A weekend away..

Last weekend I went away for a Christmas in July retreat with my good friend and a bunch of lovely quilters. As I left my hubby was making jokes about the weekend being all about eating and talking, and unfortunately I forgot to take my camera with me, but to prove I actually made something, here are some photos. I finally got my Spiked Wheel blocks together from the Travelling Circle Quilt Bee. I chose to do a pieced green and grey border with a blue square in between.
And here is a photo of the quilt in it's entirety..the colours aren't so great in this photo.
I'm still trying to figure out whether I add more borders, straighten up the edges, etc etc My friend and I also organised a Christmas project for everyone to do. We had bought some gorgeous Theodora Cleave buttons and this is my finished project.
But now it's back to reality as I wash my third load of washing, and finish off cleaning the bathroom.I hope you have a good week!
