MillRosie get together!

 What started out as five members last September sudeenly swelled to sixteen by our November meet up!
 Here are a few photo's I've pinched from Melody's blog as I didn't get my camera out quick enough to get many shots......Lots of fun, chatting, laughing and stitching happened on Saturday!
 We also had a lucky dip and eleven girls particpated with this months designer being a small item made from an Anni Downs pattern. This is what I made for the dip, I'm planning on making myself one as well but in as a redwork stitchery.
 These are the gorgeous handmade items I got in the lucky dip, made by the very talented Marina,Marina also included a gorgeous crocheted flower and fat 1/8th's in my parcel Mmm........does this mean now that I have a zippered pouch I don't need to attempt to make one myself???
I also made up a little something for Shez, Sharon, Christine and Melody, handmade Rum Truffles with a Christmas ornament made from a design by Michelle Ridgway, a very talented designer.
I still have more photo's of our lovely bloggy meet so will post again in another day or two with more of what we got up to :)

We shared a very enjoyable day and I look forward to another one. I think that you will have to make a zipper bag, a girl needs more than one.
Your little gifts to the girls were beautifully made.

It was great catching up with you again Barb. Thank you so much for my lovely Christmas tin and ornament. Haven't touched the rum balls yet. Better save them for when I don't have to drive. Don't want to be picked up being over .05!

Such gorgeous lucky dip pressies Barb. And I have been admiring your ornie/rum ball pressies on other blogs, they are so sweet :)

marina said...

so glad you liked the gifties, I suppose it just means you won't have to make a zippered purse urgently!
Loved your citrus crochet blanket, it was lovely. Was lovely to meet you.
