Nice Post

I gave myself a little treat and they arrived today...
I wanted some more special pretties to work with on my Crazy patch quilt...oh except for the Mistletoe!
No guesses there what that's for.
Stitching wise I have been doing a bit of embroidery to finish off  a couple of completed blocks on my new project.... keeps me from getting bored.
Speaking of stitching. I forgot a couple of quilts from the Toowoomba show! Senior Moment!
I really love this version of a Bronwyn Hayes design worked in navy and cream. it was stunning in real life.
The colours in the next one were so soft and creamy...
This one was one of my favourites on the day so I cannot believe that I forgot it.
Ever had a "bad hair" day well apparently little owls do too.....
It was entered in the Owl challenge and is the work of fellow blogger Christine from Bluebirds and Bumblebees  I think it is so sweet. Gave me quite a giggle.
I shall leave you with a few feathered friends from yesterday....
and who could leave out the 'chippy thieves'....
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
