I just realised I forgot to show you the other thing I was working on at the retreat!!! I’ve been making some chair covers for my lovely Mum for Christmas. I found a jelly roll and some charms that I’d bought AGES ago in my stash and decided that they contained just the right blue so took them with me. Honestly … when I unravelled them I realised how absolutely GAWJUS they were, it’s an old line that I’d probably have a devil of a job finding any more of lol – Portobello Market … but isn’t it just scrummy!!!??! I love the ‘blues’ … just gawjus!! I’m making the covers using 3 strips from my “Diamonds and Braids” quilt pattern, it’s quilt as you go so I’ve still got to join the strips … got more braided strips to do yet ;o). My friend Jill was also making the D&B quilt, don’t you just LOVE the fabrics!!! They’re Bali Pops – ‘Cappucino’ – simply stunning!! Think I need to get me some of those too ;o).
So here’s the last pic from the retreat …. this is my friend Valerie (in pink) and me with Karen and Roslyn – two of the three lovely ladies who organised our fabulous weekend … So to Karen and Roslyn and Kelly ... thank you - you gawjus ladies :o)!!!!
Don’t forget … you’ve still got time to tell me how many buttons are in the jar!!!!!!! Just click on the link to see the jar of buttons, then leave a comment with your guess – there’s a pretty “Plume” charm pack to be won :o)!!!!
