2015 Warwick Retreat......So Late ....

This post is so late that it's not funny. I've written it in my head and I really thought I had published it. I'm still going to do it as I want to keep on record  this year's retreat.

Same venue -Glenrose Patchwork B&Bs  at Warwick - why change perfection.
Same week - end of June/start of July.
Same people - well almost - One was unable to come, but we made sure she was there in spirit and didn't miss out.
Same lack of photos - the others do it so much better.

The photos will tell the story.

It's always my birthday on retreat. This year I enlisted DH's help to make a little present for everyone. Thread holders made from Silver Ash and Kewila.

 Here was our missing friend - Helen. We made sure she had her spot. Stick Helen came with us to lunch at the Warwick Garden Centre for my birthday. Here I am explaining the menu to her.

 I worked on a project that I had cut out on our first retreat 2 years previously.

Here it is minus the sashings which were put on before I left. It's 'Off Track' by Cluck Cluck Sew.

 De worked very hard to get this Natalie Bird wall hanging finished.

Sandy sped through Lori Holt's Farm Girl Vintage book. Fast worker that one!

 Teresa dug out a project to keep Stick Helen happy.

 Foxy ladies!

The girls even replenished the fruit bowl.


A lucky daughter is getting this Marilyn design.

Sorry Lynda, Alison and Maree. Your work for the week was also fabulous just not recorded properly by this slack photographer.
I didn't think I would be able to go next year as 2016 is a very significant birthday for me and I want to celebrate it with hubby and parents. But! It's a leap year so it moves the the end of the week. I might just be able to go still. Insert smiley face here.

Take care,
