Baby Alphabet

My "Baby Alphabet" is now finished and ready. I haven't stitched a sample yet as it appears lots of you couldn't wait that long....which is very nice. Must be all those new Nana's out there. So instead of a photo of a sample on the front I have drawn a little piccie that you could also use maybe as a little wall hanging or framed piece. I asked a couple of my little friends to show it to you.
Once again there are 26 separate letters each with their own little stitchery design. There are no projects included in the pattern so you can be creative and use them on whatever you would like to.
They look great on bunting for the nursery, framed or put on to a canvas, wall hangings, on bibs, burp towels, baby albums or you can link the letters BABY and make a lovely framed piece.
I hope you like my little friends...there are a floppy bunny, cute teddy, a little lamb, owls even a little giraffe.
The cost is $14.00 Aus and if you wish to purchase one you can email on
My friend Diane has her copy stashed in her sewing box already to get stitching for her gorgeous new grandson (saw piccies last night adorable!!!!!)
I have actually been doing quite a bit of quiet stitching but really all I can show you is a bit of a sneaky and I feel so mean....
My pile is getting larger and I will be forced to make friends with my sewing machine very shortly.
Yesterday on my know bill paying etc. I happened to get sidetracked in the book store (not hard for me I assure you. I so wanted to have that book store in the movie You've Got Mail!) and anyway I have read a couple of books by author Tony Parsons, who writes Aussie country family type sagas that are loosely based around folks he knew or compilations of such. The theme also features the breeding and training of our working dogs here...Kelpies. I really enjoyed the two I read being a big dog lover.
So I was very happy to get this book in my hot little hands for less than half price.
I am really looking forward to getting all involved in these pages.
That's it from me, oh almost forgot....I am signing up over at Cheryll's for...

We are bending the rules and having it later this month due to New Year festivities. Why don't you pop over and sign up too. It is good fun.
Now I am really done!
Enjoy your day,
Blessings Michelle xxx
