A Special Saturday

Saturday was a special day - for two reasons. The first being that it was our wedding anniversary. 17 happy years together for Marty and I. Because I was going to be up and out very early on Saturday morning, Marty presented me with this gorgeous Cyclamen plant on Friday night. He didn't want me wondering on Saturday whether he'd remembered or not. Usually we both forget, so it was a very sweet gesture.

And the second reason it was a big day was my teaching appointment. I was lucky enough to be asked to teach at the Southern Cross Quilters annual retreat which was held here in Adelaide.

Here are some of the ladies working away. I was teaching needle-turn applique, and more specifically, the table runner you can just see on the table. All the ladies in my group were just delightful, and for me (being the nervous Nellie that I am) it was just the very best day.

In fact, it was such a beautiful day all round, that for a while some of us dragged our chairs out on the balcony and soaked up the sun. Get a load of that view - such a lovely location for a quilting retreat!

I'm glad you enjoyed retreat and that your class was a success. I really miss Adelaide's beaches! The table runner is lovely. Phill and I usually forget our anniversary too, so it's nice to see we're not alone LOL.
