FNSI

Last night was...
over at the lovely Wendy's at Sugarlane Quilts with all the other lovely bloggers around Australia and overseas.
I don't have an awful lot to show as I wanted to get some work done that is needed for an upcoming project.
So I drew out the design I had in my mind for it...
Traced it out...
and FINALLY got to some stitching.
I am stitching the Violets in a variegated DMC thread. Still deciding if I like it or not! I hope you all enjoyed your night of stitching. If you didn't join us you can pop over to Wendy's to see what everyone got up to. I will be doing the rounds over the weekend.
Thanks Wendy for virtually having us at your place x

Yesterday I joined my old work colleagues for our regular catch up but we got to meet someone very special.
Master "J" is my lovely friend Lauren's dear little boy. Sooo..............I was finally able to give him his little "I'm here" gift.

I am wishing him many good story reads lazing back on his cushion.
Happy weekend everyone. I am off to celebrate my Uncle's 90th birthday this afternoon. Boy is he a spritely 90 year old.....guess there will be cake (I'm counting on it lol)
Thought I would leave you with this beautiful image from the magpie whisperer as you know "maggies" are some of my favourite people....
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx

  1. I do love the violets-- they are very pretty. I do like magpies too-- we have a pair who live in our yard-- that is the front yard nowadays, as Penny chases them out of the backyard! Naughty Penny.

  3. Ofcourse I looooove your stitchery in purple. Looks pretty already. The little one's cushion is lovely. 3 maggies on the fence looks like my backyard. Heaps of maggies, kookas, cockatoos and colourful parrots.
