Mini Retreat

What a great day yesterday at the Cottage, group members involved in the mini retreat were hard at it when the Grandie and I arrived to have a bit of a sticky.
Janet was tutoring the girls in this rather innovative wall hanging.  A Christmas tree decorated with small buttons - a.k.a. tree baubles - for you to display your Christmas cards, simply using paper clips!

 Lots of different fabric combinations for individual looks,  even a design change.

While Janet was busily assessing and guiding, Marcia was refueling with the aid of a cuppa.
The girls had a beautiful array of home baked goodies to go with their cuppas, and lunch was delish, toasted Turkish breads filled with Turkey, Brie, Cranberry etc. followed by fruit and sweet nibblies,  major yummo.

The Grandie shared some of his fave jokes with the gals for a bit of light relief, I'll bet you can't guess why the coco-pop crossed the road?
It was stuck to the chicken of course!

It was then time to move on to Janice's Christmas decorations, firstly a showing of what was on offer...
and then down to serious business.....
Sheila was to be next cab Tutor off the rank with her Tutorial on these wonderfully personalised Christmas Stockings, Sheila has made one for each of her Grandies, but only had a selection of 3 to show yesterday, (I won't tell you how many Grandies she has, if you are a bit light on in the Grandie stakes it's enough to make you weep.......truly.....ask Janice).
Sadly, the Grandie and I were too late for Sue's wonderful hexagons,  fancy being able to totally machine assemble hexies and even use your machine to join them together to make so many different goodies. I'm sure we will be seeing some marvelous creations on the Show and Tell table in the near future.
