I am very fortunate to be able to get off work for a week and go and "hide" at Glenrose Retreat.
Of all the retreats I go to - it is by far the prettiest venue and the best suited to sewing.
I was able to put together the blocks I completed in the Gail Pan "Send My Love" BOM for 2018.
In all there were 36 blocks, but I chose to do only 32 and I liked the layout of Ruth's Quilt so much I copied it for this one. As there are a number of design walls at Glenrose - it was an idea opportunity to lay out where all the fabric and stitcheries were going and to try to balance it. (with some input from the others...)
I had prepped a lot of blocks for My Small World. The hot air balloon is not part of the pattern, however I'd seen one on the Instagram group I am following and had to buy the pattern . . .
The "Plan" for the IG group is a set number of blcoks per month - so this finishes almost all of the blocks for Month 2 (mid October - mid November) and is a good start on Month 3 (mid November - mid December).
My next step is to start laying them out so I can see how the colours are going...and I may start working in sections from this point on - which is what a lot of the others are now doing...
And I made one baby quilt top. (I did have a second one but didn't make a lot of progress on that one.)
There was some shopping time . . .some eating out time . . . .and of course some eating in time.
I made a Brie Twist - well with a few changes...LOL...I used a Camembert and instead of tomato chutney I used Baxters Date Fig & balsamic chutney - gorgeous stuff even by itself.
Thanks to the Tuesday Girls for inviting me along.
