A Crafty Weekend Retreat and a short holiday

Well, I have been away from this blog a bit longer than anticipated - the last 6 weeks, have just disappeared into the blink of an eye.

I have been slowly dealing with Dad's estate - it is still difficult to go through his things ..... they have just been dumped in the lounge and I go through them one box at a time.

I made a baby quilt for a baby shower for Mr Fixit's niece along with the following card:


On Friday, 3rd October 2014, I flew to sunny Queensland for a much needed crafty retreat put on by the lovely Kaye, from CraftMad.

Earlier in the year, I started saving some 'Mad Money' - here it is with a sneak peek of the gifts I made for the girls :)

Mad Money $65  :)
This year, there were 8 ladies in attendance:  Kaye, Mandy, Ruth, Therese, Tracey, Jan, Kerry & myself.

I had an absolute ball over our Crafty Retreat Weekend - I am really hoping I am able to go again next year ......... our theme will be Christmas :)  So thinking caps on, and off to get a new money box to start saving :)

These photos cover the Friday to Sunday :)  more photos will turn up on my Photography blog shortly
