I also added a few squares to my fabric sampler as well as some hand quilting on calico & linen. Next time I'll be more prepared, perhaps cut things out before going - lesson learned. I should also read the pattern instructions before just sewing pieces together. There was a little unpicking, just a little + a little.
Whilst this isn't the cottage we stayed in (in Warragul), it's a photo taken from the front porch looking at the neighbour's verandah - I just liked it :)
It was so nice to get away.
