Getting red, red, ready for the Mill Rosie Friends get together.

I spent the weekend doing some secret stitching for the next Mill Rosie Friends Get Together.  At our next meeting we are having an Anni Downs Swap.  All you have to do is make a project by Anni - we will put them in a great big bag - and then participants can lucky dip for a pressie.  Here's an example of what was swapped at the last meeting made by Shez and Barb, with the chosen designer Rosalie Quinlan
From Shez...

...and from Barb
So how do you become a member of the Mill Rosie Friends.  Just come along to our next Bloggers Get Together.  Everyone is very welcome.  You don't have to have your own blog, you can be a blog reader too.
