Mt Alford Retreat 2011

 I recently had the pleasure of travelling to Queensland for a retreat/get together with some lovely ladies from an on line group from CRAFT. What a great time it was and we all got on so well as if we had known each other for many years. This is a picture of course of Mt Alford which surprisingly no one climbed.
This was the cabin i shared with Anita and Lynda
Our kichenette and dining area.
Lovely and comfortable lounge

Busy at work
Games to play
 Our group of glorious ladies
   You can see we did do some sewing, all beautiful creations
    Shopping time...yippee
   Relaxing time in our hotel on the Thursday night at Ipswich, our last night together
    More of the ladies having an idle chit chat
 At the retreat we played a lot of fun games and did some swaps, this is my loot, a lovely collection
This is what i bought whille i was away, lots of goodies, now to find the time to make some things.
My table topper i made at retreat, i also made a jelly roll quilt which is off being quilted at the moment

Out of here

Well time to put this blog to rest for a week so will see you then with some photos of fun times.

Retreat Time

     Off to retreat early tomorrow morning, i mean very, very early so will have to have a n afternoon Nana nap i think. It should be a lot of fun to put names to faces that i only know from on line, except Anita that is. I have made these few things to add to the other bits and bobs i have for our secret sister swap.Off now to pack.


I have been on a bit of a cooking spree whilst i have been on holidays.
I made these Cheese and Bacon Muffins plus i added some onions
 I had my lovely friend Amy and her daughter Chloe come for lunch last week and made some of these which were very easy and apparently very tasty but of course not for me being a vegetarian.
