Warwick Retreat Part 2

 Firstly, I have to warn you.....You may want to get yourself a cuppa.... there's a lot of photos in this post!
Second day of our retreat found us at Brysons! Our favourite shop in town for browsing, shopping, coffee and caking and lots of oohing and ahhing!!! Such a gorgeous shop full of beautiful things.
Warwick is such a lovely place to visit and we did a bit of the tourist thing as well as shopping.
As you can see it was a gorgeous day.
I bought some gorgeous French General fabrics and these wonderful Christmas fabrics from a great Quilting shop, Canning Town, in Warwick as well. Then it was back to Glenrose and some serious stitching, creating and sewing. The girls were very industrious.... 
Here's some of what we achieved over the week.....
Helen and her jelly roll quilt.
 
Cheryl and her absolutely gorgeous mini quilt...
 
Maree's stunning Auntie Green's Garden...
 
These gorgeous blocks were made by Marilyn....
A lot of work in Lynda's Social Tote.
I think Maree was very happy to get this bag finished!
De and her fresh and bright quilt for her daughter...
Alison and her sweet table cloth...
Sandi and her Sew Together Bag... she wasn't the only one to make one of these....
Weren't we a productive bunch?
 I finished this great little quilters compendium which was our project from Let's Get Stitched in Melbourne by Marilyn. I love it!!!
 
Inside there are pockets for cards, notes, receipts and a pen, a see through pocket for fabric pieces and a notebook. This is going to be sooooo handy!
We had a little visitor.... isn't he cute?
 
These are our lovely gifts from Glenrose Cottage... moscato, nibblies and gorgeous fabric for each of us. We certainly are spoilt here.
Sorry about the long post... and all the photos ... but this is definitely a time and place I want to remember forever. I have a few more photos of our Christmas in July dinner and another finish to go....
Hope you're having a lovely week.

You clever girls with all those finishes. After seeing Cheryl's lovely mini I am happy to write her a note for when she isn't up to date with her gossip in the garden blocks it's amazing.
so many lovely projects well done to all of you!
