Warwick Part 3

Wednesday .... We decided to try another cafe/gift store in town. We visited  Warwick Gardens Galore and we were all impressed with the meals we chose. The food was incredible and we will definitely be adding this place to our "must visit" list when we come here again. 
My lunch was so good I thought I'd better try the dessert as well. 
It seems the gift shop was pretty good too! Noela, De, Jenny and Sandi looking very happy with their purchases. 
Norreen spoilt us all with a gift from the shop. This lovely wind chime was for me.
Back to the workroom and more sewing. I made this Retro Rose Bag which I actually bought as a kit the last time I was in Warwick. It has a large ric rac bow on the front and a gorgeous red spot interior. 
I just fell in love with the fabric. 
I also found a lovely spot to photograph my Tilda hexie quilt. 
Sandi finished her two zippered bags. 
Jenny and Helen finished their dolls. 
They are adorable! 
And have the sweetest faces. 
I just love them. 
I've finished another "Postcards" block. 
Susan's progress with her Quilty Christmas quilt. 
De has put all her "T's" together and her quilt is gorgeous (and huge!!) 
We polished off dinner (more leftovers!) and some french wine before hitting the sewing machines again. 
De is working on her Quilt Diva (love this!) 
And I've finished a Christmas UFO I've had for ages. The stitchery is now a red chenille cushion.
On our last morning we had our usual group photo at Glenrose. I've had so much fun with these girls over the last few days. It's been wonderful!!! 
Susan was my lovely cabin buddy and that worked very well. We both like to stay up late and sew and no extreme early mornings for us. I loved your company Susan!!! 
We couldn't leave without one more trip into town and Bryson's. 
And another quilt shop. Sandi was getting comfortable checking out their fabrics. 
 Could we possibly be buying just one more thing??? 
 Thank you girls for making this another wonderful retreat. I've loved every minute (yeah even the fat quarter fiasco!!!)
I don't know what I'd do without your company, the laughs, the friendships and the sheer exhaustion!!!! Miss you already!!
Until the next one.....

looks like a very productive retreat for all of you. Love those dolls Jenny and Helen made. Looks like they have got over their drinking issues (the dolls not the girls)
