Committee Retreat 2013

The Committee escaped to the country this weekend and headed down to the St John of God’s Retreat Centre at Shoalwater for a bit of bonding and relaxation. Some Retreaters produced more than others but all in all it was a fun few days.

Mylene brought all her scraps to cut up and went home with the same amount she brought with her
QQ Editor Mylene brought her stash of fabrics to cut up into squares but didn’t seem to make any inroad into the pile!
