Warwick Retreat

After a lovely road trip through Boonah with Sandi, we are on retreat again, staying at the wonderful Glenrose Patchwork in Warwick.   
Our beautiful morning tea was waiting for us. We are off to a great start. 
As Helen couldn't make this trip, Maree made sure she was still "here" in spirit. Boy we had fun with Helen today!!! 
I was very productive and got straight into the sewing. Two Farm Girl  Vintage blocks so far .... Egg Basket block
.......and Farm Fresh Flower block.
I also loved drafting this apron from a vintage 1929 pattern. The fabric is gorgeous and it was fun to work out. 
De and Maree with their mini quilt swaps they received (a little early due to Maree leaving for overseas next week). De's was made by Maree and Maree's is made by Helen. They are stunning! 
A few finishes.... From Lynda...Natalie Bird's little zipper bags. 
Marilyn ....crochet hook holder and zipper sew it all bag. 
And De's sweet quilt (another Natalie Bird pattern) 
Having a wonderful time as always. Love this place, love the company especially. 
Night Helen! 
Teresa xx
