Two Rivers Retreat post....finally.

If you would like a place for a small gathering of 'quilty' friends for a weekend, can I recommend to you Two Rivers winery in the Upper Hunter? Several weekends ago we made progress on lots of projects while enjoyed  the view and the serenity, not to mention great company. Below you can see almost all of us watching the sunset over the valley, we carried our wine and nibblies and our sewing up to the lookout. It was lovely, we sat there until it was too dark to see our stitches anymore.

 Cardygirl was there for a while working on this beautiful creation.
So was Fairyfloss working on some really cute bags. 
I just love this red and white number Kylie worked on.
Julie (can you believe STILL NO BLOG!! ) was there making this lovely quilt from her dad's ties. Sadly he passed away last year and he was a man of many, many ties. A lovely project to remember him by.

A close up for you.

Bags were a popular project. Caron and Susan finished some lovely bags made form French General fabric.

What did I work on?
Well I raw edge appliqued 'Oh Christmas Tree!' you saw in my last post. I also caught up on Toes In the Sand BOM.
Here is block 5....

and block 6.
Today I finished block 7. So now I am all caught up....again!
Lots of cutting in this one. Took ages to complete. There are 86 triangles and hexagons of varying sizes to make those two triangles.

Hot, dry and windy here today. Fingers crossed for some rain soon. My grass is now brown AND crunchy. I will leave you with a bit more of the scenery around Two Rivers.
