A Little Under the Weather

These won't be far away from me today as I am feeling a little below par with a cold and I will cheerfully admit to being a sook and not very good at not feeling up to much. At least you can still stitch with a cold...we are lost causes aren't we!
I am nearly finished my 12 hexies and I love them.
I have found stitching them down with applique really relaxing.
I am a city slicker and live in the 'burbs and have definite "tree envy" of those friends of mine who live in more rural settings....you know who you are!! Anyway my dear friend Helen lives way up a mountain in the Hinterland around Beechmont (simply gorgeous old growth forests) and she blessed and gifted us with these lovely organically grown pumpkins at Yoga on Monday...s
Aren't they beauties. I am going to share some and I can feel some Pumpkin soup and lovely roasted pumpkin in the making with the rest. Yum! Thanks lovely Helen xx
Yesterday I went along with to Under 8's day at my eldest Grandson's school.
They had a blast what fun. He here his on the obstacle course coming through the tunnel.
The teachers did a fantastic job. They are really special people and it is such a shame they are under so much pressure all the time with all manner of things that takes them away from what they do best and that is to teach our kids. I take my hat off to them I really do.
Well that is it from me I am off to my trusty brown chair and my cup of lemon and ginger tea.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  6. Hope you have a restful day and feel better soon. I haven't thought about Under 8's day in over 6 years since we lived in Queensland. It's a really great day for the kids.

  8. a speedy recovery Michelle, make sure you keep up the stitching. A stitch a day keeps the doctor (or the psychologist) away!
    love your hexies.
    Dedicated teachers are a very precious resource, we definitely should look after them.

  16. You need to make pumpkin soup out of that lovely pumpkin. I suspect it would have magical properties in making you feel better. I hope you are feeling better now.

    Your hexies look fabulous!
