On Retreat...

Having a lovely quiet, yet productive time away at a stitching week in the Blue Mountains.
I've run away from home with all my supplies, and left the family at home to look after the dog!
More than a little time has been spent  eating and talking, so not as much sewing has occured as you might think. LOL.
In 2 days, I've achieved...

 And of course, the obligatory support of the attending shop.

Those 2 greyish blue fabrics are so soft.  I initially thought they were from the same range, they go together so well.  But no, 2 entirely different ranges and  manufacturers.
The panel is from the John Hewson Winterthur Museum range that has been recently reproduced.  I was very happy to be able to purchase this piece.

More sewing tomorrow.


  1. They are looking great. Oh I love the panel

  2. How lovely for you to have a get-away to such a beautiful place. Those teeny hexies are cute-as-buttons! That's a pretty panel too. It will be interesting to see what you do with it.

  3. I am going to my first retreat in October of this year and fear I will do the same as you - come home with little accomplished - except having a good time :) Sounds like you got your money's worth!
