FNWF & New Homespun Calendar

After some Domestic Goddess duties and a lovely visit from my friend Ann I settled down for a night of stitching because it was ...
Hosted by the lovely Cheryll over at Gone Stitchin'  Thank you Cheryll for having us over. I had a definite plan. I really wanted to complete the butterfly antennae on my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt. So pleased to report all done!!!
 So technically now it is all finished and just needs quilting.
Sorry I didn't think to press it before it's photo. With that job out of the way I got out my boxes of little Angels....
and continued on with my embroidery on them. I am slowly getting a very pretty choir of Angels.
These took me late into the evening so it was off to bed I went feeling quite chuffed with my efforts....how about you? I am still trying to get around and visit the other Friday nighters...you see I have had a baby celebration for a niece yesterday and I have another one for a dear friend today....Baby Showers everywhere! So lots of cuteness everywhere too!
HOMESPUN CALENDAR:
When I started this journey I had a bit of a dream for myself you might say but honestly it has exceeded anything I had dreamed of. Doing what I love, having it appreciated by other stitchers and meeting such wonderful women...a little while back I felt very blessed to have been included in the gorgeous "Homespun" 2015 Diary. So as you can imagine I am over the moon to have my Cupcake Capers project also included in the "Sew Pretty" 2015 Calendar that Homespun magazine has released.
Once again featuring beautiful Tilda fabrics and project photos from our very clever designers. It is a beautiful companion to the Diary. Each month has a beautiful full colour page to inspire you. I am the pin up girl for August! YAY!
You will love having these beautiful images to keep you company throughout 2015. I know I am going to!
Thanks Homespun team for putting together such a beautiful Calendar and making my little heart sing while you were at it.
Enjoy your Sunday folks,
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
