More Lovely Mail


Good morning  on this gorgeous day...
My poor overworked postie delivered to me a birthday gift held back because of my time away from sweet, sweet Wendy from Sugarlane Quilts....

Beautiful  fabrics with sweet birdies and pretty blooms, gorgeous vintage buttons and ceramic ones, tape measure and a beautiful pendant watch.....oh my how spoilt I am. Thank you dear Wendy you made my day xxx
More Art...2 of the other projects I did on hols.
Our beloved Mum Poss and her baby...

Because she was photographed in our garage I had to look for a nice tree to position her in...this one was on the river bank and was perfect.
The other is 2 gossiping Willy Wagtails which a friend at art gifted me some reference photos of.  I put them together for a chat on a paddock post. The post belongs to another friend Cathie who allowed me a few snapshots.

  Back to art yesterday and I started 2 new drawings...an Aussie favourite of mine...Tassie Devil and a Petunia thieving Cockatoo (thanks Trish).
I just have to research the devils den to complete the prelim drawing. I have been asked lots of times if I  trace from the photos and the answer is no! All are drawn freehand using the end of my pencil as a measure for distances.

Such great fun! Stitching wise I am  quilting the last border on my Dresdens quilt.  I hope to finish it off tonight.
I wish you  a  beautiful day.
Namaste and Blessings
Michelle  xxx
