Cardinal Colours Retreat

Phew!  Back online!  Nicholas has been upgrading our server and I have not been able to get online for a couple of days, EEK!  On the one hand, I love it as I am able to get so much done (sewing and housework this week), but hate it because I miss chatting to all my online friends!

Anyway, I’ve been dying to blog about my fabulous weekend at the Cardinal Colours Retreat in Eastbourne.cardinal colours retreat 2011 049

I love the seaside town of Eastbourne!  I took the opportunity late on Saturday afternoon to take a little walk with my camera, and just look at these starlings taking off to roost for the night!

This year, Lorna and I persuaded Janet and Sara from our Brighton crop to come along too (not that they needed much persuasion!)cardinal colours retreat 2011 057

It was lovely to meet with old and new friends:

That’s Sue and Jan, Chris and Debbie, another Debbie and Juliette, and new friends, Ann and Linda.

Come back for part 2 later, where I’ll show you some of the things we made.
