A grand day out

The Mill Rosie Friends met for the second time yesterday and see how we have grown from five to a great big wonderful group.
The venue was the wonderful Mill Rose Quilting and Gallery and the delightful cafe next door, The Mill Rose Cottage Restaurant and Cafe, was where we enjoyed both lunch and afternoon tea.
The shop was overflowing with quilting fabric and goodies


and here's a sample of what we happily ate.


Eleven of us took part in a swap and this meeting we choose Anni Downes as the designer. 

Here's what I took along.  I'll be back tomorrow to show you the gorgeous swap item I received from Sharon.  Lucky me!

FABULOUS FREE STUFF

Simple cute and adorable - what more could you want? I love this little pheasant from Retro Mama.  Here's the LINK.  Thank you so much.
