Valentines Day with the girls.....

   I have never had or given a Valentine pressie so this year changed that.........

We ......the Tuesday girls decided to have a Fun Valentine Day.....

so on arrival at Sandi's home I thought I should get into the spirit of it all.....

the silly look is Norreen's fault, she said "smile" .......
have you ever had to smile with a rose in your mouth I ask, it was a fake flower but difficult just the same.


As usual Sandi had set a beautiful table for us....

      
This photo says it all I think......

what a proposal.....


Food of course



Gifts....





Stitching...... not a lot of that happened really.....


Our challenge was to make " tacky cards for each other" but I forgot to get piccies of them....

Thank you my lovelies for another fun day.....


Love you girls heaps.....

Toodles.....

Warwick retreat Jan 2017

  Once again we had a wonderful time on retreat.....

this time we stayed in the house and of course it didn't disappoint....
such a beautiful place to spend craft time with friends.





On a walk around the grounds I had to get a few piccies....








So relaxing....


 On arrival we had the usual tea and scones..... yum...
and in my favourite china, Royal Albert Country Roses....


Then to check out our room



My bed....


Lots of stitching and giggling of course....

Sandi...Teresa...Norreen



Janice was working on the quilt at the back......Jenny....



Sandi...Teresa....Inca...



The following day we were off to Bryson's for morning tea....


In the evening Glenis brought us wine and nibbles....




Of course there has to be one silly photo....
I was enjoying a very comfortable lounge chair and the girls thought it would be funny to put a bottle of grog in my arm and take a photo so I said "ok .... go for it"
and here it is..... funny part is I don't drink but it was funny and I was sliding off the chair.....
no I wasn't asleep either just mucking about....



How many more silly photos do these girls have......



My sewing.... all ready now for quilting....


My cushions


and lastly.... 
my little wall hangings....




Projects by the girls....
Inca was working on the star border for her quilt....

Teresa bound her gorgeous quilt....

The quilt inspectors.....

 There is a fantastic bakery in Warwick and they make French Vanilla slices which are the best.....

We stopped off at Aratula for our usual treat on the way home.....

Sunday Stitchers


                 Our first get together for 2017....
                            Show and tell.....
                           



The new room we have this year is also used for dance so naturally these girls had to show us how flexible they are and to revisit some childhood memories for them....



So much fun as usual.....

I'm off to Warwick tomorrow for a lovely retreat with the Tuesday Girls and friends.....

So toodles for now
