Mill Rosie photo’s and FNSI Results……


This was just a few of the lovely items made by the clever girls of the Mill Rosie group……


A few more items from our red swap this month, I had to take two photo’s as I couldn’t get all this loveliness into one shot! Aren’t we a clever and talented bunch of ladies!!


I was also VERY spoilt by Sharon of in our one on one swap with this gorgeous weekender bag designed by Amy Butler made using a honeycomb pack of  the new Midwinter red range of fabrics that I just love!

I cannot thank Sharon enough for this beautiful bag  and it will be travelling with me in April as I travel around Tassie for my birthday trip with my sister Anne, it will be put to good use by being filled to the brim with craft projects I can work on while over there and I have a funny feeling Sharon’s blanket will be one of them, crochet is such a portable craft!

Now Sharon understands that she needs to be a  bit patient with me as I’m still working on her crocheted blanket for this swap and I suspect it’s going to take a few more months to get to the finish stage with it but I’m loving how her blanket is turning out I may just have a little bit of difficulty actually giving it up when it’s done  I can just picture me and Sharon having a playful tug of war over it when I present her with it lol….

I’ll post a few more Mill Rosie photo’s  over the next couple of days as I took quite a lot on the day!


Now onto FNSI results and this is what I managed to do while watching a bit of TV, I managed to sew two rows together now to get onto making the other squares so I can finish this and present it to the mum to be before my next hair appointment in March yikes!

FNSI and Mill Rosie meet up!


This is what I’ll be working on tonight, putting all these squares together to make another baby blanket, I’m going to be making it 6 x 6 with a pink ruffled edge to soften the grey.


this red spotty parcel will be travelling with me tomorrow to our Mill Rosie meet up in Ballan, I’ll post pic’s of what we got up to when I get back. I can’t wait to see everyone again and catch up with all the gossip…….see you tomorrow girls!

FNWF Results…..


I managed to work two more rows of colour on my Hubby’s ripple blanket and now I’ve completed three rows of each of the eleven main colours I’m now back to the first colour, now it’s just a matter of repeating these eleven colours till the blanket is done.


I also did a bit more stitching on this Rosalie Quinlan Christmas stitchery, just a bit more and it will be finished, I really enjoy working with Cosmo threads and also using just one colour for a project.

I must start doing a bit of blog hopping tonight and see what everyone else got up to with their Friday night crafting…….
