I can't believe I'm behind again......

 No excuses just seems to happen......

Our "Poppy" has really been a nightmare but I'm happy to say or at least feel we are getting somewhere with her now..... phew....


I was able to get away for this years retreat at Warwick and it was great fun....

Chooky and here friend Julie joined in with us and it was a giggle-a-thon most of the time except for the outings which were many..... lots of eating....

WARNING....

A photo overload coming.....

My beautiful bed ....

Sandi was my cabin buddie.....




Busy sewing ......





We had a great Churn Dash Show and Tell.....
Chooky's churn dash SAL....
These 2 are mine and both will be Charity quilts when finished....



I'm in a spsot of trouble now as I have forgotten who made what....
hopefully I can add the names later.....






Lots of lovely projects being made by all the girls....

My Christmas Stockings....

Took me all retreat to make 50 of these.....

Susan, Lynda and Sandi gave me some assistance which was great.....

We had a small Christmas Stocking swap.....

A little tradition we started last year....

Hopefully there will be a stocking swag in my future....


My stocking was made by Sandi....
we also added a small pin.....


Our challenge was to make a zippy bag of your choice with our logo "Needlegirls" Sandi made for us....


A gift from Sandi....


Now for the cafe outings.....

The first was lunch at "The Garden Centre" which is our normal go to.....


Yes ....me being silly again....



Tuesday I took my Flower Garden quilt to "Bush to Border Quilting" for Julie to quilt.....
Julie now owns the "Busy Bee Quilt" shop at Stanthorpe...
A lovely craft shop.... if you are out that way it is worth a look for sure....



Sandi and De came with me so on the way back to Warwick we popped in for a little light refreshment at the " Christmas Farm "...... of course.....

OMG it was soooo yummie....










We always have a burger night from our favourite takeaway shop.....
Charchy's in Warwick.....


"Wild Grounds Cafe "
is a great cafe to visit.....

What a great retreat this one was......
we really enjoyed having Chooky and Julie with us....
hopefully we get to do that again.....
