On the weekend 7 of us from our quilt group went to "Cottage on the Hill" for our annual retreat. We did all the good things, checked out the little gift stores and patchwork stores on the way.
We stayed in the new cabins especially designed for retreat ladies.... very nice we all loved it.
I made a fun, bright flannel quilt for the girls in the family. Then I tried my hand at a fancy bird pin cushion by "Wooden Spool Designs"(Deborah Busby) called A little Birdie Told me.

|Peg's amazing quilt. The border really made it.|
|This border fabric is beautiful|
|This is mine. Flannel, simple and colourful just for Evelyn to snuggle in when she visits Grandma and Poppy in winter. The photo isn't great the colours are prettier than they look.|
|A little birdie told me....I really enjoyed making this.|
|Di's with the same fabrics as mine ...so colourful|
I had the best time thanks to Kerry and the girls. Our group was joined by Fiona it was lovely to meet her.
