FTF is Back

One of my favourite things is back......
Hosted by the gorgeous SHAY from Quilting in my Pjamamas This in itself could be my FTF however after finally de - Christmasing the house I have been finally able to use my gorgeous table runner made for me by the lovely Cheryll for Christmas. So this is it for today.
It looks so lovely on my dining room table and Cheryll has made it using another all time fav....Robyn Pandolph fabrics.
Aren't they gorgeous fabrics. I love it so much I have to stroke it each time I walk past it. (I probably shouldn't have said that out loud )I have one other 'fav' today but as you can't smell what I can I shall have to tell you that there is nothing I love more than the smell of these little beauties...
ripening and yes they are in a shoe box because up here in the tropics you have to fight for your homegrown produce. You have to beat the flying foxes and the possoms to your crop. So when the crimson blush comes on the mangoes off the tree they come trying to leave their stalks on so they won't bleed sap on themselves and into the trusty shoebox they go to ripen....works a treat and as I said the smell is devine. These are a couple of baby "Bowens".
Pop on over to Shays FTF and share your favourite thing today.
On the sewing front I have decided I needed a little company whilst doing a little Christmas pattern for this year so a couple of friends are going to stitch with me which will be lovely. I'll show you mine and their progress as I go.
NOTE: with regards to my naughty little 'freebie' Angel, I have reloaded her and have had several girls tell me she is now working ok.....fingers crossed. I seem to create an error when opening it up for public access. I do hope you will all bare with me as I hope I will get better at it as I go along.
Have a lovely week end everyone. Please stay safe and try and stay cool friends here in Oz.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  5. Beautiful runner. Do you have to putt the lid on for them to ripen? I put my unripen tomatoes in a paper bag. Sharyn:)

  6. Love that runner! And as I sit here amidst a snow storm, having just got power back after three hours without, I can't imagine the smell of fresh fruit! I do have chocolate-covered mangoes I received for Christmas that I am still inhaling! Yummy!

  10. Hi Michelle, your table runner is gorgeous,.How wonderful to have your own Mango tree, I have just eaten a Nectarine from our tree, so sweet and juicy, but we have to beat the birds to them. I finally printed you little Angel thank you so much for her. Also loved your season minis from yesterday.
    Hope they didn't find any white ants.
    Hugs from Rosalie.
