Quilter's Harvest Retreat

My buddy Cheryl and i had a wonderful time at the Quilter's Harvest Spring themed retreat,Delwyn and Shirley sure put on a wonderful weekend,our tutors were Marg Low of Marg Low designs ,Shelly Kelly of skellywag sewing and Leonie Bateman from the quilted crow in Hobart.

These were the projects thatwe got in our goodie bag plus 2 patchwork rulers and a little pattern from Gail Pan and another small pattern from Marg Low,these goodie bags were such good value and the projects were amazing,i cant wait to start on a few of them.

Some gorgeous show and tell from the tutors and we had a wonderful lunch and tea and coffee all day with beautiful slices,we were so spoilt.

The middle row are mini quilts made by Shelly and she won second prize with the middle one and the middle one to the left is log cabin and the finished piece was like 4" x 6",they were amazing and tiny,lol.
We had such a wonderful time and i am looking forward to my next workshop with Cheryl in a fortnight.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend .

OPAM for September and another workshop

I have had so much trouble with the computer over the last couple of weeks and i thought today i would have to get a new one next week,but i went and restored it back to factory settings and it seems to be working fine now,fingers crossed,i had no email access, my DD2 tried to help when she came to pick the grandies up and 3 1/2 hrs later she left very frustrated ,its after midnight and i hope that my scheduled post will work.
Trying to fix the computer means i didnt get around to commenting on blogs so i will try to catch up over the next few days.

 I had a pretty good month in September for finishes with 22 finishes,thankyou Peg and Kris for the motivation to get projects finished.

I am heading down to play with Cheryl and Sandi for a couple of days,we have a workshop on Sat with the Quilter's Harvest with 3 tutors,i can only remember one and thats Marg Low,cant wait to spend time with my friends again.

Also i will be stitching with Cheryl tonight and if you would like to join us in Friday Night With Friends,you can go and signup with our lovely hostess Chez .
It was lovely to chat with you Chez yesterday,lol,we got some very important business sorted.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
