Yesterday I headed off to Mill Rose patchwork shop for the Mill Rose bloggers meet. I had some travelling companions keeping me company.
It was an absolutely amazing shop, so beautiful it took my breath away walking around it for the first time. There were so many gorgeous fabrics and magnificent quilts hanging around the shop. The staff were lovely and so helpful.They set the place up beautifully.
Lunch was delicious next door at the restaurant.
Lots of laughing and chatting as you would expect lol.
Here we are all returning from lunch..
I only got a little stitching done, we had a super Anni Downs swap for those that wanted to take part. I forgot to take a pic of the package that I wrapped up but this is what was in the package...
a pin cushion,
A finished zipper purse, I can't believe I didn't take a photo of it finished! I will have to check if Barb posts a pic of her goodies...
I also included two fat eights of Anni Downs fabric.
I received this beautiful hanging made by Melody, it's gorgeous!
Here is Melody's pic of my gorgeous gift.
Now did I buy anything?
Well next meeting the swap theme is Rosalie Quinlan. As I was walking around the shop I found some very pretty Rosalie Quinlan fabrics. Throw in a few extras to co ordinate and voila!! I have some inspiration to work with before February, Nothing like thinking ahead, I say. Now these are not my usual colours but I am keen to make something from them
(the green fabric on the bottom is for another project in case you are thinking 'where does she get her co ordinating abilities from?')
It was a fantastic day and I was a very tired little vegemite but I can't wait till the next meet in February!
thankyou girls for a super day!
Just had to share some flower pics too.
My lovely sister in law and her hub came over for lunch today and she brought me a huge bunch of roses from her garden. They have a wonderful garden full of roses and other flowering loveliness.
Hope you have had a lovely weekend making happy memories.
Now I need to get some motivation and finish some quilting!
