More Pretty Mail & Stitching

The lovely Birthday Club ladies have spoiled me some more.
Gorgeous fabrics, lovely threads and Pat has knitted me such a pretty scarf. Thank you so much Pat and Sharon for my lovely gifts and wishes xx
My stash of French General fabrics is growing and looking so pretty...oh dreaming of the possiblities!
I have been quilting away on my last "secret" project and am making good progress.
I have also begun a little project with a bit of needleturn applique and stitchery....
I just love that pretty starry fabric!!! I may do a little more on it when I join all my on line friends tomorrow night over at Wendy's.
If you would like to join us you can sign up HERE.
This morning as I was having a little wander in the sunshine whilst finishing my morning coffee I noticed my very pretty pink geranium still had the raindrops from overnight on it's petals and they were glistening like diamonds in the morning sun.
Do simple things like that make you smile? Or is it just me? They make me happy and I am glad she caught my attention....and of course she is a "she" who else would wear diamonds so beautifully!
Wishing you a beautiful day,
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
