Phew! Seriously where is this year going???
3 - 5 March we held our 2nd Scrapbooking retreat here in Warrington and it was a huge success. A few annoying niggles with the hotel but our side of the event went smoothly & the classes went down a storm. I have an amazing team of girls supporting me and am truly blessed for that. We auctioned my Unfurnished Quilt as mentioned and I am thrilled to confirm it raised £216. Added to that other donations from bits and pieces we did over the weekend, a cheque for £500 was sent to our local Macmillan Cancer Support offices.
In other news, I did a bit of scrapping the other weekend. I am somewhat ashamed to admit this is the first page I have created this year *blushes* - scrapping has taken a bit of a back seat to sewing of late - it's something I need to do in my craft room where sewing can be done here in the lounge with Ross. Here is what I created:
I have also been sewing. My Red & Turquoise blocks are now finished & awaiting the grey Kona sashing I have purchased - hopefully that will be here in the next couple of days. And then last night I finally sat myself down to make a friendship bag for my BFF Lianne (pattern from PS I Quilt - love that blog!)
Hopefully I will not take as long to post again. And hopefully I am not just sitting here talking to myself!
