after travelling 1700 kms over the past few days. ( to the retreat and then to DD2's surprise 40th.) I am pleased to be home. Even though an unwanted bug has come along as well.
My friend Linda and I left last Friday to go to our annual Patch retreat at Toodyay. On the way we stopped in Midland to have lunch with my DDs and do some shopping.
Arrived at about 3 o’clock to see many of the ladies already busy setting up their machines. We unloaded the car and got started too.
after dinner some of us watched Tele and did a bit of knitting. Lovely and cosy sitting by the fire.
Woke to a very foggy cold morning but it was warm inside. After a nice breakfast it was back to the sewing room.
I was working on a Bright Jelly Roll Top.
and Mary is busy hand sewing.
later Linda and I went for a drive around town
we found some fun things to see and places to go before our return.
Saturday night dinner theme was “Flowers” and we had a surprise for two of our girls who had birthdays.
Marie (behind the balloons) had a normal birthday but it was Linda’s 50th.
After dinner we played a Trading Game . There was lots of laughter coming from each table…
Will post part two tomorrow……
