Sit and Stitch / Blogger Meet

Yesterday a wonderful group of ladies all go together
and enjoyed the second gathering of the
"Mill Rosie Friends"
at Mill Rose Cottage and Gallery in Ballan.
We had an optional designer swap with the designer being Annie Downs.
I am sorry that I don't have pictures of all the swap items but here are just a few.
It was a blind swap where you were given a number, bit like a lucky dip
and everyone was very, very lucky. :o)

Christine was very lucky to receive Anni's new bag
 from her book "Simple Things"

Shez got one of Anni's Pincushions in a hoop.
Fantastic idea to hang it on a wall. I know I would
have never been able to put pins in it so the hoop
is a fantastic idea.

I was super spoilt and got Anni's "Naught or Nice" Wall hanging
Thank you Shez, it already has pride of place on our Lounge Room Wall.

Melody got the "Project Keeper" made by Me :o)
I also received a Christmas Treat from Barb, thank you Barb 

and a beautiful broach from Christine, thank you Christine

and here is my new Wall hanging up on the wall :o)
The kids are currently on the Naughty side.
Well, until they realize and then I am sure they will change it around!
Now what is a great day out in such an inspiring shop without a little
retail therapy :)

These fabrics are going to become my new bag,
"The Stella Bag"  Linda has one made from the same fabric and
I have admired it so now I'm going to make it!
Thank you Linda for the inspiration and finding the bolt of fabric :o) 
OK, I do have more photos to share.
Show and tell etc. but I will save them for another day.
Thank you Ladies again for a lovely day out.
Hugs, Sharon
