FNWF

I am a little late showing you what I got up to Friday night. I managed to finish the 2nd last block of my Christmas blocks between encouraging (shouting at) my team Brisbane Broncos and getting sustenance from a Tim Tam or four. Sadly we lost :( Moving on....
 I now have a nice little bundle of completed blocks.
I just have this little fellow left to finish...nearly there too.
and then I can definitely feel a little Christmas quilt coming on.
Big thanks to Cheryll  for once again being such a lovely hostess and gathering us all together.

Yesterday after some family obligations were fulfilled I planted a new Clivia. A gorgeous yellow one that my dear friend Gaye bought as a gift for me on a recent visit to Toowoomba. I have hankered after one for ages as I actually seem to be able to grow them although the rest are the common orange variety. So I hope I can get this little beauty to flower. I am going  to do my very best. I have the worm tea (wee) ready and I shall sing to it and give it a little Reiki even....Mr R. is also on notice not to go within a mile of it with anything sharp or he will suffer a terrible damage.
Here's hoping. Thank you Gaye....you little sweetie you.
This is what I have been playing with today.
I adore this piece of fabric and as there is only a small amount of it I thought it was time it "became" something pretty.
That is it from me. I am off to do a little hand stitching now and also make some Kumara and Pumpkin soup for dinner. Enjoy the little bit of weekend that is left.
Blessings Michelle xxx
