To the Tea House we go

A group from my fabulous quilting guild, NOTYQ enjoyed a stitchery day at the Patchwork Tea House in Warburton yesterday. Of course I had a great time.  Delightful company, a relaxing day of stitching and lots and lots of yummy treats to eat.  Here's a picture of the whole happy group, looking very industrious.
I don't know what I did to my camera but this is the spooky image I got.  In reality it was not dark, as you can see in the photo below.
These stitchery days are wonderful and great value.  You get to choose a project to stitch, which Marilyn prepares for you, a lovely devonshire tea in the morning, lunch and delicious cake for afternoon tea.  All for $40.
I didn't actually do a huge amount of stitching, as I was having a lot of fun chatting, eating and looking at all the wonderful fabric and treasures for sale in the gorgeous shop.  I did buy a couple of lovely gifts but I can't show you here, just in case they are for you.
Here's what I stitched
I like it so much I plan to keep working on it this afternoon.  Finally here's a view of the river from the teahouse car park.
Lovely to see the river flowing so beautifully.  After our ten years of drought I am so grateful for all the beautiful water we have again.

FABULOUS FREE STUFF
I popped over to Red Brolly and look at the project Bronwyn is sharing today.
Isn't it gorgeous.  Bronwyn is always so generous with what she shares.  Many thanks.
