What a wonderful weekend away. Six of us from Purple Paddo Patchers (PPP) Cottage Group travelled to Highfields, just north of Toowomba, for a weekend retreat. It was freezing on Friday night, so a fire was called for. Glenys & Hilary gathered kindling & using their vast Girl Guide knowledge, lit the fire.
Yep - it's alight!
Success - we were lovely & warm in the sewing room thanks to the girls.
Aina & Suzanne toasted their success - they also found the wine helped their sewing skills! Jen & I took our sewing more seriously than these two........
Desert - nothing was missed, candles with dinner & wine, of course.
Sunday - time to head home, but we just had to make a stop at Precious Time www.welcometoprecioustime.com.au in Toowoomba - the wisteria was beautiful and the extensive range of fabrics beckoned. We did help the economy of the district - just a little.
Lunch was at Forest Hill in the Lockyer Valley - about an hour west of Brisbane. This is the Lockyer Hotel in the main street. The Forest Hill Post Office www.foresthillgiftscafe.com.au is also a cafe & lovely gift shop. The food was just great and it was fitting way to end a wonderful weekend with special friends.
