It did not disappoint. The house is a lovely cottage, and because there were only four of us, we each got our own bedroom with lovely handmade quilts. My room had a fireplace - very cute. The sewing studio is separate to the house and is a massive space with a huge table (lots of powerpoints) for all sewing machines and overlockers, several irons, a kitchenette for tea and coffee (and cake!), and a toilet. This is where we spent all our time.
We sewed like there was no tomorrow. I made seven garments - one of which required so much unpicking and alteration that I wanted to send it to the Sewing Naughty Corner never to return. It is made with Liberty though - Leith, Lara, and Anna were never going to let me leave it as a UFO.
I'm going to review each garment separately in the coming weeks, but thought you might like some dodgy iPhone photos as sneak peeks. I'm not going to give pattern info or anything - promise it is all coming soon!
Phew! It might look like I didn't shower in some of these photos, but I promise I ate, showered and slept (a little bit). Lancefield is a lovely town and I even explored a wee bit on Saturday with Lara. There was a shop there with a lot of vintage fabric, but we were both very restrained. Mostly because the prices were a bit too expensive, but I was still very good!
Thank you to Leith, Lara, and Anna for an excellent weekend, and stay tuned for proper reviews on the things I sewed.
P.S. - like my new blog layout/template? Thanks to Michael for all his hard work on it - he's a gem!
