Ok where to begin, i have been so snowed under in preps for the retreat - that i have not posted for a bit. today I am just resting and trying to catch back up, it was a huge weekend with loads of laughter.
OK well I have a few thankyous, for the fantastic Happy Mail i have recieved in the last couple of weeks.....the below is the image of the Swirly Cupcakes from the pattern that arrived in the post - thanks to the blog rak that I won over on Angels come to Play thanks Shelley I look forward to getting to play with my pattern.
Oh and you should see what the girls and I created using these beauties that arrived last week.
and just look at these yummies.....from Anna, over at the Around the quilt block Blog it was Anna's birthday and she gave away the gifts, I was one of the lucky ones.....Then there was all the fantastic Cards from the Masculine Card Swap over on the FA Forum.....sorry didn't get to take a photo of this lot.
Today there was this Bear....wow what a surprise....Linda thankyou.....she is gorgeous and will look awesome at christmas.
OK - now on to the creating....well there were these MUG BAGS that i embroidered and created as thankyous for all the girls on the DT that help me with the Retreats.
Next up came some Birthday stitching - Amie's just getting into Owl's so I found this pattern, and created it in her favourite colours...lime and pink.
Then came Paula's Birthday - this is a journal cover, with place for a pencil, you could also slip in some notelets, and I have created a pocket at the back and included some stamps.
Next up was my Pay It Forward Gift from Last years round of Pay it Forward, it was my last one - this one being for Leah.....I hope she likes it. I opted for the handbag, as promised and included some odds and ends with it....
Lastly - here are a couple of pages from my retreat scrapping.
