Retreat at Glenrose Cottage,

I was lucky enough to be invited along to spend a few days sewing with these lovely ladies at Glenrose Cottage in Warwick. Thanks for asking me Tuesday girls, as I had a wonderful time.
This photo taken on th last day. Back row, Jenny, Teresa, Noreen, Middle row, me, Susan, Front row,  Helen, De and Sandi

Sandi, me and Susan at Cannington Patchwork. Our last stop before heading home. 
Thanks Teresa for allowing me to share a few of your photos.

But back to the beginning, we arrived on Monday in time for a quick look at the shop and a morning tea of freshly made scones with jam and cream before we unpacked the car and settled into our cottage which would be home for a few days.

I shared the cottage with De. It had all the comforts of home with quilts draped over boxes and chairs, I definitely slept well although De and I were guilty of talking till 2.30 am one morning and were pretty tired the next day. Thanks De for sharing with me and for the ride to and from.
It was great to have the shop on the grounds and I was a bit naughty with my purchases. This was the view from the cottage to the shop and our workshop area.

Here are my some of my purchases.......

Well I have a few more photos to show but will leave them for the next post.
Be back soon..........
