FNSI - January

The year is now in full swing and I signed up  to join the other stitcher's in blogland for..
Lovely Wendy from Sugarlane Quilts was our hostess. I have been working on some secret stitching stuff so I can't show you that. So I decided to work on my "1700's type" quilt blocks. I want two straight pieces with simple applique for down each side of the main medallion piece. So I set out preparing those.
I decided on tulip flowers each end as I want them in the centre piece. I managed to get them appliqued on and the middle bloom cut out.
A bit more quiet stitching today will hopefully see them finished. I finished off the night with a little applique on a baby Dresden block.
Earlier in the day I finished off my name badge for the Let's Get Stitched meeting in Brisbane....hope I got it right and my partner likes it.
 I hope your long weekend in Oz is a great one.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
