Beaudesert Quilters Retreat

Over the weekend I attended the Beaudesert Quilter August Retreat at Mt Tamborine with Helen, Sandi and 30 other fabulous quilters. Every year there is a theme where most of the ladies dress up for Saturday Night and  this year it was Masquerade & Bling.

Let the parade start
My laughing buddies, Helen and Sandi...not much dressing up here...

our gorgeous  Noela and a trio of lovelies
I managed to get my Tis the Season quilt top together while I was there. I must get it quilted before the end of September...Chookyblue's cracking her whip as this Stitch-a-long is coming to an end.
Overall...a great weekend.

I Believe

I couldn't resist making Annie Smith's latest doll, 'I Believe'  featured in Homespun's Christmas in July Issue.
The little elf is so cute...fiddly but worth the effort.

 I didn't have the fabric Annie has used so I played around with a few bit's and pieces I had. 
I ended up making two dolls before I was happy with my choice so now 'I Believe' has a friend.
