I'm a bit late with my post about our wonderful day at Mill Rose Cottage with the Mill Rosie Friends but here it is! It was such a wonderful day catching up with everyone.
Our designer swap this time around was Rosalie Quinlan. Everyone had outdone themselves again. There weren't any duplicates!
I was lucky enough to get Sharon's swap gift. A bouquet of flowers made with fabric designed by Rosalie. They are so much nicer in person. The flowers are sitting in a lovely vase (which I've just realised you can't see). Sharon also added a box of Roses chocolates to go with it.
I made this door hanger which has dried lavender in it. It smells lovely! Barb was the recipient of my gift.
I think we all managed to get a little stitching in amongst the chatting! We had a wonderful Show and Tell.
Mel's sewing room hanging.
Sharon's beautiful Vignette quilt.
Barb with her crocheted blanket.
Rosalie hiding behind her Sewing Room hanging.
This is also Rosalie's. I just love the old kitchen stove block (as well as all the other blocks).
Shez was starting to get hungry and couldn't wait for the waitress to bring her lunch. Here she is eating an agapanthus flower!
Aaahh! Shez is so happy now lunch is on it's way that she's singing! Or perhaps it has something to do with that glass of wine! LOL!
The obligatory photo of Shez taking a photo of me
taking a photo of her!
Sharon gave me a little bag filled with these lovely goodies.
I had admired Barb's tin like this last time and Barb got one for me. It's great as it has a hinged lid.
Shez gave me a jar of lovely homemade cucumber relish. There was also some home-grown zucchini and cucumbers. I've just made a yummy zucchini slice for tonight's tea. It will taste so much nicer being home-grown! Thank you, Sharon, Barb and Shez for my lovely gifts.
These are name brooches that I made for the five of us original Mill Rosie Friends.
Thanks everyone for such a wonderful day of fun and friendship. I can't wait for the next one! If you head over to some of the other girls' blogs you'll see some more photos.
