I spent the weekend with 9 precious crafty friends, on a creative retreat, and had a FABULOUS time of sewing, eating (no cooking or dishes!), laughing, staying up late, chatting, consuming chocolate etc… We stayed at the Sisters of Saint John of God Retreat Centre in Shoalwater, WA. Here are a few action photos from the weekend.
Our sewing/scrapping/crafting room.
Lisa & Vicki working on their quilts.
Ali clipping Vicki’s shaggy quilt, whilst Jenny & I sew bags behind her.
Michelle, Zoe and Chanoa working on their photo albums.
Shelley with her finished quilt & Cheryl with her WIP.
A HUGE Thank You to Cheryl for organising this fantastic weekend, I can’t wait for the next one :)
I also finished a few more bags today for an upcoming market, I love bag making.

It’s one of those song choruses that gets in your head and stays there for days. I don’t really mind though, you all know how partial I am to babushkas :) I have made some babushka girls bags to go with Anna's gorgeous children’s clothes – Gooseberry Bush Kidz. Here is a sneak peak…
Anna is going to be at Market Girl Boutique Markets for boys and girls this Sunday 7th November 10-4pm at the Joondalup Reception Centre, Boas Ave, Joondalup (next to the library).
I finished making the other bag from the Butterick pattern in my previous post. I used a yummy red blended linen fabric from work. The pattern has a set in, gathered base which works really well. Please excuse the dusty cupboard slats in the background :)
DH has just put the kettle on, so I am off to have an Organic Earl Grey tea – many thanks to my Bergamot supplier in Melbourne ;0)
Hope you have a great weekend!
