Soooo Close!

Hello everyone from rainy old Brisbane town today. I thought while I had a bit of a break from my mind exploding instructions and such I would pop in and say G'day! You may remember the "Michelle's Long Term  Secret Sewing" project...
Well I just thought seeing as I am getting very excited about it's reveal, I would tease you as well. This is soooo close to being able to be revealed to you that I am finding it very hard to keep quiet. So this was the next best thing lol! Watch this space lovely stitchers!
As you all know there has been a bit going on around here lately but children having fun always make you smile. Our youngest Grandson had his first ever sports day...they were so cute!
Ready for a fast getaway!
Jumping very high in the high know just to make sure that you clear that bar!
What could be more fun than a chicken relay?
Thank to all my FB friends who shared our pleasure about this little minx...
getting really good developmental results...may they continue!!! Feeling blessed!
Apart from lots of hard work which will become apparent in the next little while, I have found great comfort and peace with my needle and quilting thread...
 I just love the quiet rhythm of hand quilting.
 Thank you lovely friends for all your words of encouragement and support recently. It meant so much. I for one am going to carry on with hope and positivity in my heart that all will be well and get back to more cheery posts.
Have a lovely rest of your day everyone.
Namaste and blessings,
Michelle xxx
