I can tell you mine!
' You are just as mad in real life as you are on your blog!'
Well, I thought that was perfect!
Did we have a good time? Yes, we did!
I was escorted by my lad, who came with me, to meet a fellow retreater, with whom I went to lunch!
|Sorry about the blurry picture...|
And so, we attended the retreat. Table tops, and workshops, and met new folk, and did different things, and just got on with this and that.
and my lad came to fetch me at the end, and we all went for a meal, and he escorted me back to his place for the night, afterward.
And brought me back into London the next day, with sewing machine.... which was immediately pressed into use!
In the afternoon, we made 'Portholes' Not 'gloryholes' , we were told- there seems to be some nuance there that I may be missing...
That evening, there was the sample swap.
My little group was lovely, and I received the wonderful zippy pouch, which has been pressed into immediate service, to take a little hand work on holiday tomorrow..
|Porthole, the first|
I will have to think that one through!
|Porthole, the second|
Yes, I used variegated thread on this one.
|Porthole, the third!|
Well, some of my seams meet where they are meant to, but I consistently make my blocks 1/8" too big.. A small fault perhaps.. but..
At least I am consistent ( silly grin)
And my lad came to bring my machine back at the end. He is not a bad lad!
And there was not a pick between them. So, I shall continue to sew these with no pins, and cross my fingers and hope they work!Two of these illustrated are non pinned, and one pinned!
Guess the odd one out! No prizes, because I do not know myself.
Now, I am off, and may be back in a weeks time- perhaps.. And I may tell you more- but then, you may be bored by all of it by then, so what I have omitted, may stay that way!
