A week or so later...

So, I have been back from the best weekend ever! for over a week now and still haven't blogged. Oops!
Started off with an awesome trip up through the mountains with Rach.
Kinda slow going behind a truck.

This was me trying to get a photo of how "fast" we were going and the truck in the same pic.
Didn't work so well.
We got there and put our dibs on what bed we wanted. We made our way to the kitchen and opened the chocolate. That is pretty much where we stayed for the rest of the evening.
Chatting up a storm.
turned out that my big drama of keeping my fabric clean of chips and chocolate wasn't my biggest dilemma of the weekend. Who saw that coming???
It was the killer hangover that shared Saturday with me! Argh!
Its OK but, I was only trying to piece my single girl quilt. yeah you know the one. Its got lots of little pieces and CURVES!
Needless to say. I didn't get it finished. No photos either. we aren't really on speaking terms at the moment.
The other talented ladies that came got some finishes.

Adele bought this awesome diamond ruler and started this. Ace colours yeah?

Rach finished her Sherbet Pips top. Look at all of those tiny pieces!

Linda started and finished this awesome top using some quilted fish fabric. It is so sweet and pretty.

Alison started and finished her Kitchen windows top using Kaffes. the colours of this were amazing.

and because she is a show off, Rach finished another top using mainly plume fabrics.
I didn't get any photos of the actual house but it was so good. we have booked our next one already!
If you are in the area, I highly recommend The Vickery
Thank you to the awesome bunch of ladies that shared it with me, and helped me nurse my hango ver! ;)

Glad you had fun!!! Those hangovers can last ages at our old age now, eh?

Adele said...

Wasn't it fun! I loved being with you guys.... what a cruisey weekend. Shame the 'Blade Runner' couldn't be with us. Look forward to our weekends for years and years to come. xx
