No distractions a weekend of heaven

I am just back from Te Anau in Fiordland NZ, a stitching/quilting retreat with a group of ladies.  We had so much fun and achieved projects that had been sitting there waiting patiently....

We weren't sure about the weather but Saturday turned out just divine, sunny and calm.  Sunday proved to be cooler and we did have to get the fire going thanks to the chief firelighter Wendy.

As usual, everyone packed up while I was helping sort out a project and I couldn't get final photos of what was made,  but you just wait ladies I will snoop with the camera when you aren't looking...

I did manage to photograph a couple while they were being worked on....

Liz's fabulous Xmas cushion "Joy to the World"

Debbie's kids quilt with tractors and cows and dogs, just boys stuff

Jenny's fat quarter bag (2 fat quarters) and hexagons for her caravan cushion

Pat's  blocks for one of  Jen Kingwells quilts

Thanks ladies for a fabulous time.

Happy Stitching until next visit
