Millrose Christmas Gathering

Another day spent with such a lovely group of ladies in the perfect location :o)

Millrose Cottage in Ballan.

Our Swap theme this time around was Red Brolly.
So many beautiful swap gifts were made.  This swap is always on the highest quality.
Everyone goes to so much effort.  Just have a look.

This time around the swap was done as a "Bad Santa" swap. Overseen by Shez.
(guidelines are here if your interested)

 Here are some moments that I caught on camera :)

 It was all way to funny to watch and you just didn't know what gift you were going home with.
I started off with this lovely cushion made by Ann (below) but in the spirit of the day I decided to "swap" Christine's gift.  :o)

but then Shez took that from me and I ended with this beautiful sewing case and heart.
Christine was the first to open her gift so she got to, should she wish to, "swap" any gift at the very end,
 and she did. She raided Shez's gift which just happened to be her (Christine's) original gift.
All fun and full of laughs.

I was also spoiled and received some lovely Christmas gifts from the others within the "Founding 5" of the Millrose Bloggers Meet.

Thank you ladies, I love all my gifts.

Such a fun filled day.
Thank you everyone for making it so.
