Friday Night Stitching

Good morning everyone. How I enjoyed my morning walk today. We had showers overnight so it was nice and cool. Even though I live in densely populated suburbia because of the conservation park close by we have an abundance of bird life. Many kept me company this morning....Rainbow Lorikeets noisily heralded the morning whether you were ready or not...
Magpies gathering their breakfast..
with their beautiful warbling, a favourite of mine. Lots of top-knotted pigeons fluttering out of the way, even a pair of beautiful ducks. I pass by two beautiful Frangapani trees each morning which at the moment are just laden with flowers and the smell on the morning air is just devine.
Such a lovely wander and home to hot coffee.
Last evening I linked up over at Cheryll's at Gone Stitchin' for a Sew in with other blogging friends from all over Australia overseas. Recently while on retreat I was gifted some lovely fabric and thread from the lovely
Sandi and I have had it in mind as a background for a little "birdie" project I wanted to create.
So I choose some other bits and pieces and set to work....after a bit of scribbling and a little needle turn to start.
I was quite pleased that I got this far with it...
You will have to wait to see what it becomes....love that background! Thanks Sandi!
I also stitched a couple more blades together on my French General Dresdens.
Did you get some stitching done?? I am looking forward to visiting to see what everyone else got up to.
Today is a special day for two reasons the first and most important for me is that it is our DD Birthday so
and also it is "International Womens Day" too. I thought I would share a favourite of mine which you have seen before but it inspires me to 'love' where I am at in this moment and celebrate womanhood.
So Happy Womens Day to all you stunning and talented  Goddesses out there and big Birthday hugs to Melissa.
Namaste & Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  26. Happy Birthday to DD. Beautiful stitchery. I keep reading about needle turn, but have no experience or even knowledge about it. Always something new to learn eh? lol

  27. Have just discovered your blog and wanted to add to the 'birds' comment. I was shifting lambs the other day (using the quad bike)and a huge flock of cockatoos took flight. I must have been amongst a thousand of the screeching birds. How pretty to see them silhouetted against the setting sun. We also have blue wrens, lorikeets and magpies - amongst others - here at the farm and are often rewarded with watching their little antics. Best wishes
