I have been rather preoccupied lately getting everything organised for me annual Stitching by the Sea Retreat. Port Campbell is the perfect venue for my Retreat as there is plenty of accommodation and restaurants for those that stay.......and you really can't get a better view than this.....
The weather was perfect.....nice and sunny. We set up the room on the Friday and were happy that it was all done by 1.30pm.....Jodie had a Deb Ball to attend and I had baking to do.
The name badges were ready and waiting to the 46 ladies to arrive on the Saturday......my new card making supplies certainly came in handy!
The ladies didn't take long to get stuck into their stitching.......although I am sure that some were more productive than others!
And just like that the 2 days were over. I am sure that everyone had a great time, but if you attended and have any suggestions on if I can improve anything, please let me know.
I'd like to put out a special thank you to those ladies who helped pack up the chairs and tables. It certainly helped me to get home quicker and put my feet up!
And big big thank yous to:
Jodie who helped to set up, worked in the kitchen (even though we kept telling her to get out!), and for helping to pack up the shop and load the ute.
Emma and Hannah......Emma worked in the kitchen and Hannah worked the shop for me. We really do have 2 great kids young ladies.
Tabatha who worked off her Honeycomb Cheesecake by vacuuming the whole room......though she was very pleased when Shane showed up and got out the big vacuum cleaner for her to use! Tabatha also helped to pack everything up.......Thanks!
Oh and I can't forget Russell.....who patiently does what he is told....lol! He was missing on Sunday as he had go-karts in Cobden but was back just in time to pack the tables away and load up for the trip home. We (just) managed to squeeze everything in the 2 vehicles....phew!
For those interested in attending the Stitching by the Sea Retreat in 2018, it will be held on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th March. Registrations will open in October......more details later.
