Retreat at Stony Rise Bagdad

      Well we had our once a year retreat at a lovely serene dwelling in the hills of Bagdad. Stony Rise is a 5 twin share bedroom home, 2 bathrooms, a large family room for sewing, a comfy lounge room with fire to relax and chat in. The kitchen was large enough for 9 ladies to mill around in, with a combustion stove for cooking, hot water and warmth. Just loved it.
        Those who attended were Roxy, Jenny, Suzanne, Kylie, Judy, Vicki, Caroline, Kerry and Alison.  Judy showed us the new quick quilt top to make, a Potato Chip Quilt, so quick but so effective I hope to post a photo of this soon. We displayed our Round Robin Challenge Quilts as you will see below. All where a surprise to their owners.
         Here are some of my photos, I will try and get a few from the other girls as well

Exhibition pictures

 We recently were asked to exhibit some quilts at the Richmond Village Fair. We setup in the Town Hall sharing the space with some vintage motorcycles. It was a busy day and plenty of people to talk to.
