FNSI Update & More Mill Rosie pictures.....

 This is what I worked on Friday night,I finally decided to make it into a cushion.I love how it's turned out :)
 Shez and I always do a one on one swap at each Mill Rosie get together and this is what I made for her this time a Natalie Lymer stitchery made into a wall canvas,I think by the look on Shez's face she liked it :) Our next swap is going to be by designer Anni Downs.
 This is what Shez made me in our swap,gorgeous isn't it :) I love lady birds and then to have it teamed with red.white and aqua just made my day! Thanks for swapping with me Shez,I can't wait to see what we come up with for our June meet up :)
 I also got to meet up with Cheryl my swap partner from last years Santa Sack swap,was totally surprised as a few of the other girls knew she was coming but kept it secret from me.Cheryl and I have been talking about doing a one on one swap as well since Christmas and this was the perfect opportunity to organise it.I love these personal swaps with very special friends :)
 This is Tracee and the Lucky dip item I made for our swap this month.I think she looks happy to have plucked it out of the bag :)
 Here's a close up of the cushion,I almost kept it for myself lol......
 This is the quiet table from L to R....Melody,Christine & Cheryl......I was sitting near Cheryl taking these pic's
 More of the quiet table L to R Sharon,Shez & Rosalie....
 and this is what I had for lunch on the day,was truely a funny sight when all the cameras started coming out to take pic's of all the diferent lunches lol.....
 Sharon spoilt me with a lovely bag of goodies,the choccies are long gone,they were eaten on the way back home lol and my baushka doll is now sitting on a shelf in my sewing room.Thanks Sharon I loved it all!
 Christine also surprised me with a name badge for me and all the founding members of the Mill Rosie girls.....isn't it gorgeous! Thanks Christine,I've never been a founding member before and quite honoured to be one of such a fabulous group of ladies :)
Shez also gave me a bag full of goodies,a zuchinni & home made pickles which I'll show a pic of after the 8th of March when I'm allowed to open them up lol, Mmmmm biscuits with cheese,ham and home made pickles what could be more perfect :) Thanks Shez..not long to wait now.
Here is a final picture of all the Rosalie Quinlan swap items all together,not one was a double up truely amazing......I can't wait for June to arrive so I can get together again with such an amazing bunch of ladies :)
