Mill Rosie Meet up…..

DSCF7701

Saturday saw me and my sister Anne heading off to Ballan for our Mill Rosie Meet up and boy did we have fun, I didn’t get much stitching done but I sure talked a lot LOl.  Above is a group photo of all the lovely lucky dip swap gifts that were made by everyone and by the looks on the recipients faces everyone loved what they received on the day.

The theme for this month was a 3 piece sewing set using any designer/colour etc…. I chose Leanne Beasley’s “Stitcher’s keeper” and included a pin cushion & needle keeper inside with some choccies, pins, needles etc….

Christine picked my number out and by the look on her face I think she was happy with what she got Smile

I was totally besotted with my lucky dip from the very clever Kim, all done in Bonnie and Camille fabrics from a Gail Pan design to me such a combination is a win, win situation you can never go wrong when using either! Thanks Kim I’m still smiling  Smile

But the best part was catching up with all the lovely ladies below, including a few with no bodies LOL…..I also stole a couple of photo’s from a few blogs as I missed taking a lot of photo’s this time as I was sooooo busy chatting and catching up with everyone so I hope the girls will forgive me  Smile
