Sunday morning's class was Lynne's Foundation Paper Piecing where I opted to make a cushion cover using Melody Millers awesome fabrics and co-ordinating scraps. Here's the first block in progress:

This was a great class and under Lynne and Mandy's watchful eyes I mastered the technique without much problem! In fact I really love this technique and the completed cushion is awesome (it will feature in a post very soon!)
Lunchtime saw John getting some boy time with Hunter so I could eat my lunch!! Everyone was so helpful with the little fella and it really helped me get the most out of the weekend. In fact John spent most of his Sunday afternoon class teaching whilst holding Hunter so that I could actually get to a machine and sew. How amazing is that? I am truly blessed with the best friends ever!

When the retreat came to an end it really was very emotional! I mean there were tears and everything!! It was obvious that beers were required to celebrate and later in the evening a lovely meal out was had with my bestest sewing buddies!!
