An In-depth look at Mt Alford Quilt Retreat


This is the dining room wall and the sentiment is really inspiring.

Morning tea on Saturday, imagine the aroma of fresh coffee combined with the tasty hot nibbles and delectable chocolate slice, reality was even better.

P1040236 Saturday lunch was a pasta/mince combo, steamed tatties with sour cream and basil pesto accompanied by a delicious salad selection.

P1040246 Saturday dinner, BBQ steak and chipolata sausages and veggies done in a white sauce with stir-fried greens.

P1040248 Dessert was cream sponge with caramel sauce ad ice-cream.


As you can see a little stitching took place amongst all the fabulous food stops.

  P1040251  Morning tea on Sunday was another highlight.

The fireplace was lit late in the afternoon to keep the chill at bay.  Bev and Jodie are checking out the photo album that shows Mount Alford Lodge being created from a rundown property to the magnificent venue it is today. It is a credit to the owners.
