A week ago I was packed and ready to go on a quilting retreat! My friend Rens picked me up and we drove via Gatton (where there was a Christmas craft market) to Edmund Park, near Thornton in the Lockyer Valley. This was the view we had over the Great Dividing Range:
It was the same place as three years ago, again organised by Julie. It did look a bit greener then...
The beautiful jacaranda was in bloom again...
And there were still lots of wallabies:
Here is Rens, working on a quilt for a friend:
Apart from the Dutch post bag that I showed in the previous posting, I worked on three projects:
The blue squares are scraps of my favourite fabrics. There weren't enough for a quilt, so I made a cushion. I love it! (and so do the boys)
Remember the pencil roll I made last year from a kilt I found at the op shop? I gave it to a friend after she told me loved it (yes, if friends or family tell me they love my stuff there is a good chance they end up getting it!). I still had most of the kilt and one more clasp, so I finally made another pencil roll - had been planning that for ages! Think I will keep this one myself :-)
The third project I worked on is a quilt I am making for a friend. I will show it here soon in a separate posting.
