Mill Rose Girls.....

 Finally I can get back to blogging! I've had to change my email addy booo hooo so don't worry if you get directed to stitching barb's email addy  with your comment instead of my normal cupcake one :(
Now onto more pleasent things like my girl's day out at Mill Rose in Ballan....I met these lovely  girls,from right to left me,Christine and Melody (hiding behind Christine) Shez and Sharon and it felt like I was catching up with long lost friends....we didn't stop talking the whole day!!
 We had show and tell on the day and I swooned over Sharon's Swoon quilt,makes me want to make a few cushions up just by using the blocks they are enormous! So yummy and colourful.
 Next she showed us this little number and I fell in love all over agin.....such pretty colours and her stitching is sooooo neat!
 Then Christine showed us what she's been working on......I've always wanted to either make one of these or buy one as I love this design and she's done it all with 30's reprouction fabrics.I know my sister Anne will be enlarging this photo for a better look.....
 Shez also gifted each of us something she's made and mine was this little felt bird OH MY GOODNESS can it get any better than this! love,love,love my little birdie and I'm not waiting for Chrissy to hang him either,he now hangs in my sewing room so I can look at him every day.Thanks Shez :)
I also discovered this restored 1918 tredle singer sewing machine and I thought "SNAP" this is exactly like the one my mum gave me (her mum's) except in better condition LOL it's spurred me on to start looking for someone to restore the one I have sitting in my sewing room and actually start utilising it as a display centre.....
I'm hopeing now my email is back up and running under a new name I can get back to blogging and not wasting my time on twerps who think it's fun to muck around with peoples lives :(
P.S: I'll be back tomorrow with more pic's of our Ballan meet up and the bits and pieces I bought etc....
