Fabulous weekend at Circle Retreat

What a wonderful weekend! I again had the pleasure of going up to the circle retreat at Buderim and was not in the slightest bit disappointed! It was so relaxing, just being able to chip away at a couple of UFO's while enjoying a laid back atmosphere with everything at your beck and call. We even got to Eumundi markets on Saturday morning which was a real treat. I haven't been in a few years and therefore very excited to see some lovely new things. A couple of stalls did manage to relieve me of some money, but a girl can never have too many skirts right? ..... or necklaces.... or fabric brooches.....

A girls weekend away can not be complete without a stop at a Quilt Shop, and The Patchwork Angel filled that brief very well. Again, it had been a few years since I had visited the shop and I loved having a look around ... and I may have bought some fabric..... or even signed on for a Block of the Month..... BUT IT WASN'T MY FAULT!!! I'm genetically designed and created to buy fabric so blame my Mum ok? Another bonus was that I got to meet Penni, the owner of the Patchwork Angel who was so lovely and welcoming.

I thought I took more photos, but obviously not... sorry Stacey. I did take one of Eileen's magnificent version of 'Sylvias Bridal sampler' from the Elm Creek Quilts. She has one more row to go I think, but it looks absolutely amazing as you can see.
