Inspired by Simple Pleasures...

Saturday I joined a group of lovely ladies at Mill Rose Cottage for a stitching good time.
Lovely setting, Lovely fabric and delicious food, adds up to a perfect Saturday.
The optional swap was a little something made from an Anni Downs design.
I chose three designs from her book 'Simple Pleasures'.
Stitched with DMC Red/Pink thread and arranged as a long narrow hanging, perfect for a little space.

I did finish something see!
(I secretly wished to get my own project back)
The other projects were beautiful too, and I got something gorgeous that I would not make myself. I'll get a photo and show you soon.

I managed to get some sewing and shopping done too.

A Beautiful day all round.
Thanks to Melody for coordinating all this fun.
Wishing you all a wonderful week.

Beautifully stitched too. I don't think I would have wanted to part from it either. Perhaps you will have to make another just for you.
