Retreat was great! It was soooo nice not to have to wash up, cook and do washing for a couple of days, although I came home to a sink full of dishes.
I wanted to have a finish to show for the weekend so I put together this Ooshka Boy. Pattern is by The Red Thread, as is the gorgeous face panel. This is the only boy she does at the moment. The boys love him and I will need to make a second because he is causing a few fights. I actually stuffed him when I got home but otherwise he was finished at the retreat.
This is the sweat shop! Mum is in the front left working on some machine embroidery. There was about 23 ladies and I won’t be able to tell you all their names. Too many people to get to know in one weekend for me – I am a shocker with names!
One of the mini workshops was decorating these travel mugs. The bottom screws off and we used special paper you embroider on and decorate with some flower punches and bling! Which then goes up in behind a clear layer and it is supposed to be water-proof.
Now for a little guessing game! The first person to guess correctly which mug I made will win something…I don’t know what yet but I will come up with something to suit the winner!
