It was wonderful I came back revitalised and with all my sewing mojo ramped up. Here are the hand pieced blocks I managed.
3 are from pretty circle game, 1 is Glitter which I am going to be doing in red creams and blues. And 1 is a delilah block.
I also half basted a quilt but gave up because the table top wouldn't allow me to stretch the backing sufficiently for machine quilting, so I will either start again finish basting the 2nd half.
We ate out most nights. Sewed every day and plan to do it again next year. There are a couple of things we might do differently (like not bring so much food). But we had such a great time, we all had our own space to relax in if we needed a break and I don't think anyone got anyones nerves at all.
I did reach 10 years the other week with the company and I was given a very expensive watch which is beautiful, but it has just made all the above that much harder as now I feel guilty about needing to rethink things.
