Last weekend my sewing group went on our annual 4 day retreat.
We book in to a hotel not to far from Oslo, buying an all inclusive conference pack - 3 meals a day + 2 conference rooms - one for sewing, the other one for setting up design walls.
I brought 3 projects:
An old Ufo-BOM for sewing machine + hand piecing - Alle Fugler by Northern Quilts
A pair of socks on my knitting needles
My red cross stitch project
I did make some progress - the stitchery on these blocks were already made.
I did make a few threads every day on my red embroidery - it was perfect for winding down at night before bed, in my room, or as here, as my morning thread(s) before going to breakfast, seeing the day waking up and checking Instagram.
This year's project that we all do together was a nice mini bag.
I like the mini bag, and I made mine without handles. We all worked from kits, and I can see some improvement that I want to do next time I made one.
And what happened to my knitting, you might think?
To be honest, nothing much, not a stitch!
My friend Gretha has uploaded more photos from the retreat, if you want to see what we were up to through the weekend.
I am already looking forward to next year - same time, same friends, same place :-)
