I can't believe it was a week ago today that I headed off to Gippsland with one of my patchwork groups on a retreat in Rawson. The weather was beautiful and I had so much fun with all the girls. Saturday night is always trivia night and as you can see most of us enjoy a drink or 2.  Nadia was a fun sewing buddy who also loves doing EPP , loves civil war reproduction fabrics and also enjoys a wine.

I didn't get a lot done but that should be no surprise. I did get some Lucy Boston filler blocks done, and some hand pieced sashings and corner stones for my current little Civil War quilt. Oh, and I completed a block too.
I think I made personal history by only spending a grand total of $16-00 when visiting 3 patchwork shops on the way. What did I buy?  Two half meters of fabric that I liked.
I tried to do this blog post from my tablet but the photos I took on it would not upload to the blog so I emailed the pics to myself, copied them to Word and saved them in my pictures to do the blog post on the main computer. What a long way around that was!  If anyone knows how I can put pics on my blog using my tablet I will be forever grateful.
 Thanks so much for visiting me.
Angel Blessings.
