On retreat

A while back I mentioned that I had booked into a quilting retreat in an effort to get back on track with some crafting. Last weekend was 'it' and I have to say I had a lovely time. I even managed to get some work done!
This quilt top had been languishing for sometime, only lacking borders. It turned out nicely I think and now is ready to be sent off for machine quilting.

I then made a start on this Anni Downs pattern and made quite a bit of progress since I hadn't done any cutting beforehand.

The retreat was held here, at Cunningham's Gap not far from home, and this is the cottage I stayed in. Rather apt I think. The weather was a bit drizzly and cool, but the bell birds didn't stop all weekend. Good weather to be inside crafting anyway! 

They have regular retreats so I think I may be booking in again, later in the year.


  1. Lovely quilt Carolyn, and lots of lovely stitching done too. Glad you had a great time as well as productive.

  2. I can't wait for that quilt to be finished! It is going to be so well loved! xx

  3. We went To that retreat last year and stayed in Boonah :D we are already booked in for the end of this year too - cant wait!
