Portobello Friendship Quilt And A New Blogger

Do you remember me working on this..
Well Portobello Friendship ended up in here..
The latest issue of Country Threads magazine. I really loved making this quilt. From beginning to end and I think that the fact that I had some of my lovely friend Fiona's (BubzRugz) fabric generously gifted to me in it has made it even more special. Fiona came to my aid when I could not source anymore of this range anywhere (of course I saw it everywhere after it was made) which really helped me complete it as I had imagined it. So if you want to make it too, now you can.
I have been diligently working on my next swap item for my Friend's stitching group...but just a sneaky because you don't know who's lurking!!!
I have also been enjoying my redwork. I find it very therapeutic. It is like drawing with thread instead of a pencil.
Now I was really excited to hear that my very talented friend Tracey White (nee Bormann) has after all these years of saying she was going to......has finally got her blog up and running. Tracey is a beautiful artist and is 100% responsible for throwing me into the arena of having my work published. Boy what a wonderful journey it has been so far. Tracey's blog is called Rose Petals Past  and if you click on the name it will take you there. She is currently working on mixed media work but she also has an etsy shop you can check out as well. Many of you who have visited the craft shows at Mt Tambourine would have seen Tracey's lovely work. Lots of upcycled vintage items beautifully given a new purpose.We just have to hope we can pull her away from her canvases and brushes so she remembers to do some posts..lol!

Lastly thank you everyone for all your Prayers and kind thoughts for Erin. She underwent a series of tests yesterday...not very pleasant for her. Now we have the hard job of waiting for the results and possible outcomes for her. Extremely hard on her Mum and Dad as you can imagine.
We are holding positivity uppermost in our minds and hearts for her.
I wish you a wonderful day,
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
