This time last week I was sitting at my machine at retreat sewing my Granny Squares together.
That seems so long ago already. LOL!
Would you like to see what came home with me?
We all received a very useful project box
filled with lots of goodies.
My lovely friend Maddy from Woomba Woomba flew down from Queensland to join us on retreat. Maddy had knitted me a pair of slippers and they have been on my feet ever since (well, when I'm inside). They fit nicely into my other slippers which were actually a little big. Now my feet are always so warm and cosy. The added bonus of this is that the slippers won't wear out on the slate floor. Maddy also gave me a ruler holder (it is folded in the photo) in colours I love. Thank you so much Maddy. You certainly spoilt me and it was so lovely to see you again in person.
I only did a little shopping. A couple of fat quarters, some homespun, a reel of white thread (not pictured) as I didn't have any to sew my blocks with and two mini charm packs of Bonnie and Camille's new Scrumptious range. I am in love with this range. Can't wait for it to arrive in the shops.
Mel and I also went to an antique store in Ballarat.
I found this lovely doily holder from 1930.
It was in such a good condition.
Only that one little mark on the inside lid. (The doily is one I picked up at an op shop the other day for 50c!)
This is the back.
Last Sunday Mitchell's team won and are now straight into the Grand Final next week.
Unfortunately Nelson's team lost the Semi Final but being second on the ladder means they have a second chance. Tomorrow they play the Preliminary Final.
Good luck Nelson!
