With the quilt show over (wasn't it great) it's now time to turn my full attention to helping Robyen at Country Pickin's at the Corner to organise the first of what I'm sure will be many annual Christmas in July quilting retreats.
5 teachers including yours truley will brave the cold mountain air, fill our cars with supplies and head off for a weekend with magnificent views over the three sisters, slow combustion fires to keep us warm, all meals cooked for us including a Christmas in July dinner which along with the many delightful Christmas theme projects will warm our hearts.
There will be extra long lunch breaks so that we can take a walk along the cliff top, or ride the scenic railway to the valley floor. Shopping, or taking a nap might be on the agenda for the less adventurous.
Still a couple of vacancies in workshops including Tita Leach - beautiful Santa Sack, Katrina Hadjimichael - foundation pieced quilt, Vaness Thomas - reindeer and bear, and Margaret Cormack - stained glass table runner. My class is officially full but I could be pursuaded to take just a couple more.
Let Robyen or myself know if you'd like to join us.
