The retreat committee this year put on a lovely tea party for us on Saturday night with delicious cakes and fruit.
In the middle of the property there is a lake facing the dining room where you can see the fish jump.
I did quite a lot of piecing on a new quilt, and took my Featherweight to do it on. I wanted to get more familiar with this old machine and knew there were others present who could help me if I ran into problems - and of course I did ! Nevertheless, the Featherweight is a real pleasure to sew on, makes a lovely straight stitch and is small enough that you can still talk to the people sitting opposite ! Every year I think I will get so much done, and take far too many projects. It's fun being able to choose what you want to work on ! And also this year I did quite a lot of shopping - one of the shops nearby had a sale, and I was able to buy some more of the Winterthur museum's John Hewson prints.
