Warwick Retreat

Before any more days pass and it becomes very old news, I must tell you about my very first retreat. Two weeks ago, I went with a fabulous group of ladies to Glenrose Patchwork in Warwick, about 2 hours drive away, depending on roadworks.
It was just the best!!!!
Glenis and Percy Pugliese have set up a wonderful home with a patchwork shop , 4 B&B cottages, gardens and a very well appointed retreat room. The photos below should tell you all.

 Here we are busy at work, fuelled by chocolate.



 Now let's just say we didn't starve! Don't listen to the others - almost all of this is ours! Maree made us a wonderful baked dinner. Thank you Maree. The kale is from Aunty Al's vegie garden.

Part of the gardens.

Who won the biggest and most filled bag?
 At the start of the retreat, in the shop, we were given a bag with our name on it. You know just to fill with the pretty things that caught our eye or that we needed to help with the project we were working on. Well that was lethal!
All being well we are going again next year. Can't wait.
Thank you Maree (who organised it), Helen, Teresa, Sandy, Marilyn, De, Alison and Lynda for you company and conversation.
Back soon with what I did,
Take care,
Kayly
PS. We even had a visitor. Chookyblue popped in on her way home.
