Still Breathing!

Yes I am still breathing....just! Or so it has felt like the last week or so. This flu is taking some getting over. Consequently not a lot of anything has been happening here. I have become a  bit of a "lurker" in blogland keeping up with all your doings. My poor Lucy Boston blocks got abandoned halfway through joining a block of 4....
Just when it was getting interesting! I am so pleased to discover that you do get into a bit of a rhythm with them so I have hopes that I will at least have a nice wall hanging if not a full quilt.
With Lucy tossed aside I decided I fancied a bit of embroidery which always cheers me up. Add a pretty heart and viola!

I love embroidery on pretty felt. I also love the sweet cotton lace that I buy from our Fee's.
My lovely friend Lorel gifted me some gorgeous French General fabric for my Birthday this week.
Soooo pretty! There was also some lovely Tim Tam chokkie bites but they are no more....I needed them to help me recover! That's my story anyway!
Lastly I wanted to show you the sweet little Willowtree girl I bought in my birthplace. Each time I look for a little memento when we visit but nothing ever seemed just right....until "Forget-me-not". She seemed just perfect and is good company for my "Angel of the Spirit"
I hope you are having a very nice Sunday doing something you love.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  6. Hope you continue to feel improved Michelle.Loving what you have done so far with LB.I have done about 7 blocks so far but need to sew the background around otherwise it could get too tedious. Not too sure how far I will get making these beauties. A quilt would be nice. Love your pink heart. Shirley N.Z.
