What I have been Stitching

My circles are all finished and in typical Michelle style I cut out and started the circles confident that I would have enough background fabric to use all charm squares...Wrong!!! So plan B. We now have 4 co-ordinating corner squares but just a tad different. I then found there is no more Rural Jardin available in the colours I wanted remaining on the planet (sigh) so I chose with much trepidation 2 fabrics from the French General "Favourites" range and I actually love it.
I have thrown my circles around with happy abandon and I think they look quite ok with this fabric..
Now that I know I can finish it and be happy with my choices I can put it aside to play with later as I have a few Magazine deadlines to meet. Today I got this one a lot closer with only the binding to stitch down...a sneaky peek for you.
I have enjoyed creating this happy summery project...hope you will like it too when it is revealed.
These little birdies in my hoop are next on the list...
Hhmm! Wonder what they will become???? Redwork always makes me happy, how about you?
Well I must get back to my binding and a spot of coffee in my favourite cup as it is a little cool here but still a glorious Queensland winter's day.
Just wanted to say thank you all for your heartfelt wishes for my cousin. She remains unchanged which at least gives us hope...big hugs to you all xx
Hope you are nice and toasty where ever you are.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  14. One of the best things about French General is that you can always find one to coordinate with what you have. Your circles quilt will look great. Lovely relaxing stitching (except for the deadlines).
