It's Come And Gone!

Our Mill Rosie Friends get together, that is!
It was another wonderful day. 
A little quieter than normal as some of the girls weren't there (but they were in spirit).
Another wonderful selection of gifts. 
This swap's theme was 3 sewing items.
The gifts are drawn out of a hat and everyone ended up with a swap package that suited them. It was just as if the gifts had been made for particular recipients.
I was lucky enough to receive the gifts Barb had made. 
Just look at all that beautiful stitching!
A pin cushion and matching needlecase. 
They matched perfectly with my dress!
Barb also added a cute red robin tin with some DMC threads inside. The colours really look nothing like this. They are so much prettier. Needles, pins, a latte sachet and yummy chocolates. They were all wrapped up in some pretty fabric that Barb had lined the pouch. Thank you so much, Barb. I just love my swap gifts.
Can you believe I got all this stitching done? No!
 
Well, due to all the talking happening, this is what I 
actually got done. I did manage to stitch two words. I think 
that was pretty good (more than last time). 
I stitched the rest Saturday night.

I'll show you what I made tomorrow.
