Retreat at Warwick ... Part 2


These are the last of my piccies for our retreat......
Christmas in July Dinner made be Maree and desert by Lynda....
Silly women taking piccies of each other doing the same.....so much fun really.


                               One must dress up for Christmas.


                                Boy oh boy it was yummie.....


                                 A walk through the gardens, so relaxing.....



Now these are lollie teeth and you really had to be there I guess to see the funny side of this, those teeth were turning up in the strangest  places.


House and craft shop


 The girls are strolling along admiring some lovely bird houses.... naturally they are going to the craft shop.


  Morning tea at Bryson's cafe and gift shop.......did we buy anything you ask..... well naturally.
                                                 Teresa, Sandi, Marilyn and De.


                             Lemon Meringue Pie........ great.


                            Some of my purchases at the lovely cafe.


I made this "Berrybranch Wool Tote" by "The Birdhouse" its very cute and will get a lot of use.
Doesn't look like much for 3 days work I know but my other sewing was secret stuff and I can't show it just yet.


Chooky made a surprise visit which was lovely.



What a fantastic group of girls and I had the most wonderful time with them..... lots of eating, chatting, sewing and of course lots of laughing..... Thank you so much ladies for a great time and I'm so looking forward to next year.

Maree, Teresa, Marilyn, De, Sandi, me, Lynda, Cheryl and Alison in the front..... if you pop over to their blogs you are sure to find more great photos.


Since I got home I have finished my "Fernhill" wall hanging by Lynette Anderson and I'm so pleased with it, leaving the space on the lounge room wall was a great incentive to get it done.


Well I think that's about it for the time being so I should get back to my stitching and have a cuppa as well.
