Hard at it sewing at the retreat

A mighty storm is brewing again, as I sit here. Had a wonderful electric storm last night, thunder and lightening, but it soon went out to sea. My only worry always are the horses and dogs, but they seem to take it all in their stride.
I went on another retreat last weekend to a fabulous place on the East Coast about 40 minutes from where I live. The photos above, I took from the deck outside one of the sewing rooms.
I managed to go for a 40 minute work on Saturday morn, to try and make up for all the lovely food we had. This place has a full time chef, so we are treated very well. Lots of lovely baking for morning and afternoon tea, and roast beef and all the veges for Saturday night dinner.

I'm still hand quilting my large raspberry and caramel coloured quilt, and making some little gifts to take with my on my Quilting 'Outback Tour' of Australia in July. This afternoon managed to make some little Origami Bags. Will post a photo later.
