 The first two photos are the calm in the morning, before a storm of sewing.

I must say that our group of quilters are a good advert for Sewezi tables too!

As usual it was a great weekend and everyone did heaps of sewing. I sewed some scrappy trip around the world blocks, here they are set out on my rooms floor at St Francis's.

Donna sat beside me so I could annoy her. She was sewing a UFO from a few years ago. I expect she will have it finished soon as she was so keen to get it done.

Sandy (right) sewed this whole top while at retreat and still had time to start a new project!
I'm looking forward to seeing how Sandy quilts this as she always comes up with good ideas.
