Oh, craft camp. So so good.
This time we were very sadly missing Janet who had Life Stuff to deal with, and we celebrated Caroline's birthday, which reminds me i never shared pictures of the March craft camp when it was my birthday, but if you look here click click linky link you can see a champagne glass and some balloons and there are other shots there too. So, Caroline's turn this time.
The food was sensational, as always. So was the company.
I made a few things, including a quilt top for the middle lad who has requested a quilt in the bruise palette.
There were noisy galahs everywhere ...
... some cold crisp mornings and nights ...
Three (!) beautiful quilts by Julie ...
... and some cetacean action from Jen.
Re-entry to real life is tough after such a wonderful long weekend of sewing, knitting by the fire, eating, talking and laughing with a marvellous group of women. But being amongst people doing what they love, whether that's sewing clothes, making quilts, knitting doll cardigans or drawing, is tremendously nourishing and restorative. It keeps me going.
