Retreat Chapter 2

On arrival at Glenrose Patchwork B&B we were greeted so cheerfully and a delicious Devonshire Tea awaited us...oh such pretty teacups! It was hard to chose.
the scones went down a treat!
After settling in Sandi (organiser extraordinaire) gave us the sweetest "blue" gift. It was presented so beautifully none of us wanted to unwrap it...
But we forced Isn't it pretty. Please note my Oreo's are still intact.
The first evening everyone bought something delicious to share and our first meal was something to see and taste...So much laughter and friendship....lovely!
We had a visit into Warwick to a cafe and gift shop called Bryson's a favourite of the girls and a very nice lunch was had. We enjoyed it so much we had to go again. This time however we had a very special visitor with us, Fiona from Bubzrugz who came to spend the day with us...Yours truly and Fiona.
The rest of the girls...
Sandi and Teresa.
Tatyana and Noreen
Jen No1 and Miss Helen.
Yours truly and Jen No.2
Noreen Tess and Jen
As you can see we spoilt ourselves with lovely treats.
Fiona left us with a lovely bundle of gifties to play "Naughty Santa" after dinner that evening. Tess gets the game under way while Helen supervises.
It was so much fun and much thieving, hilarity and keeping your gift close to your chest took place.
Jen and Teresa remained friends even after some extreme stealing.
My gift was a lovely needlecase that I was thrilled with.
We did actually do some stitching which I will show next chapter.
