Fun in my fabric world....

FAR away FUN goes on...

What a great weekend....FABRIC surrounded us...but as the evening wore on we had to resort to sewing by FLOODLIGHT!
Chookyblue was sewing with chenille...you know that meant FLUFF swirling everywhere...
sewers in FLANNELETTE pyjamas seemed to be the rule for most...
they even became the new FASHION for walkers! FUNNY!
A FEW FIZZY drinks and the night was FILLED with the sounds of FAUX ABBA singing & songs from my Ipod...A blast from the past! How FUNNY to see everybody singing along with "Girls on the Avenue"...oh we felt young again! LOL! A FINE time was had by all...except for the FEAR created when a grouchy Yowie FRIGHTENED the late crew! Lucky FAIRYGIRL was safely asleep!
We woke to our FINAL day...finished quilts ready to be FILMED...
Lea's second African quilt...
beautiful repro 9 patch...
sweet chenille...
DD's FIRST quilt top...
We all felt so proud of her!
Final pics & the trip home still to come!

Beautiful quilts. Did E enjoy making her first quilt??? Did Tooth Fairy purchase her fabric's from Africa for her African inspired quilt or elsewhere??? mmm chenille is always messy, at least it was warm snow for you girls!

Fantastic quilts, aren't retreats with good friends the best? xo
