Summer School 2016

Mid-January means my annual favourite stitchy adventure - the Blue Mountains for Karen Cunningham's Summer School. It was a quick trip this year and I was exhausted when I got there but at least I got to go.  I started this year's correspondence quilt "Little Tree" in the first workshop on the Wednesday & Thursday...
...and just keep on going...the quilt pattern for the second workshop is happy to wait its turn...doesn't look like much for five days work, but what with socialising, shopping, eating, socialising, shopping, eating, the days are full...he he he...The applique is only back basted as I was soooo tired that when I attempted to applique my eyes just couldn't deal with concentrating so I moved on to the hand piecing of the border instead.

Luckily I was passing through Bathurst on the way to the mountains during opening hours so I didn't miss out on my annual visit to The Home Patch - yay!  A copy of Anni's new book - The Story of My Day - just might have followed me home.

Another fabulous Summer School, it really is the best medicine..countdown to 2017!

Happy Stitching...
