a day of happy!

Sunday was the Mill rose friends get together and what a get together it was.
some new friends and renewed acquaintances made for a great day.
quoting that song from Dirty Dancing 'I had the time of my life...'
Now we didn't have Patrick Swayze there because that's just impossible but we did have the amazing Cheryl from Gone Stitching.
Too much laughing, too much frivolity and chatting and did I mention the eating part... it's better than taking drugs or therapy.
And just when we thought that we had enough of the chatting and laughing the trip home was just as hilarious. Reminder to Robyn- you forgot to leave your Floral Beauty in the car for me to take home I can only imagine it was an oversight, I will have to get it next time Ok ?
Thanks to all of the wonderful girls that made the day so fantastic at the Mill Rose gathering and for Melody for making an idea become this great outing.
Now where are the pics you say...
Thanks to Liz that has kindly allowed her photos to be used by us all.
 Here we have the lovely demure crafters that we all are....

 Now here we are just being silly, don't you love being silly.
Who says that middle aged women can't jump?
Next time we need a little more effort from some of the girls, you know who you are....
I only got a few other pics I think I was too busy doing some crafting most of the time to get distracted by taking photos. I am so dedicated I amaze myself sometimes.
I did get a few pics of some special guests that tagged along with Chez, they are the well travelled Peg and Dale.
Here they are entertaining the ladies on the quiet table with some witty lady like banter.

 and here they are just keeping the noisy table in check. They high tailed it back to the peaceful serenity of the other table quick smart.

Now there was a terrible mention of the girls making it to the rotisserie over the cosy open fire. I don't know where that came from.... How uncharitable.
Luckily lunch came quickly so there wasn't an issue there.
Can't wait to catch up with you all at the next meet!

cheers for now
Marina....

It was a very memorable day and counting the days til the next one.
Peg and Dale were lucky to get away unsinged and uneaten. They may be too scared to return!
Thanks for delivering us there and back safe and sound.

Great post Marina! Yes, good thing that Peg & Dale didn't go warm themselves in the open fire, think of the smell of burning feathers!
