Mill Rosie Friends

Well last Saturday was blogging friends meet up day at the wonderful Mill Rose Quilt shop at Ballan. We had a day of laughter, chatting, eating and drinking, more chatting..not a lot of stitching, but it was wonderful to catch up with everyone and see what they were doing
the paparazzi were in attendance during the swap openings!! 

Marg with a beautiful bag she got in the swap

Barb's sister Ann with a beautiful box with a stitchery on the front and goodies inside

Mel with her swap items

Shez making a wish!! LoL!!

With her swap item a beautiful doll made by Marg

paparazzi moved to the other side of the table now!!

all the beautiful swap items - Michelle Ridgway inspired...

Marg's doll, some beautiful stitchery there!

We, the Gisborne Girls as we seem to have become known, decided to have a joke with Shez, she has a great sense of humour luckily and we presented her with a book on Mug Rugs (how to make) and we each made her a mug rug from the book. Now we know Shez is NOT a fan of mug rugs...but we had a really good laugh and Shez (after the initial shock) had a really good laugh. Now she has more items for her present box!!

Mug rugs on display!!
and this is some of the show and tell on the day

How is this?? Sharon's amazing quilt top!!

Barb's crochet rug


Tania's mini quilt

Lots of chatting down the table...
