Woolly Bits Class

Thank you all so much for your birthday wishes – I had a lovely day, which, as you can see, turned into a weekend of celebration!

Sunday heralded an early start, and a drive up the highway to Millrose for our Woolly Bits class.

There are changes afoot at Millrose, new doors

20150302-195346.jpgnew rooms being decked in fabric finery

20150302-195411.jpgand the usually abundance of fabulous fabrics

20150302-195445.jpgWe had our class in the new classroom, where there was some lovely show and tell to start the day; Jan K’s leopard is finished

20150302-195719.jpgA wide variety of choices for lunch

20150302-195835.jpgensured we had enough energy to prep and stitch all afternoon; I actually achieved quite a bit

20150302-195956.jpgand so did the others

20150302-200032.jpg(for those who are wondering, the Flower Bed Blocks are a ring-in; Charmaine arrived to her class a week early, so she joined us!)

Then afternoon tea arrived, and to my delight

20150302-200307.jpg(thanks for the pic, GJ!) another slice of birthday cake!

20150302-200345.jpgThis one was a flourless orange cake – yum! – and as it had been Charmaine’s birthday the day before, we shared the blowing out of the candle, and went halves in the cake. The rest of the class were treated to cheesecake

Ah, it’s always such a lovely day on Woolly Bits Day! Thank you Sue and Lizzie!

    Lovely to see you smiling face Meredithe! I really must visit Millrose one day! It looks like a wonderful place to visit and stitch at! All those wooly bits look like fun too!

    Happy Belated Birthday Meredithe, looks like you had a lovely weekend, love the colors you chose for your birds and all the other wooly bits, all so cheery and summery, very inspiring!

  4. What a visual feast and happy belated birthday wishes.

  5. I, of course, know what Miss Helen means – we will have to work harder to convince her that woolly bits are fun! Lots of lovely sewing – I am ready to make a start on mine, as I have been studying all the stitches on my Sue Spargo Craftsy class. The food looks fabulous – and more cake – excellent!!!
