This lovely bunch of women joined me at Sorrento for the weekend.
l think you can tell by the smiles on our faces, that we had a GOOD TIME!!!
Here is Sue having a lesson in hand quilting this antique quilt
she bought at An Evening With Mary.
Meredithe started with this pile of fabrics,
Pedal to the metal!!
And by the end of the day, this top was complete. ( sorry no finished photo)
Bonnie was working on her applique.
This is going to be one stunning quilt when finished.
One the second day, Meredithe changed tack, and was working on these blocks,
using some yummy Japanese fabrics.
My tumblers in progress.
Bev is working on this stunning red and white applique quilt.
Only one long border and 8 blocks to go!!!
As my tumblers grew, we needed to use the floor, as the design wall was too small.
Not only sewing happened across the weekend.
Here is Di having her first experience with this kitchen tool.
" Oh, is that how it works?
There were plenty of cooks in the kitchen, whipping up a delicious meal.
Note Bev checking the recipe!!
Di took some time out to press some tumblers for me, so l could keep sewing.
Then we all shared this magnificent meal.
Slow roasted garlic and lemon chicken,
potato, leek and silverbeet gratin, and lovely fresh salad.
Accompanied by champagne of course.
Followed by this divine chocolate cake and sauce, made by Di.
And responsible for the 2 kg gain over the weekend!! LOL
Over the weekend, l made lots of progress on my tumblers.
Here is Meredithe and Di doing a little measuring on Sue's antique quilt.
Bonnie making food choices.
l would say all in all, we had a great weekend.
Food, friends, fun and fabric. What more could you want.
Can't wait to go back again with this group of girls!!

Oh, and by the way, those ginger jars are hard wired into the security system!!
And after a further 5 hours in the sewing room on Monday,
my tumbler quilt is finished. Its off to be quilted this afternoon.
Thanks for visiting.
