My Weekend at The Retreat.

Last weekend Abbe invited me to the opening of her Retreat in Woodend.  
She is having a giveaway to celebrate.
I had a lovely weekend with some old bloggy friends and also met a few new ones.  It was so relaxing and I did more craft work than I think I've accomplished all year.

The Retreat is everything and more than Abbe ever described.
I thought it was a typo when she emailed there were two double beds in each of the five bedrooms.  Yes people, there are ten double beds.  The house is deceptive from the outside, its so much bigger once you get inside.  The blue room is upstairs, so pretty, very storybook cottage with the sloping roof and cute windows.

The kitchen is superb.  Abbe has thought of everything here too.  Lots of appliances and plenty of crockery, glasses, cutlery etc.  We were too tired to cook Friday night so popped down to town to get chinese and then on Saturday night we had a big roast.

Most importantly heres the craft space.  Aren't I nice, not getting anyone in the photo.  Lots of working space and there is no need to pack up as there are two additional sitting rooms with comfy couches etc.

Don't forget Abbe is giving away a free weekend valued at $950.
Check her blog for details.
