Mill Rosie Gathering

 What a great day we all enjoyed at Mill Rose Cottage on Saturday.
Smiling faces all around, here are Christine and Mel.
 Sue with her lovely swap gift, I travelled with Sue, although she has only lived in Melbourne for a short time she has an inbuilt compass for finding her way around, and even drove our new member  Kim home to Oak Park.
Thank you Sue, you are a wonderful driver.
 Here we have Barb showing her swap gift, and Ann.
 Mel with her swap gift, a bit out of focus,(my bad photography)
  And our new member Kim with her lovely gift, this is where the battery went flat on my camera.
So the rest of these photos were taken at home, or borrowed from our other Sue's blog,
 My gorgeous gift, made by Lyn, a basket full of amazing goodies, all matching, Lyn had really gone the extra mile. Thank you so much Lyn I love it all.
 This fabulous idea was included in the basket, a Quilters Survival kit, a pretty little bag filled with such fun things, hope you can read all the contents.
 These are the photos I borrowed, Cheryl, me and Sue, getting some stitching done.

 Cheryl with her swap gift, made my me, I had once again forgotten to take a photograph before wrapping it, it included a box of Maltesers which Cheryl and Shez were planning to roll around the dashboard on the way home, hope you enjoyed them girls.

All the wonderful red themed loveliness to top off another fabulous gathering of friends.

National Mug Rug Day

 Today is National Mug Rug Day.
This little beauty was made for me by my dear friend Dorothy, who knows how much I love pretty  teacups.
Now although I have not made many Mug Rugs myself, I must confess to making this one in December2013 for a dear friend.
This friend isn't fond of them at all !!!
Although maybe she is warming to them just a bit, after receiving so many.
Luv Ya Shez,

Musings of a lazy blogger

 It is such a long time between between posts, maybe I should change my blog name to the lazy blogger.
I have still been doing a bit of sewing, a couple of stitcheries, I can't show yet.
For years I have wanted to make a crazy quilt and have been collecting bits and pieces for that purpose, at last I have started, these are my first two 12.5 inch blocks, still works in progress.

 I am not sure what I am doing, but enjoying myself immensely in the process.
I may call this quilt "Butterfly Dreaming" or perhaps "Garden Dreaming" or even "The Birds and the Bees', no not that.
I have this lovely book by Allie Aller to drool over, I don't think mine will ever be up to Allie's standard, but I'm having fun trying.
Anyway until next time, whenever that will be,
Live well,  Laugh often, and Love much.
