 I have finished my Aussie table runner
One for the present box
A wild old day here today
Damaging winds was the forecast
Hubby says we already have one tree down over a fence and two large branches.
Me? Iam not going out to look
Staying inside by the nice warm fire doing some stitching

Quilt Retreat

 I had the loveliest time at my quilt retreat last weekend The weather was beautiful ( shame it didnt last) the food was great and the company was fantastic
Most of the girls attending I did not know, but now have a new group of friends
I made a lap quilt top while I was there
Now have to set to work to quilt it
 One of the girls was giving away some books so I scored these two beauties Yippee
Look forward to the next retreat

Good weather for sewing though
Finished this little stack 'n' slash runner

Quick and easy

 MY Friday night was mainly taken up with preparation stuff. Next weekend Iam going with a couple of friends to a sewing weekend We are joining up with another local quilting group Should be fun.
Firstly I cut a silk scarf in half and made longer handles for a bag I got for my birthday I like longer handles
Hopefully this will work 
 Then I got some applique ready for a quilt I have planned
 Made a birthday card for a friends birthday this week
 Earlier in the afternoon I  pinned this quilt ready for quilting
So no finishes but I was happy with what I got done
How about you?
