One would think that having been off work for almost 2 weeks and being on retreat for 5 days I would have a gazillion finishes...but no!...I do have things more "progressed" than before but I did manage a few finishes.
And sorry - you may have seen most of them before....
A very quick one
My first finish at retreat was a small ironing mat - 12" square. It sits on top of a piece of very thick felt which used to sit under a manual typewriter. The last one was made 2 years ago I think.
Then I made the Retreat Challenge - a pin & needle holder based on a pattern from Marg Low
The I turned my table topper that I won at Nundle this year into a zippy pouch.
AND - Donna's Dreaming
I finished this off when I came back from retreat...
I am not sure when I made this...I do recall I worked on it at a retreat - before I started going to Boystown retreats and the first one of them was in 2004. So I guess it was 2003.
I do recall I was working on it and realized I had cut a lot of pieces too small, so I packed it away (quietly) and had to get more fabric and "fudge" it.
This was designed by Donna Elkington (who used to own a Quilt Shop in Brisbane.)
I do love the border on this one.
Not too long til my next retreat....better start planning!!!
