And Life Returns To Normal...

A Photoshoot And An Invitation...

Oh WOW! What a day! Today was the first day of the photoshoot for Rosie's new book!!! One of the very special locations we always love to use is our beloved GlenHarrow Gardens in Belgrave:

How cute does Rosie's (champagne pink) car look full of prop flowers! (When little Georgie aged 7 saw this photo she wanted to know why Rosie had planted a garden in her car?!LOL!):

Of course I would LOVE to show you some of the great shots we got today but of course there has to be only the dreaded 'sneak peek':

Aug 3 Rosie Book2012

While there Rosie and I were so excited to see all the Spring blooms coming out and it was just building our excitement for the upcoming Annual Glenharrow Spring Stitch-In that we are busy planning for (oh ah, wait until you see the goodie bags, not to mention the menu). We had a tiny sampling of the menu today and you are in for a real treat if you happen to be coming along:

I know that some of you have booked cottages at GlenHarrow and so I just must show you how divine it is in the Winter sunlight:

So if you would like to join us for a day in Spring for a time of pure delight and girl talk, and some sewing of course, you can contact Nel on 03 9758 5879. We still have a few spots left and the dates are Thursday 10th September, Friday 11th September, Saturday 12th September, and Sunday 13th September. Here's a few of us last year (Lisa, Mette, Deb, Me, and Mary):

As Rosie and I always say, "This is a day of tradition and of women joining together to share in the pleasure of each others company, while creating things of beauty."

The cost of the day is $165 ($65 deposit when you book) and that includes morning and afternoon tea and a gourmet luncheon, a fully kitted project from both Rosie and me, a 'Stitcher's Giftbag' and a full day's escape to GlenHarrow Gardens where you can sit and stitch in the Atrium or meander through the gardens (but don't get lost, there's acres!).

Rosie and I would love to see you there!

Just caught up with your blog - I'm so glad Georgia is on the mend. I went thru that same scare when my son was a toddler who ended up with pneumonia, which was terrible enough!

Hey Leanne! Oooooohh!! Loooooove that brass/cast iron bed! I'm a sucker for the lovely old beds and had one restored last year that now holds pride of place in our guest bedroom. They just have that gorgeous 'yesteryear' feel to them, don't they. Wish your Glen Harrow was a little closer to home so I could enjoy a visit, but enjoy the 'virtual' visits you give us through your photos! THANK! Bear Hugs! KRIS

Hi Leanne, thanks for the little look, I will be joining you and Rosie at Glenharrow and I am so excited. I am 17hours away but I am thinking of the great day we will have, my poor husband will have to fill in the day on his own he doesn't seem to mind. See you soon!! luv Tash


Thanks for the sneak peeks Leanne! I love that house fabric of Rosie's. Would love to come to Glenharrow to hang out with you and Rosie, but it's just a little too far for me. Hope you have a wonderful time!
