Stitching at the Waters Edge Retreat

This is the glorious view down to the river at "Waterslea" Conference Centre where the "Stitching at the Waters Edge Retreat" was held this past weekend. It was so lovely to wake up each morning and look out at this magnificent view! No one ventured into the swimming pool though!

This wonderful group of trees shaded an area with little seats and rocks to sit on. Unfortunately my knee didn't really allow me to venture down the hill to check it out!

I really particularly enjoyed my session with Leanne Beasley on her techniques for making her fabulous quilts! She is such an inspiring person and gave so freely of her knowledge and time - it was a delight to spend time with her! (And now I'm so inspired to design a quilt using her techniques - so watch this space!)

And this is Rosie's Christmas version using red on white of the previous design which was white on red! Beautiful stitchery again using the lovely new Cosmo variegated threads! Very nice to stitch with!
