Out of the workroom

The retreat, that is. I moved it out earlier this week. It's not completely finished but it's almost there and I really needed the space on my workbench to work on other things. So ... high time I showed you the latest pictures.

This is the decking on the front of the retreat...

and here is the other end of the decking, complete with sewing box at the ready beside the wicker chair.

and here's a peek in through the door with the light on. I'll show you more pictures of the inside next time.

At our dollshouse club we're getting ready for the annual show and this year we're each making a table for a table-top sale room. The owner of my table is selling patchwork materials and quilts.

It's not quite finished yet - the baskets need filling with threads and I need to think of something else to put down there on the floor - perhaps some quilters' rulers or something.


  1. I like the atmosphere in the retreat.
    Fantastic work for the dollshouse club.

  2. Your retreat is wonderful I love it. It makes you want to sit and relax on it :) Your club work is beautiful.

  3. Ilove your retreat, there would be nothing better than to relax on that deck in the sunshine, doing some sewing, surrounded by pretty potted flowers. Your table looks sure to be a hit too, such tiny patchword!

  4. I really like what you've done to the Retreat and can just imagine myself sitting out on the deck/terrace :)

  5. the quilters table looks great, I love the quilts! And the retreat looks so nice that i would love to book a short stay there ;)

  6. The retreat is lovely. It is well named as a 'retreat' - just looking at it makes me want to step in and relax. And your patchwork table is great - you already have a lot of detail on it and the quilt is beautiful. Sandie
