Retreat at St Francis

A small group from club had a great weekend at Saint Francis Retreat Centre in Auckland.
A lot of sewing, laughing, and eating (without having to cook!) was done. Here's a few photos from the weekend.

Donna stopped sewing long enough for this photo to be taken. She is making an Orca Bay Quilt.

Fiona & Me
It was really nice not having to cook all weekend. A bell was rung at mealtimes and all we had to do was walk to the dinning room and eat. And it was really nice food too.

I think this is Dinner on Saturday Night. It was so great to not have to cook . 
The dessert was to die for but  we couldn't get the recipe out of the Cook :-(

Lunch on Sunday (Jane's being Mum) the scones were really good.

Sandy completed the sewing of her 'Star' and was auditioning this black/grey fabric for the background.

And Fiona made lots of blocks to go with her 'horses' for a lap quilt.

We all want to go again, so are thinking about the end of November. So if you missed out this time, join us then.
