A very Millrose weekend

I’m just back from a wonderfully creative weekend at Millrose.

20160503-191749.jpgFrom Friday mid-morning until Sunday mid-afternoon, the house was a hive of activity!

Amanda played with Drunkard’s Path blocks

20160503-192414.jpgcut out these fabrics

20160503-192505.jpgto make these bags

20160503-192540.jpgand stitched this block

20160503-192623.jpg(and she finished it – I just didn’t get a pic)

Maree started knitting a scarf

20160503-192734.jpgand had this much done by Friday evening!

20160503-192820.jpgShe stitched some stars (hmm, can’t find a pic of that – sorry) and cut out and started making a hexagon box

20160503-193134.jpgFleur stitched hexagons

20160503-193217.jpgstitched more hexagons, and bought some fabrics for the hexagons.

20160503-193319.jpgGJ did some super secret stitching – which I can’t show you, and some other secret stitching which I can show you a little bit of

20160503-193710.jpgCarolyn made lots, and lots of Emma Mary blocks

20160503-193815.jpgHeather played with stars

    Wow, had to look thru this several times,so much to take in. Very productive weekend, must be a wonderful place. I especially like what Fleur is doing, sweet fabrics. Will look forward to seeing more of hers, and also your new project. Is it a requirement that your stitchers each have a sweet, darling, adorable little tin to hold their amazing projects??

  8. I would call the hexagon box an etui. Lots of fabulous projects, but as I sit in the sun and enjoy a glass of wine, I don’t mind for once that I wasn’t there!!
