Baradine retreat 2022

 Well what a great weekend. Lots of lovely ladies, some bloggers and great catering for us by Ronnie , Janine and Nea. Thanks ladies. My friend Gail came along with me and  that was great as it is a 4.5 hour drive to get there. Some ladies came from other states , what a drive they had - a day or two. We spent our time sewing , talking and sharing ideas, jokes and stories. Baradine is just a very small, small  country town and I hope we bought some support to their little town with our retreat.I love the people there such genuine people and some real characters.

Before going on retreat these two placed the squares on the design wall.. I think they did pretty well.

Step One -sew the squares

Step 2 cut them up and sew it again with a slight twist... this is what you get
