Our Michelle

It's funny how sometimes you feel such a bond with someone that you feel they are 'yours'.  That's how I feel about our dear friend, Michelle Ridgeway.  And so I was thrilled when the Mill Rosie girls decided that this meeting Michelle would be our featured designer.
Here's some of the goodies we swapped











(Sorry the main part of the gift is not on show but I managed to blur all my other pictures of Barb))


(and a smaller picture of Cheryl as I had to steal if from Shez's blog and remove it from one of her Picmonkey collages.  Thank you Picmonkey queen.)
We had so much fun.
I was lucky enough to receive my gift from Rosalie and snap - we chose the same project.  I love this beautiful set so I was very, very happy to receive Rosalie's version.
This site is one to treasure - Learn How to Finish with the Twisted Stitcher.  How to finish just about anything involving stitching..  I love this detailed tutorial on how to finish The Felt Mounted Ornament, which you will find HERE.
Vonna has a fabulous blog too, please visit her at The Twisted Stitcher.

And a PS.  Here is Liz's picture of everyone at Crafty Hijinks.
