As was to be expected, with 2 babies in the car, there were several stops to change nappies and feed. The 2.5 hour trip quickly blew out to 4 hours, not helped by the fact that google maps seemed to keep directing me down a road that did not exist!
So what exactly is a craft retreat I hear you ask? Well let me tell you... If you think school camp- communal hall, bunk beds etc. Then, take away the bossy teachers. Add, wine, good food and more sewing machines than you have ever seen in one place and you have a craft retreat!
We had a blast, there was all kinds of crafty goodness going on- sewing, knitting, spinning, quilting, felting, cross stitch, button making... the list goes on. So many skilled and talented ladies.
I managed to achieve a surprisingly good amount, given I had the little one in tow.
I made Holly a new skirt
Isla a new dress
and Both girls an I-spy bag
Now I just have to wait for the next one in 6 months time!
Oh and for those of you who may have wondered. The 2 babies were so worn out by craft camp that they slept the ENTIRE way home. So we made it home in recommended 2.5 hours and no, we did not follow google maps on the return trip.
