Mill Rosie December gathering

I had a great day at Mill Rosie catch up yesterday - lots of laughter and chatting....not a lot of sewing!! This is the swap I made

We were to make something by Bronwyn Hayes for the swap, I chose this stitchery and then made it into a wall hanging. We had a Bad Santa swap, you can see what happens here, but everyone loved their parcels they opened and very few wanted to swap, you can see some photos at Sharon's blog here.

Earlier in the year we got to take home orphan blocks from Mill Rose and the instruction was to make them into something...I had intended to put the two chooks together but it didn't turn out that way, so Tania taught me foundation piecing and the chooky block above became a table runner and the chook below a tea cosie!

Here are a few photos of the Mill Rosie catch up...lots will be on other blogs...
the swap I got from the lovely Annie

Anne with the swap made by Marg..she does beautiful stiitchery!

Bad Santa is plotting over one wants to swap!!! Marina said NO!!! NO!!! No way!! but then Marg swapped and then Annie swapped with Marg and I heard today that Annie swapped with Marina on the way home because she saw how much Marina liked the wall hanging! What a lovely lady!!! Rosalie had her apron firmly tied to her body!!!! No swapping there! Lol!!

Marg with her goodies before swapping!

"No, No" says Marina!! Lol!!

And here was the pile of beautiful swap items, this is such a clever group of people! Thank you Barb for taking the photo from on the chair!!

It was a wonderful day, I had a great time....roll on February when the next day comes around!!
Happy sewing!
