Last weekend we took another little road trip.
We went for a visit to somewhere I have been meaning to go for a while, Millrose Cottage in Ballan.
Apart from wanting to peruse their gorgeous fabric collection and have lunch in their cafe I wanted to meet up with my bloggy friend, lovely Lizzie.
While we were there we saw Jan taking a class just outside the store, printing images from nature onto fabric - just one of the courses available through Millrose.
|This stamp is made using five erasers on a block of wood|
The girls, of course, showed an interest in what they were doing and before we knew it they had been invited to join in, were aproned up and stamping and printing to their heart's content.
|Jan was such a patient and welcoming teacher!|
|All dressed up and ready to print|
|Using a cardboard roll to print was one of the techniques used|
They thoroughly enjoyed their printing session under the trees at Millrose.
And so did I, because it gave me the time to sit down with the shop owner, Sue, for her to teach me the basics and get me started on the lovely thing that came home in this box...
|Love really is a brown box tied with a red ribbon!!|
So thanks to these three lovelies...
This ace guy...
and the very lovely Lizzie and Sue from Millrose for enabling me to have such a great day.
I think all my Christmases really did come at once!
