Quiet Weekend

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. Ours was very quiet except for a spot of babysitting which was very noisy. We are still settling back into the old routine so visits to the rellies and catching up on chores were the go for us. I have felt really renewed since my holiday (except for today when a thumper of a headache has come to keep me company) so I have been drawing and stitching up a storm and even stitched several projects that have been drawn for a very long time. Echoes of "stitch me! stitch me!" saw me doing just that.
So I have a couple of sneakies for you...
and I just loved this little fellow when he emerged from my pencil...
I am very fortunate to belong to a Birthday fat 1/4 group and you can nominate what fabrics are on your wish list. I have had a project in mind for a long time now so I said reds/creams were on my wish list and I was blessed with many gorgeous fabrics in this colour way. So as hard as it has been I have been having a little chop of some of my Birthday fabrics. These are the creams or lighter ones and I still need more ( fabric shopping...such a hardship) and then I have all the reds to chop up.
and also little piles of these too...
Still lots more to go but I am pleased that some of the preparation has been started.
I wish you all a wonderful day....I am off to make better friends with some pain medication and a lovely cup of Lemon & Ginger tea....always makes me feel better.
Oh! One last thing. Thank you to all of you who have given me such lovely feedback about my two new patterns (see previous post) and purchased your very own copies. I am thrilled to say they are flying out the door..... so big hugs (((((o)))))
Blessings Michelle xxx

  19. Your new patterns look lovely. I like the little snowman too. I hope your headache is gone. A sprig of rosemary in your tea is supposed to be good for headaches and stress. I can highly recommend it.
