Preparing for our retreat at Glenrose Cottage Warwick

This weekend coming I am going on retreat to Warwick (about 200km away) to a place called Rose Cottage.  I have cut out this quilt, an attic window with a Christmas panel from Canning Town Patchwork  I have had a rough out with the fabric, at first I had white on the window sill but it was far too bright so I decided on this . You cant really see it but its a pale brown yellow colour. I also wanted to use what was in my stash and I did.  So we'll see if I can get it sewn and quilted this weekend.

It's absolutely pouring rain here right now and its supposed to rain all week so we may not even get there if this keeps up. I hope that is not the case. I feel bad for our farmers trying to get  their first decent harvest in years due to drought, now this. 

'm sorry about the photos,they are really not as true to colour as they should be, I will have to work on that. What ever you are doing take care and have fun...I really miss seeing all my southern friends. We can only pray this co-vid situation will be contained enough one day to let us travel again.

I'm also working on this folder from fabric I received in  a fat quarter challenge.

That panel will look great when you are done - and I love the folder...(must be the colours)

I'm off to Warwick too - we get there Monday 15th - just after you have left I guess.
I too hope it's not too soggy there!
Have fun - it's so pretty there - and the shop is soooo tempting!
