Fiona and I have just enjoyed another wonderful weekend of friendship and stitching at our retreat, Stitching in the Hills. We have had a lovely time preparing our patterns for this day especially as they were inspired but the wonderful range, Chateau Rouge, by French General. It is a delightful range! Because it is predominately red we did have a bit of a red theme for our weekend. Here are the samples of the projects that the ladies had to work on this time. There were several smaller items but if they wished to add a bit more fabric, then they could make the quilt. Their kits included a charm square pack of the range and a larger piece plus the stitching and backing fabrics, hexagons, canvas, buttons and threads. It was lovely to see everyone stitching these designs over the weekend. It was chilly outside but the room and the friendship (and all the chatting and eating) kept us quite warm!
