I am a Bit Late - FNSI & Thank You's

I am so late getting around to all my FNSI friends. A big thank you to "Wonderful Wendy" for looking after us so nicely throughout the year. It has been a while since I was able to chose a summer project and just work away quietly on it. After a crazy morning on Friday a very cold one of these was consumed to cool me down.....they are one of the nicest Queenslander's I know!!

 I popped a DVD on "Miss Potter" to be precise and stitched away on the applique I have wanted to add to my Dresden Plate quilt.
This is definitely a "fly by the seat of your pants" project and see how the next bit will look. I like it so far...
I am using some of my lovely Birthday club French General fabrics for the applique. I added another birdie up the other end last night. I just love this quilt and I am so happy I hatched it and stroked it until just the right design came along for it. I am trying to get around and catch up with you all and see what you were up to.
I also have some thank you's. Thank you Karen for this gorgeous handmade card....I love it!
To Christine for the cutest little scissor fob.....thank you so much.
Dear Fiona created this gorgeous little ornie, that still has me scratching my head....clever people!
You have all added to my Christmas Joy....thank you xx
FHFS Days 7 & 8 ( I hope that's right lol)
This cute little fellow popped out of the package to say hello!
Has to he Rudie with that nose!
This package has had me intrigued from the get today I gave in!
sooooooooo cute! I now have a gorgeous little Christmas family!
Thank you Keryn.....I just love them, they are perfection! You are so very clever xxx
Lastly if I am not talking to know there should be an award for "EXTREME" blog posting! I really do try to keep it short but never happens...anyway I am waffling. I wanted to show you  how beautiful my new table topper looks on my table.
  I just noticed Santa in the kitchen holding the Mango up on his tray.....LOL! Yep! It's Queensland!
Our City Hall in Brisbane.
Enjoy your Sunday,
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
