Stitching At Ross


Yesterday Jules, Kerrie and myself heading to Ross for the Bloggers and Friends Gathering. It was organised by Jo and she did an amazing job....the day was so much fun. Thanks Jo!!

There were 19 of us and we spent our day in a lovely room at the Stables Bakery.

It was great to catch up with some bloggers we knew and to meet others and to see their gorgeous work in show and tell. Everyone kept busy, stitching and chatting!!

After a yummy lunch, some of the girls explored the shops of Ross (I think the dreadful weather stopped most of us!) and then there was a "Secret Santa" Fat Quarter swap and some wonderful lucky door prizes, kindly donated by The Quilted Crow and Helen from Hugs and Kisses:

A wonderful, relaxing and inspirational day..... I do hope it becomes an annual tradition!!

What a wonderful idea.

What a wonderful place to gather and it does look like fun was had by all. I think I enjoy getting together with my quilting friends and doing handwork more than about anything else I know - unless its sitting and rocking to sleep one of my grandbabies.ityre
