FNWF

Happy Friday all. Remember these..
Well hopefully with only two more blocks to go I can get closer to finishing them tonight. I am joining all my other online stitching sister's over at Cheryll's for
I may even get a little done on these blocks too.
As you can see I have several WIP going on here and of course what does any self respecting stitcher do when she finds herself in this position....well of course she starts something new. A little bit of stitching has been done on the first Frosty block...
I am afraid I am just a lost cause but please don't try and save me....I am very happy about it.

Ages ago my lovely friend Kay gave me a piece of her gorgeous dark mauve Cooktown Orchid which I was thrilled about as I only have the very pale almost white one. Well it never seemed to thrive let alone flower so last year Kay gave me another snippet and last week it had it's first blooms...not only that the one I thought had not survived has popped up around the other side of the tree and bloomed also...just wonderful.
and this is the first one..
So I am very pleased I didn't manage to kill either of them. Our state emblem is so beautiful.
That's it from me. Enjoy your day and weekend. For those I am stitching with tonight I shall pop around sometime over the weekend to see what lovelies you stitched, or knitted or crocheted.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  11. Glad to see all your WIP are Christmas Michelle lol. Your orchids are beautiful - I grow some little native ones, but many do not like our cold Victorian winters

  20. Oh we could be peas in a pod, I thought I was the only one who abandoned current projects in the temptations of the new...if I had a dollar for every new project I started...
