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

Glad you had such great fun and got to meet some of the girls!!
You bought some lovely items too!
Sorry you are sick again. Maybe you have an immunity problem. My friend has really low immunity and needs gamma gobulin treatments and she still gets sick a lot.
Just happy you got that time off of work for the retreat as you sure needed it!
hugs Karen

Looks like you had a great time in Queensland at the retreat Lois. I am happy for you. You even made something. That says you still found time to work and not all chat all the time.
What a great opportunity.
