Warwick Part 3 (last one I promise!)

Last post about our retreat to Warwick... I promise!
Maree gave us all a wonderful Christmas in July dinner while we were there. She is so good to us... and with all the trimmings as well (oh! those spuds!!)  Linda brought along our dessert of sticky date pudding and caramel sauce... she is fast becoming famous for this (well her hubby is!) as it so delicious! 
Sandi, Helen and I had a little Christmas gift for everyone and didn't Sandi dress them up nice for us?
Inside was a little kit with wool felt and thread to make a Christmas decoration.
This is mine which I finished after the retreat. 
I also finished this stitchery while at Glenrose. It is for a bag by Natalie Bird which a few of us are making. 
I have my fabrics all picked out for it....thanks to a few purchases at the shop...
In the colours I love... black, white and red.
I also finished off this months blocks for Gossip in the Garden. I am loving the dresdens... even if they took forever to make!
We tried to get a group photo of all of us and the sun wasn't being too kind...
I like this photo much better....What a great group of ladies.
Sandi, me and Helen
My cabin buddies left on the Thursday for home, but I was having way too much fun and decided to stay one more day with the rest of the girls. So it was "goodbye:" to Helen and Sandi and off to make a quick check of our cabin (and my bed) as I was so sure they would do "something:" to the room now that I had it to myself. I was so sure they would short-sheet my bed.... 
When I pulled back the covers this is what I found.... Well Sandi did promise me I wouldn't be alone... and I thought she was trying to scare me! Never, ever a dull moment with these girls.
 
Just a few photos of our beautiful surroundings at Glenrose....
 
Then a wonderful trip home with the lovely De and Marilyn... with one more stop at Brysons before we head off...Can't help ourselves.
De, Alison and Marilyn
Thank you girls for another amazing, wonderful retreat. I loved every moment, every conversation, every laugh and every stitch with you all. This has been so much fun.
