Beaudesert Quilters Retreat - Mt Tamborine

I'm Back...had a wonderful weekend away with friends - laughed myself silly most of the time...and now very tired.  Yes I have unpacked my bags and now checking to see what I have missed in blog land.  I didnt get much sewing done while I was away, to busy talking and laughing and eating....but I had a good time anyway.  Our theme for the weekend was Masquerade & Bling, and boy do some people take it to extremes. What a blast..Hopefully I can download some photos to show you all. 
These are my roomies for the weekend - Tereasa (in the pink), Helen (in the white) and my best friend of all - Me (in the black).  lol.  We put our masks on for Saturday nights entertainment - dont we look fabulous.

Here is another photo of fellow retreaters - Raelee, Carol, and Wendy...arnt they just beautiful.
Tereasa finished her "T'is the season" quilt top - It came up so beautiful, I think it would look good hanging at my place....hint hint
Helen worked on a Jellyroll quilt - I can't wait to see it finished,  she insists that she is not a quilter - but I think she has been outed now.

The challenge for the retreat was to make a placemat for the dinner table, incorporating the theme of the weekend.  This was my creation - not very practical because I had a rather large piece of bling right in the middle - I just put my plate to the side or let it wobble.
Anyway its nice to be back - I have already said hello to all my pretties...oh and the hubby and kids...cant forget them.  cya all later.

  1. The pictures that you have shared are really nice. Mt tamborine is really a nice place to visit with family and friends. The place which I personally like the most and also want to visit at mt tamborine is mt tamborine skywalk. Next time I will plan a trip to mt tamborine with my friends and will have lots and lots of fun. Thanks for sharing your experience with us.
