Mill Rosie sewing day and LUNCH & MEETING with friends

I had the best day catching up with blogging friends for the first time.
I met about 7 blogging friends, 2 swap partners, 4 retreat friends,  3 Gisborne Quilters & some NOTY friends.

Today the  got together at The Mill Rose Cottage at Ballan.
We had a great time chatting, swapping, eating and a little bit of sewing.

We also had to make a Leanne Beasley project to swap. It could be anything. That was hard being it was my first time. 
This is what I made...... & Shez  from 

This is what I received
Thanks Sue from NOTY

1st ever. Mini. I have never made one or received one......
The funny thing is... I am making this quilt. Granted, I started it about ????? years ago. 
This may inspire me to get it out and work on it.

Thanks to everyone for a great day.
The show and tell was great. All the projects were wonderful to see.
The food was fantastic.
The inspiration was amazing....
