Chookshed Party part 1.............

Friday night started with a double birthday celebration...........
one for Lea and one for the Chookshed.......
lots of group selfies, food, wine, bubbles and G & T..............
I had a great idea Some idiot had a great idea that we could all make a tincy wincy log cabin pincushion............
mine ended up a disaster but I will be making another one soon............
early sunrise morning walks............
4kms on Sat...........5kms on Sunday.........
Diddles little creatures quilt just needed sashing and borders and it was done..........looks great............and the projects on the left grew to the ones below..........
Lea worked on the whales and Alison a Tilda quilt.............She actually brought it along last year but the yardage was not right and she needed to get some extra bits...........
This is Miss Jules quilt from retreat last year..........
I hadn't seen it all together........
Miss Jules had nothing to show for the weekend as she was busy cutting and working out a new quilt..........
Kate who cursed and cursed...........actually I think everyone cursed the little log cabins but she is in love now..........
Cool shadows............
So cute..........back again for part 2...........
Catch you later.......

  1. It looks like you all had a great time. Of course Miss Kate made a great pincushion. She is always quick and does nice work. Mick wondered if you had one to many G & Ts before starting your version? Perish the thought. I'm sure you will soon have a replacement. Gorgeous morning photos.
