FNSI

As I was joining my online friends for our monthly stitching evening I thought I  would  dress for the occasion. ....you know colour coordinated and all that!

Well my socks match m
Minnies bow! I was nice and snuggly in my pj's by the fire. 
I decided I would have a bit of a break from the hand quilting and just relax with some stitchery...

I managed to get a little done. I do like this one...an oldie but a goodie!
I turned in early as I had an early start today. I booked in for a workshop on drawing flowers in Coloured Pencils.  I  enjoyed it very much. I have been really wanting to  get up close and personal with some of our native flora....but I was a great old scaredy cat. Today I jumped in both feet...
Beautiful Grevillea.
A bit more tweaking but overall I feel much more confident now.
We received some wonderful news last night.  Lucas our son got clear pathology results from all his surgery....insert huge *sigh*. Lots of checks will always be his life but we are so relieved.
Thank you everyone for all your kind words, thoughts and prayers.
Thanks Wendy for hosting us again for FNSI. I will be off visiting later to see everyone's efforts.
Namaste and Blessings

  6. I'm so pleased for you and your family. It must be such a relief. I love the drawing. I'm always envious of people who can sketch. I can't draw a straight line with a ruler.
    I'm glad I wasn't the only one in PJ's friday night
