Sewjourn weekend

'Twas grand..... A weekend of sewing, laughing, eating WA-HAY too much chocolate and enjoying the company of a bunch of fabulous, generous, talented women (including two blogless gals).

BTW - I've decided that when I grow up, I want to be able to make quilts like Annie.
Although there was much laughter and conversation (and the odd glass of wine), the emphasis was definitely on sewing. The dining room table was mostly re-purposed as a cutting room with my sewing buddy's and my new super-sized cutting mats. There were late nights and finished garments.
I began another textiles-magical-mystery-tour - this time with knitted bits of wool and linen gauze. So far, the road has taken an unexpected turn.... (and I'll return to this story when there is some sort of ending in sight).


Many thanks to my fellow Sewjourners. It was an absolutely soul-reviving pleasure to spend time with you and I'm counting the days until we return.


NEWSFLASH! Did you know that Cath still has THREE of my books to give away??? Sorry if you missed out on Jodie's giveaway (she just drew some lucky winners!).

3 more days until I head off for a similar weekend. I am so excited. Nervous too at leaving my hubby with my parents for 5 days but excited none the less.

I was a winner on Jodie's blog; I received the book today and will mention it on my blog soon.

Thank you to you and your publishers (and to the wonderful, talented Jdie of course).
