I dont know why it's so hard to get back into things after being on holidays.
I have spent 3 weekends in a row away and 2 of those sewing and one wining and dining in the Hunter Valley. How lucky am I . Never a dull day in this house.
Let me start with a beautiful weekend at a fantastic retreat location "Stacey's at the Gap". All weekend sewing with friends and catching up on UFO's. You will find it on line if you want a nice place to go. Its not far from Warwick or Brisbane.

SEWING AT THE CHOOKSHED

|This is a beautiful and quirky sewing music box..My lovely sister found this for me a few weeks ago. I got it when I got home from the Chookshed. |
Its so cute..open the drawer and all parts move and it plays music as well.
|I worked on completing this dresden plate quilt . I started it at Kerry's " Cottage on the Hill" last year. Nearly finished it at the Chookshed.|
