Mill Rosie Friends Get Together and Block 3 Finished!

 
We had another wonderful day at Mill Rose Cottage. 
It was lovely to catch up with everyone and 
to meet some new friends.

The theme for our swap this time was "Red". 
  
Once again there were so many gorgeous gifts made.
 
I came home with this lovely cushion made by Marg. 
Thank you Marg. I'm going to put it on our bed. It would be lovely sitting in my spot on the couch but I couldn't trust that naughty Molly not to chew it up!
 
My swap gift was the table runner I made with Sherri's Simply Small Sewing. O'faigh was the recipient of it.

I was also able to give Cheryl her prize from my Grow Your Blog Party giveaway. It was so nice to be able to
give Cheryl her prize in person.
 
I did manage to get a little stitching in
and finished my block 3.
 
Yes, it's not much stitching but probably more than I normally get done with the Mill Rosie Girls!

Christine I am amazed that even one cross was stitched! I love the colours you are using for your sampler, & glad to see you so enjoyed the get-together! x

your quilty stitches blocks are great. I'm working on the 2nd one, but haven't stitched it quite the same - I haven't left the white border round each star if you see what I mean. I'm worried mine looks strange now!
