Saturday saw me head of with my sister Anne to our annual pilgrimage to Ballan for our Mill Rosie meet up. I didn’t take as many photo’s as usual as I just couldn’t move around as quickly as I used so so I’ve borrowed some photo’s from Shez’s blog to fill in the gaps.
the beautiful cat softy I am holding in the bottom right photo was from the lovely Ofaigh and came as a complete surprise when she presented me with her and of course she’s done up in my favourite colours of red & white thank you O’faigh you made my day!
This meetings swap was to be a project from Leanne Beasley and Sue was the lucky recipient below…… I think by the smile on her face she liked what she picked
I was also lucky enough to receive my beautiful gift from Marg below…
I was totally spoilt and the best thing was the fabric Marg chose to use to compliment the stitcheries was midwinter reds my absolute favourite fabric range it has such a lovely mxi of reds and creams….I think you can see by my expression I was delighted to receive this as well Thanks Marg it will be taking pride of place on my coffee table for everyone to admire.
This is the project I took with me to work on during the day, but as usual too much chatting, catching up and good food got in the way of too much being done on the day so after a 3 hour nap on Sunday I set to work on adding the final edging to these African flower hexagons……117 completed ready to sew together and another 164 still needing 2 more rows before I can add them to the finish pile in the bag Shez made me for my birthday this year so I better get a hop on and start cracking the whip at myself.
I’ve also been working on a secret project for my one on one swap with Sharon and last Saturday saw me presenting her with the finished blanket so just to tease you a little I’ll put a picture below of one of the work in progress pictures I’ve been taking and tomorrow I’ll do a full reveal
