Budsmam liberation weekend

I can post this now!!! now that the news about my retirement is out in the open i can post about my fantastic retirement weekend with the loveliest bunch of chums!

I started planning this last August, at that point i thought i was going to leave in may of this year, for a variety of reasons that got delayed and i will now leave in August. i was handing in my notice in May so we all sttill went ahead. I put together a group of lovely chums, chums who have helped me through the years.
What to Take? What to pack? Well I picked a rather special pattern from the Jenni Smith sewing with liberty book. I want to make the Discovery quilt in liberty. 
Oh my goodness I almost wept wheni saw this lovely entrance again. We were in what I like to call the ballroom, lovely airy spacious room.

I popped into the Cayzer room for a look.
I hadthe same bedroom as  before!
All setup waiting for chums to Arrive!

On the Friday night we had a show and tell! Here is lovely Sue with her lockdown makes.
