Retreat linky up!

Are you all excited because I know I'm very excited!


In just 5 sleeps time Hunter and I will be hopping on a train and heading to the smoke for the Fat Quarterly Sewing Retreat.


I've still got mucho to do in preparation for this (as usual I'll be panicking at the last minute). I have got all the gubbins required for each of the classes I'm signed up to, they're just not prepped yet!




The biggest picture in the mosaic shows my white Kona cotton and assorted Cosmo flosses for Aneela's embroidery class which I'm taking on Saturday afternoon. I am a huge fan of Aneela's work and I must confess to hoarding all of her fabric lines and am excitedly awaiting the release of her embroidery book. I actually might pee my pants when I meet her in person which in light of the huge baby I parted with 7 weeks is a very real possibility. Yikes!


The top right picture is my stash of Melody Miller fabrics which I will be using in Lynne's English Paper Piecing class to make a "Postcards from Paris" cushion. Again I'm very excited to be in a class of Lynne's, if only to heckle her from the stalls!! Haha! Only joking Lynne!


The bottom right picture shows my jelly roll of Moda's Half Moon Modern which I will be using in John's Wonky Log Cabin class that I am doing on Sunday afternoon. Again can't wait to meet John and see what his class brings.


I'm also doing Tacha's Paper Piecing class and want to make her fabulous hexagon cushion. I've no idea what the hell fabric I'm using for this one, hence no picture! Think I'll pull from my scraps to coordinate with the cushion I'll be making in Lynne's class.


Everyone will clearly know who I am as I'll be the one with the baby in tow but here's a picture just in case.


So so looking forward to meeting you all and if you're going but haven't linked up yet - go do it now!!
