So much to share

 I have had such a good week, last Friday I headed off to Camp Banksia for a quilting retreat with 15 other ladies. Boy we had some fun. Saturday night we had a little halloween party. That was hilarious, we all dressed up as witches.Sorry i don't have more photos, they were mostly on my phone.
 Here is Jo & Jen all dressed  up for the occasion.

 These were our sleeping quarters, very nice and toasty warm.

 Our sewing stations all set up.
 I worked on these pretty flower blocks,
 I made a few gifts, these were for Cathy.
 I took binding to sew on my new quilt but I never got that done.
 I adore this quilt, its so pretty and made mostly from my stash except the backing.

 We had a little swap at camp. I made this binding goodie bag for Sarah.

 Lynda made me this beautiful folding pouch, its so pretty. In my favourite colour and made from cath Kidston fabric. I love it and can't wait to fill it with sewing supplies. Thankyou Lynda. xx

 A couple of ladies left early and at the last minute we decided to take some group photos.
 Sweet Lib made us all a cute Halloween thread bin.
 Sarah & Lynda.
I had an amazing time, thankyou ladies for such a fun filled weekend. I hope you all had as much fun as me.

Your retreat looks like a lot of fun! I have wanted to go on a quilting retreat for years! I have lots of friends, but none of them quilt. I can hardly wait for the retreat next summer, my first one! Your quilt is beautiful!!!
