Glenrose Cottage Retreat

 Well what a lovely peaceful place to go on retreat.  The  house is an old home renovated beautifully and  full of patchwork and quilted treasures. The shop is next door and it's a well stocked quilt shop with lots of beautiful things made to inspire you. The gardens are  show quality with lots to see.  If your not happy here I don't think you could be happy anywhere. The entrance welcomes you with a row of  barn quilts on the fence . I have not seen may of these in my travels here in Australia. We did have to provide our own food at this retreat but we were welcomed with a big bowl of fruit and tea coffee etc were provided.  We ordered the evening meal in and took some food for breakfast and lunch. I finished my Christmas attic window quilt I showed last post and also finished a quilt top for a friend who is a Vietnam veteran.  I will post a picture of the finished quilt when I hang it up next week.

I’ve often heard the girls talk of your retreats there. Thanks for showing some photos of the lovely place. Your quilts turned out beautifully.

This is a lovely venue for a retreat! I don't think I would get much sewing done, I'd just walk around enjoying the place.
