Can you believe it's almost two weeks since the retreat.
It was a fanstastic weekend organised by Karen & Bren from Linen and Threads.
Lovely ladies, yummy food and a spectacular view!
My photographic skills do not do it justice.
Indoors it was all about catching up with old friends, making new ones, stitching, shopping ......
My projects for the workshop included a stitchery using one of Barb's (Theodora Cleave) gorgeous buttons and a birdie stitchery made as a decoration or used on a bag.
Both patterns, Make a Christmas Wish and Hearts & Berries retail for $10 each plus P&H. Kits are available for both projects.
While Hearts & Berries may look a little too festive for some, colour changes everything. Try stitching the birdie in blue with red or blue berries for everyday use.
My other little project was a Thread Roll. Some of you may remember this as my Make & Take project at AQC earlier this year.
Everyone was thrilled to go home with a Thread Roll saying it was the first time ever they'd finished something at a workshop.
This is the type of project I LOVE BEST, a combination of techniques and materials, but best of all make-able in a couple of hours.
The Thread Roll pattern retails for $6.50 plus P&H and a kit is available too.
One of thread rolls made at the retreat. Love it!
Thank you to everyone who attended the retreat, Karen & Bren and the other two tutors, Anni Downs and Michelle Marvig for making it such an enjoyable weekend.
