Back home now



The retreat days went by so quickly, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. 
I made more blocks with strips
Carleen put a pink border and piano key border on her quilt top
Maria has the borders on ,one more piano key border to go
Maxine machine sewed the binding on her finished top then continued with the blocks in the last post

On the way home we stopped at Maddingly Park in Bacchus Marsh to do an Adventure Lad and find a cache, luckily we finished just before the rain came belting down.
 back home I have had some good rides along the beach

Yesterday was calm, today is windy.
Last night David and I went to the opening of the Flora of the Bellarine exhibition at the Artisans of Australia gallery in Drysdale.
It was quite exciting to see my little piece on the wall
it was in a corner with other Glasswort pieces
a beautiful painting and  glasswork, the little pots had beach glass stuck on them and Glasswort plants growing in them.
Also there was Pat, who encouraged me to put in an entry, Pat does amazing paintings
Pats paintings.
there was quite a lot to look at paintings, glasswork, textile pieces and sculptures also mixed media pieces. We had a good time there.
Time for me to go outside and do some grass cutting!
Happy stitching.

Hiya Sue ... I have been catching up on all your posts - you have been busy my friend. The Retreat looked amazing & such inspiring ladies. Gosh Sue I would've been SO so chuffed to have a piece of my work exhibited at the art exhibition. How wonderful - you should give yourself more credit - it looks great!! xx
