What a day we had!

We couldn't of asked for a better day for all of us ladies to get together at Mill Rose Cottage
The sun was shining,
This is the bag that I made for the Annie Downs themed swap
 
It was a pattern out of her book the simple life
I also added a present pin cushion
and a Sewers emergency bag
Can't forget the chocolate.
Then wrapped it with button paper and ribbon.
 
We all met, chatted, then browsed the gorgeous range of everything that Mill Rose had to offer.
Eventually we sat and did some sewing and more chatting.

 So much to look at!

 We did our swap. This is Chris the lovely lady who was the recipient of my bag.
I was also the recipient of her beautiful handy work. I'll have to show you tomorrow for I don't have a picture of it as yet.
We then went off for a beautiful lunch...the food and service was absolutely excellent.
Then back for more sewing.
It was a shame that the day had to end.
A big thanks and hug to Melody the organizer and the Mill Rose staff for their wonderful hospitality.
