A Busy Week.

This week has just flown by with somewhere to be and something to do every day. But Thursday I took myself off to the Sunshine Coast...
To visit this gorgeous lady...
My best friend Ann. We had such a lovely day talking about all manner of things and I think Ann is actually visiting from the "Dark Side" (card making) and doing some stitching which is lovely. Although I have to say that she did make me the most gorgeous card for a swap I am in. I shall show when it gets to it's recipient.
Ann also gifted me the most beautiful Art Journal.
Which I intend to fill up with lots and lots of sketches....first page has a new friend.
The postie bought me some lovely new coloured pencils that I treated myself to that I need for a workshop later in the year. Hopefully I can add some colour to my lovely journal....the pages are soooo lovely!
Where is the stitching I hear you shouting???? Well! I have RR's centre together.
I'll whisper in your ear....I am quite chuffed it actually resembles the picture in my head!
The next step working out where these blocks will go.
......oh and make 25 more! Thinking cap on!
I am off now as I am on morning cuppa duty.
Enjoy your weekend everyone.

Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
