What a great day we had at Quilt Fabric Delights retreat "Inspired Stitches". The scene was set when we were greeted at the door & given a beautiful name tag and then it was off to find a seat & to greet other enthusiasts & friends. Shirley & I met up with our S.A. friends Jo & Carolyn. We checked the samples of the projects that were to keep us busy for the day & found a great display of gorgeous little projects. The goodie bag that we all received was full of surprises too.
Our tutors Leanne , Rosalie, Melanie, & Janelle are all so enthusiastic about what they do that you cannot help but feel excited too. They all had a display of their most recent designs. They have so many things to tempt us that it is hard to decide what to do. At the end of the day we did not achieve much, as we spent most of the time chatting & checking out what other people were doing. But really that is what it is all about.
Shirley & Melly had some fun with Melly's stuffed animals. They are so cute!!!!!!!
Look out for Melly's new book which will feature some of these and much, much more.
Janelle & I look like we are going shopping with all these beautiful bags. Janelle & her family made a holiday of this trip to Adelaide from their home in NSW & took the chance to visit some friends along the way. Working in this industry, does not really feel like work at all as we get to meet so many talented & modest people. Janelle's display was clear & bright which reflects her bubbly personality. Must find time to make some of the bright bags.
Shirley with our friends Jo & Carolyn enjoyed catching up with Leanne of Leanne's House.
Leanne had designed some lovely place mats with her trade mark delightful stitching.
Patterns for all the projects we made at the weekend will be available soon, so keep posted for more details.
A big "Thank-You" to Sarah for organising this great weekend. Let's do it all again next year.
Here Sarah takes a short break with her two delightful sisters who were kept busy all day making sure that we were having a great time.
One hubbie asked on the way home where we are off to next...Port Douglas, Tasmania?????Sounds good to us.
