Fun in Brisbane

Hi all
I am having a lot of fun with my family in Brisbane, but can't wait till the weekend where I get to go to a retreat at Mt. Alford with Julie . Julie is the only person I know at this retreat, but I'm sure I'll have a blast. The only problem at the moment is I came away without the lead from my camera to the computer. B.....!! I have a lead for the battery charger, a lead for my phone charger and a lead for my tablet charger if needed, so I guess I could be excused for forgetting something. Trouble is I want to put some pics up.
I am doing some hand applique whilst here, and have just made a start on Mrs Billings coverlet. Phew 5/8" hexagons!!
Also starting one of the 16th birthday grand child quilts. If I get a lead to the camera, I'll post what I get done at the retreat. Mind you there'll be a fair bit of talking and eating going on, and I've got my supply of red wine at the reddy!

Bye for now

Be sure to have the very best time Sue. What a shame about the camera cord - maybe you can use your phone for the occasional pic?
Can't wait to see your Mrs Billings progress.

Have a great time at the retreat Sue and we will look forward to seeing the pics when you get home. Take care.

Retreat was a hoot, it was so great to meet you. Hope to see you again at next year's retreat, if not before! Happy stitching. Sharon.

...oh and you were so good not drinking all of your red wine! Could that have been because we were all talking too much to drink? LOL

I have to tell you Sue, our time together was just perfect. The retreat weekend gave us so much time to get to know eachother, then your visit to my little home, gave us more time to share stories and stitching adventures....Look forward to seeing you in 2013. Thanks for taking the time to come for a visit.
