Toowoomba retreat with.....

the Sunday Stitchers.....

Such a great weekend and so nice to be able to get away during the COVID19....
lots of conditions so we could stay safe but well worth the effort.....
Photo overload sadly for anyone reading this..... 
I'll limit the chatter as I wouldn't; want to bore you.....

Harry's café for brunch.....


De's great looking food....


Then off to visit craft shops but I was so excited to be out and about I forgot to take photos …..

Getting stuck set up and onto the serious sewing.....


But first.....
Fun and games organized by Alison and Susan....


We all wrote on sticky notes showing what we hope to achieve over the weekend......


social distancing of course, nice to have a table each.....


Alison gave us all a goodie bag which was great......


Alison also gave us a demonstration with masks....
for our safety of course.....


UFO for me....
Simple Life quilt pattern by Annie Downs....

Surprise project organized by Susan and Alison....
We had to bring 2 pieces of fabric... 1 lining and 1 outer.....

These are the results.....

Bit hard to explain here really.....
Mine is the one with the doily....
