Retreat sewing ....


I am so lucky to be part of a group that has regular sewing retreats - they are held just down the road and I go for the days... and lovely full days of sewing they are... with a good mix of yummy food, great company and the odd chocolate, and maybe cake …..

I took Ocean Deep to work on the Friday …. I had done the pieced strips and it really was just adding the other strips on....  I really love this ….



Only part of the jelly roll was used and the rest have been pieced into strips (with a dozen extra strips) and also cut into triangles to be sewn into something different

Saturdays sewing consisted of using a Quick Curve ruler to make this runner.  I'm delighted with it.  The grey has subtle bits of shiny silver in it.  It is about 18" x 54" so quite big and I'm looking forward to having some fun quilting it.


The pattern for this is a freebie from Sew Kind of Wonderful.  Of course you need the special ruler but I did this from start to finish in a morning.

We had such a beautiful day, even if it started a bit chilly … and the grounds where we are look lovely …


For the afternoon I started sewing the slashes and sashing on my Safari quilt which I had cut and prepared some time ago.....


I'm hoping to get this together tomorrow …..

Righto, Gotto Go... need to get some sleep.  Hope you are all having a lovely weekend ….

I have some catch up reading to do but it's great to see you had a productive time retreating.I have one of those curved rulers - must pull it out one day....I love what you have done with it. Ocean Deep is also pretty cool - I'm looking forward to seeing it as a finished quilt :-)

A very productive retreat! My ideal retreat would be just me and my sewing/music stuff, meals would be provided, there would be no distractions at all. Just me and me alone. Bliss.....

The shapes on your Quick Curve runner look a bit like poinsettias! It's really lovely in those soft colors :)

Brilliant projects and so lovely to share the stitching time with like minded people. It inspires and encourages you on, not that you need that as you have bundles of both lol xcx
