Good Morning

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I did and it was nice to be out and about in such lovely Spring weather. After our little road trip we relaxed on our front patio and watched the display put on by our local footy club to celebrate their end of season...
Having an almost front row seat we enjoy it every year...
I did a little bit of stitching and playing yesterday while Mr R. watched those fast cars go around and around on that track at Bathurst.....
Very relaxing...
A little show and tell to start the friend Robyn has been stitching my "C" is for Christmas.
Look how pretty it looks all finished.
Jeanette has made the sweetest bunting from my baby alphabet for her dear little Grandson.
Thanks so much for sharing girls.....loved seeing them.
A little show and tell from me too...
For all my "Gingie" fans out there, my new Christmas Gingie Banner is in the latest Country Threads Magazine...
I was really excited about this one and loved creating it.....very hard to keep my trap shut and not spill the beans!
Hope you like stitching it as much as I did.....I know a couple of little Christmas stitchers all ready with needles threaded....he he!
That's it from me as my Yoga mat is calling me,
Wishing you a beautiful day.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  15. What lovely front row seats for those fireworks. They look like xmas fabrics for your new project - yummy. And I LOVED your gingie project in Country Threads - of all your wonderful gingie projects, think this one is my very favourite. And yes I'm one of those who have started lol

  20. I just love your alphabets. I found out recently that I am to become a Nana so out to my wonderful local Country Yard I trot and with Kerryn's help have designed and have just started making, not one but two crib quilts (one blue, one pink)! Of course your baby alphabet will be the star! Have traced all letters I need and will now start stitching!! So please keep going with your lovely alphabets and stitcheries - would love an Easter one:) Aurely
