Meeting new Friends

I had a fantastic Saturday meeting some Bloggie Friends in the flesh
at this wonderful Red Door!

I had a wonderful time with these lovely ladies.

From Left to right
All with our "Retail Therapy" in hand.

With the thanks to Melody we all met at Mill Rose at 11am.
Spend some time discovering the shop

"Fabric Heaven"

before heading next door to the Cafe for some lovely lunch and constant chatting.
Ladies, I feel like have have known you all for years and to think this was the first time
we have all been together :o)

Then back to Mill Rose for the "Retail Therapy"

Next time (more on that soon) I will be better prepared in the finance department but
here are my buys from this trip.

4 Orange FQ's as my stash is seriously lacking in this department.
Some pink fabric for a little "secret" project I am working on.
The Grey is for my Christmas Quilt I am getting ready to start.
The Black and white - I think will be for the Bag Swap I am in 
but will make a firm decision on that once I get my secret partner
and the bottom one, well it is really a "just because" purchase. I love it. I see a bag
but we will just have to wait and see on that one :o)

The wonderful Shez had a little gift for all of us.
How spoilt am I. 
I am now the proud owner of a new needle case.
Annie Downs design.
Thank you Shez.

It will be coming with me next weekend to Daylesford.

After our shopping was complete we went back to the cafe and enjoyed our
afternoon tea, more chatting and laughs before it was time to head home. 
Wow how fast the afternoon went.

I will be back next post to share with you some of the girls Show and Tell
and more.

Have a great day enjoying something you love.

Thank you ladies for a fabulous day.


  1. Oh that red door says it all. I am dying to visit Millrose. It really sounds like you had a perfect day - all those shelves of fabric look divine.

  2. The pleasure was all mine meeting you wonderful ladies and it was like we were old school friends.
    It was just the best day and loved show and tell,your quilts were gorgeous and inspiring,till next time my friend.xx

  3. Don't you just love RED DOORS....always think something naughty could be going on behind red doors,(keep your minds clean,I don't mean in a rude way)haha.
    It looks like you all had a great time,spent with great people.
    This time next year I hope to be in Australia,you can invite me to join you.....
    Enjoy your purchases.
    Laura xx

  4. Thank you so much for helping to make today so wonderful. I can't wait for our next get together.

  5. Sounds like you all had a wonderful time and I just love that little needle case Shez made for you!!

  6. fantastic! What an amazing fabric collection in the shop, I would be in heaven too! You are making me miss Victoria!

  7. It sounds like a wonderful day, like you all had an amazing time. Is it ok that I'm a little green sitting here?

  8. I had such a lovely day meeting you all and can't wait for our next bloggy "Mill Rose Girls" bloggy meet up in November,it felt like we'd known each other forever.All the show & tell goodies were so inspiring! I didn't want the day to end!! :) Barb.

  9. I have never seen such long continuous rows of beautiful coloured fabric. What a feast for the eyes just looking at it. I guess it makes deciding which ones quite difficult....but someone has to do it!
    I also love that "Red Door," their hanging baskets need a boost however.

  10. I'm sorry I couldn't make it. I love that shop and the cafe and meeting other bloggers and buying fabric. Melody is a great little organiser.

  11. It was so lovely to meet you, along with Shez and Barb yesterday. Anyone listening in would have thought we'd all been friends for years. Little did they know we only met for the first time yesterday! Thanks for making it such a lovely day Sharon. I'm looking forward to our next get together.

  12. What fun.... I am always amazed when I meet bloggy friends that we just take off like we have known each other for ever... lovely retail therapy and such pretty needlecase from Shez...

  13. Glad you had a great day xx hugs. Fee x

  14. I think that black & white would be very good for the bag swap ; ) xx

  15. That "RED" door is gorgeous and it just looks like there would be gorgeous things behind it. So nice to finally see your lovely face Sharon. Meeting up with like minded souls is always wonderful....lovely needlecase too.

  16. always great to meet up with blog the needlecase..........
