Finally managed to get a daylight photo of the gorgeous doll Shez made for me in our one on one swap which we exchange each Mill Rosie meet up......This months theme was anything by designer Anni Downs and as I love dolls and the colour red Shez added these to the list for my swap item!!! Woooo Hooo love, Love, LoVe it Shez!!
Shez also included a large box of maltesers but sad to say they didn't last long enough for the photo shoot LOL.....Although I was good and shared them with my hubby :)
Thanks you Shez and I can't wait for our next swap and meet up at Mill Rose in September :)
and here she is hanging in my bedroom, looks like she was made just for this spot doesn't she???
This is the beautiful bag I received in the blue themed lucky dip swap we have have our Mill Rosie meet ups and I was the lucky girl who drew out Rosalie's gorgeous creation, two of my favourite things....bags and Bronwyn Hayes and to have them combined in such a divine bag was pure bliss for me and to think Rosalie was worried her stitching wasn't good enough! I think it's fantastic and the other girls thought so too I nearly didn't get to take this home as a few of the other girls were whispering they'd love to take it home so I had to hide it till home time :)
Here's a closer look at the front of the bag.....
and the inside with the beautiful stitchery continued on the pockets.....Thank you so much Rosalie I love it and it has already become a firm favourite for stitching outings as it's so roomy and can fit a couple of projects into it without appearing too bulky :)
this is one of the projects I was working on last night for FNWF, adding another row to my snowflake bed runner and crocheting around a few more squares for another row.....I think this may end up about 5 or 6 rows high with 15 squares wide I've already put it across the foot of my bed and I must say it's looking really good and I can't wait to have this finished and residing there real soon.I f I can only manage 5 rows I'm thinking of using the odd squares to make up a cushion front to go on the bed as well, what do you think or would that be too much in one space?
Another project I worked a few rows on was this ripple cushion cover I'm making to go on one of our couches, love the colour combination, I may just need to get a few more balls and work up a couple of more cushions in different patterns for the couches for winter, so nice to cosy up to on a cold winters night :)
