|Adare House, Victor Harbor, South Australia|
The location was one of the historic homes in Victor Harbor, Adare House, on a hill overlooking the ocean. It is about an hour's drive from Adelaide. Far enough away to think you are escaping, and close enough so the drive is not tedious if it is cold and raining.
I spent quite a bit of time mulling over what to take to sew......you got to make serious use of the time. I was thinking of something that had a deadline, or a UFO. I settled on the Kim McLean "Flower Pots" quilt that has been sitting in the box for about a year. All the main parts were finished, and I just had to get the borders and sashing sewn.
I figured I needed a plan for the weekend, so i started straight away on the Friday afternoon and got one whole border strip appliqued, and several strips of 2 1/2" sewn together, ready to be cross cut into small strips of 2" squares.
By Sunday morning I was able to start the assembly of the parts.

The house we stayed at was really beautiful. It is now owned by the Uniting Church and run as a business for camps and retreats. The interior is beautiful as well, with many stained glass windows, stair cases, and open fire places

Thanks to the Coromandel Vally Quilters for letting me come a long to their camp, and I certainly hope I did not behave too badly, and might be invited back again next year!
