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....



plus a beautiful table runner....



Teresa bound her gorgeous quilt....



plus these wonderful projects.....




Nor was working on her table runner, dolly and stitchery



Sandi's terrific projects.....




Jenny's fantastic projects

The quilt inspectors..... 
this is a lovely quilt in the lounge room of the house....


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






Sadly our stay must come to an end .....

Thanks girls for another fabulous retreat and I look forward to the next one....


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


So it is Toodles from me again....
