FNSI & FRIDAY FROLICS

Last night was my first Friday Frolics with Kaye from Kitten Stitching and I joined all my bloggy friends as well over at Wendy's at Sugarlane Quilts for our monthly catchup.
I began early in the day as I was on a mission...started by sewing the binding down on my Dresdens quilt which I  have now named "French Feathered Friends ".
I was then all set to handstitch the binding down.

I then curled up and watched a mystery thriller starring Demi Moore called "Half Light"...loved it. As I'm a whimp I  was suitably scared lol!
So folks...TaDa!

It's finished! What a joy it has been....loved the fabrics, epp, applique and the hand quilting....oh of course and the little birdies.


It will be lovely to snuggle under for a bit of a read....I am revisiting a book that I  love by someone who's writing has seen me through some very dark days over the years.
Sadly he recently left our world..

I do hope that you all made a little progress too last evening. Looking forward to seeing what everyone got up to.
Now!
***** Please note*****
Even though I am so blessed to be able to do what I do, there is one teeny downside to creating lots of samples to go into the magazine's. Where do you keep them all?? I have so many cushion covers and wall hangings that one person could never possibly use them all. I have been going through them all and deciding which ones I could bare to part with....all have a tiny piece of my heart.
So I have decided that for the next couple of Mondays I am going to  pop up some on my blog for sale...they will be extremely low cost and whoever emails first will be able to buy the sample...unfortunately due to postage cost restraints it is only for my Aussie followers. None have been used and are in perfect order. After their 5 minutes of fame they have remained packed away. Keeping in mind that they are samples, you may have to add your own littler hanger and no cushion inserts will be included.
I really need to get some space....it's getting desperate lol!
So I  shall post a photo and the price...beginning Monday.
Happy weekend,
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  20. It's a beautiful new design Michelle, and I could see how much you enjoyed making it with every post. Funny that you are selling some samples, I was wondering the other day what designers do with all their creations. The buyers will be very lucky.
