Waters Edge Retreat Day 2

Day 1 ended with Sam and I sitting up in our beds until just past midnight stitching our 'Anni' project. We woke to the sound of rain on the roof at around 6am - we opened the blinds and started stitching again - waving to our neighbours as they wandered down to breakie. We headed down at around 8am to start our day, as we entered we saw our table 10 buddies waving from up the front. A yummy breakfast of bacon & eggs and a special guest (Anni Downs) and no dishes for us! What a way to start the day :)
We headed over to the stitching area to get in to it.

Our day was spent busy on our machines, on our table Bernie and Margaret were making Janelle's bag, Sandra and Lou were making Natalie's retreat seat and Sam & I continued on with Anni's table topper.
We headed over at night fall for a beautiful dinner - the food was sooo good but the company was even better. Table 10 had formed great friendships throughout the day and half way through dinner Sandra had us all laughing so hard Kim came to see if she had laid any eggs ;o The evening continued on with a show and tell - there were 42 quilts on show, some ladies even had a story to go with theirs. We all got back into it around 9pm when suddenly the music changed and we had a special guest - Salami from the land of 12 fat quarters!! Poor Kim - I still don't think she is over the shock. 
 The evening ended with Kim closing the room at 11.30pm. Table 10 headed over for one last cuppa and a chat before bed. We all headed to bed around 12.30 not with out possibly waking our neighbours - Sandra you are sooo naughty lol :)  
Bye for now & happy stitching xox
