Retreat Day

On Saturday I was lucky to be able to spend
the day with a fabulous group of ladies.....
 
Jo(Assistant Host), Roxanne, Fran(Our Host), Jan & Lorraine...
Suzie(My Bestie from Cobar) & Bev....
After lots of excitement, chatting , cups of tea
and slice we got into some sewing for the day....
I was working on the thread catcher to match the
"Bloom" Sewing Mat that I prepared earlier....
 
 
And here is the finished product!
I really wanted to finish it as I had decided to give
 the set to Suze for her Birthday which is today....
"Happy Birthday to my dear friend"
She had no idea and was so surprised when we all sang
 "Happy Birthday" to her complete with a mini birthday cake
and then I said what's a birthday without a
present and gave her the Sewing Set..... 
And yes there were hugs and tears were shed....
She loved it and I know she will put it to
good use in her sewing room back home....
What a wonderful day/evening we had....
A big THANKS to Fran and Jo for being the
perfect hosts for the day and to all the ladies
for welcoming Suze and keeping my secret....
Until next time, Happy Stitching
 
Kate
