Slightly hungover, massively tired (exhausted) and looking forward to the next classes, the air of excitement seemed more subdued with people chatting and stitching and not the all our squeeling of the previous day but my class with Brioni was really interesting, some great girls and some good tips, she even taught me how to square up my blocks (yeahhhh) well hopefully I'll remember :O)
I got to try the Pfaff machines that they'd loaned to the retreat, on the whole they were nice but my Janome still has more to offer me so i'll be sticking, even though we got £100 voucher off.
This is going to be a Christmas placemat and I think it'd be great in all different fabrics and combo's.
After lunch and an impromptu quick half hour with trudi giving us some great tips on FMQ it was time for John's class. I was quite relieved I hadn't signed up for something that involved alot of measuring and accuracy because I was totally whacked and straight lines wasn't going to happen anyway.
The retreat was really well organised, people gelled really well, not surprising as we all had the same hobby/job in common and we love what we do, what's not to like. Prizes and giveaways were fantastic, the FQ guys out of this world, so down to earth, lovely, happy, gorgeous people. I've met people I've followed (stalked) for months and probably years that I never imagined in my wildest dreams I'd get to meet and it's definitely a weekend not to forget :)
