More Dresdens

I so enjoyed stitching the little Dresden's I have also been working on my large ones and now have quite a few appliqued to their backgrounds.
Have I mentioned how much I love French General by Moda????? Oh I have! Many times you say! Ok!
I also have not had any redwork in my work basket and I start to get withdrawals if there is none there so I have traced out a little Angel friend and have some stitches in her wings.
I am afraid she looks a little pale and pasty at the moment but I am sure she will come to life with a good dose of DMC 816....I am sure I have that thread in my veins...love it! Never tire of it! I think she will make a very sweet little sewing tote when I am done stitching. You can never have too many! Where else would you hide all your UFO's...at least this way they are in pretty bags. Or is that only me?
On a completely different note, I have been vetting some of my photos and I came across some that DD took many of which I have already posted but I just loved these....
You know how I love my little handmade bears, well this one is just loving her close up..
Oh wait! What about a black & white piccie while you are about it?
I love this pile of yummy fabrics in this one...
and just to prove a point...I really do love redwork stitching..
Thanks for indulging me...I did say I meander a bit.As my friend Ann would often tell  me... "focus" when I would wander off to far and change subjects without warning.
Before I go I just wanted to thank a lovely lady called Aunt Bea. I received the most kind and uplifting email from her which just made my day. Unfortunately when I tried to respond my email was bounced back saying "Delivery Failure". So I just wanted to say Big Hugs to you Aunt Bea and thank you for visiting me regularly and taking the time to tell me how much you like your visits. I so appreciated your kindness.
Blessings Michelle xxx

  5. Your dresdens look lovely on that background fabric. I love FG too. Sometimes I worry that everything I make has too much FG in it, then I realise I love it so much that I don't care.
