The NOTYQ Retreat

NOTYQ, my quilting guild, is 21 this year and our retreat had a birthday party theme.
The centre picture shows the view from my bedroom window.  So beautiful. There was dancing, singing, eating, sewing, friendship and many many laughs. A huge thank you to the ladies who organised it for us...and to Christine for driving me and looking after me and for being such a wonderful friend.

On retreat I finished this Rosalie Quinlan stitchery and started sewing my hexie flower quilt together.

Where ever I go I seem to take more and more stuff with me, so I thought this Carry Everything Tote was a perfect pattern for me.
There is a fabulous tutorial too.  Just follow this LINK to fabulous Melly Sews. Huge thanks to Melissa for sharing it with us.
Happy stitching
Love
