From the No-Fuss Retreat

Only Secret Santa Sewing Going on Here.
I'd love to show you the really interesting pattern I've chosen. And the way I have to re-draft it and re-size it to make it extra special. And the wonderful fabrics I've pulled from my stash along with a few special pieces from the LQS. Yes, I would love to share all, but alas, not allowed. As I'm a good girl (most of the time) I will obey my swap mama - Chookyblue.
So I will share with you other people's projects that I snapped at the retreat I attended in August. With apologies for having no idea of the quilters' names.
This cheerful yellow and grey quilt is being made by a new quilter - this is her first quilt.
 
I love the teals in this. This quilter is using a Craftsy pattern.
 
The magazine project went from this....
 
...to this. I love her warm, autumn colours.
 
The lady that sat next me (hi Chris!) was making a log cabin table runner with these gorgeous fabrics. Aren't they just the yummiest?

I'm off to the Perth Royal Show tomorrow with the DH. Amazingly he still likes my company! Even if I am a grumpy guts sometimes. I will even carry his Vegemite sandwich for morning tea. Life is good.

Alarming to think how close to Christmas we are, isn't it. I really better get cracking on making Christmas presents.
