe. We all had the best time... yummy food and good company with just a bit of sewing thrown in all adds up to a terrific time.


Here is Tereasa busy at work.


Teresa also busy making her project.


A very busy work room, 39 ladies altogether so it did get noisy at times.


The theme for the retreat was Christmas and we all had to make a placemat so I chose a christmas pudding, the napkin holder was a cute little gift for everyone.


Saturday night was christmas dinner with the full baked meal followed by........


christmas pudding of course.... it tasted as good as it looks.


and we had the best Santa visit us with little gifts for all of us ..... great fun.


This tree was one of the projects that we could do .... this is mine.... it was good to take a finished project home. The other project was a table runner I haven't finished mine yet  but if you go to Teresa's blog you can see a photo of our runners..... I will post a photo when I have done the layering and quilting, soon I hope. I'm really getting into these retreats... I think they are addictive.
Ooooops nearly forgot I won 2nd prize in the raffle which was a terrific bag but I still haven't got a piccie of it yet, I'm getting a bit of a reputation and my friends are calling me the "raffle queen" as I do seem to be very lucky with these raffles.
Oh goodo I have another OPAM now too.

Happy sewing everyone.
