Fun was had by All
My friend Linda and I returned home from a wonderful weekend away yesterday evening.
Thursday we went to my DD2’s. After spending time with the kids and a delicious meal DD2 made this for me.
An Artists hat. A must have for my costume as we were asked to wear something beginning with “A” to dinner Saturday night at the retreat. Linda was also so busy making her costume. Can you guess what she went as ??
Friday morning we made our way to Toodyay.We called into many shops first. Had coffee and cake and then drove to our retreat.
A beautiful Homestead set in the hills surrounded by lovely gardens full of birds.
It was just so warm and cosy inside, many sat by the fire and enjoyed chatting.
Some even cut out and stitched.
Linda and Jan.
Helen’s quilt is coming together beautifully. Hope she got it finished.
I did manage to start my “Catnip”.
stitch a few Hexies
Also cut a a secret project to take along on our holiday
The girls all looked great in their “A” costumes on Saturday night.
