I should have taken photos on the first day when we arrived as it was picture perfect with the sun shining on the lake but never mind, these photos with the cloudy sky will give some idea of how pretty it was.
Friday evening was spent getting to know everyone followed by a delicious meal together which was then followed by a ‘show-and-tell’ by Anni. She is a fabulous designer and her fabric ranges are just so pretty. We really enjoyed getting to know her over the weekend. She is a really lovely person, so gentle and kind and generous. Here she is giving some tips to a couple of the ladies (see one of her beautiful quilts in the background):

Isn't the material just the cutest!
I’ve finished the hexagon panels for my bag. Here’s a photo of what I’ve done so far and you’ll have to watch this space for the finished project in the not too distant future (I hope):
Too soon it was Sunday afternoon and it was pack up time. It was such a neat weekend of great food, learning new techniques, a lot of fun and most of all fabulous company.
Here we are all together holding up a quilt made using one of Anni’s patterns (A Boy’s Story), made by one of the ladies and Cornelia holding her little purse:
If you haven’t seen any of Anni Downs patterns before you should pop over to her website and have a look: http://www.hatchedandpatched.com.au/. I’m sure you’ll feel inspired when you see her beautiful designs.
Until next time treasure your creative moments.
