Hoorah, Hooray! We’ve finally had a Woolly Bits Day! It’s been some 18 months (and for some of us a bit more) since we’ve had a Woolly Bits day. Millrose is no longer open on Sundays so we booked a Saturday for an impromptu get together and it was Just Wonderful!
The shop is looking great – lots of changes have happened structurally and how/where goods are now laid out
and the cafe is now in the shop (rather then down the road) in a lovely new room and still with the same great food
After lots of catching up on what everyone has been doing and how we all coped with 2020 (can you imagine how much chatter there was??), some of us settled down to some stitching in one form or another.
Jacinta made this quilt during 2020 which she’s now hand quilting
and she’s started making these beautiful blocks, with one idea in mind that she just wasn’t sure of
and after much discussion with everyone putting in their two-penneth worth, GJ came up with this idea for a layout which we all loved
GJ has been stitching up Christmas decorations (getting in early!)
and was embroidering this pretty pattern on linen
Joy started an Anna Maria Horner pattern (can’t remember what it’s called – sorry)
Ginny was covering squares using EPP in preparation for some embroidery
Lynne was the only one of us doing any woolly bits
and I’d taken my “Daisy Days” blocks
but I was too excited to settle to stitching, although after much persuasion I did (at the end of the afternoon!) finally put 4 blocks together – so unlike me!
It really was a special day and a joy to catch up with these wonderful women. So much so we’ve made another couple of dates for during the year (and fingers crossed we will be able to keep them!).
