Embroidery Guild Regional Retreat


This weekend saw me at the regional retreat 60+ ladies gathered for 2 days at Tui Ridge in Rotorua.

The classes were varied and I chose to do an Anne Brocass class, I loved the piece but also because this lovely tutor is going to retire in December this year and this would have been my last chance to do another  class with her.



So here we are the "Tree's Class"
 
 
 
 
This is the project for the weekend by Anne Brocass
 
Work in progress Day 1

 
and here is my work in progress Day 2

It was a great 2 days ... the weather was abysmal but we were tucked up in a lovely room with a great wood fire burning away merrily,  there is still a lot of work to finish but I am determined to complete it with in the next few weeks..... I would like to say days but I know that is not going to happen.

  Tui Ridge Park ... it is found in a 420 acre reserve which contains all the facilities that your group will need to make the most of your time there. The Park has numerous outdoor facilities and activities as well as quality indoor facilities.
This park is owned and run by Seventh Day Adventist Church thus the catering  is  vegetarian ... but I can say we had the most amazing meals, very tasty and an abundant amount of food and I did not miss the fact that there was no meat at all or alcohol.
