Busy days!

Is it only Wednesday?  Seems to have been very busy so far this week....mainly good kind of busy!
Monday I had this little duo keep me company all day...
Yesterday was art and school pick up.....I was really happy to put my signature finally to my little Tasmanian furry friend "Tassie". I do hope he appreciates all the effort I put into giving him a nice devil like den to live in.
I only had the photo reference for the little devil so I had to invent his home...I was so pleased that it ended up resembling the vision I had in my head. The search for my next little critter model is on....first I must finish a cute Cockatoo who has been waiting patiently.
At night I have been working away on my Roma quilt and after getting back on track after the unsewing episode I have all 4 borders hexied....
After much thought I decided to applique a little single carnation flower in those blank corners.
I am loving the "go with the flow" aspect of designing this quilt. Even if there are a few little bumps that arise along the way....
Today I was treated to another Grandparents Day celebration with our youngest Grandson Cooper...
We were having fun with some drawing and I had a story read to me....
The service was lovely, nice choir singing and delicious morning tea. Very blessed to have these lovely children in my life.
A few little treasures in my poor neglected garden to finish off.
Lily decided to flower for the first time. In my favourite "RED"
 So did the variegated Hibiscus...
and the Star Jasmine is a picture...
I just love the way Nature says "go ahead neglect me...I don't care! I will be stunning anyway!"
Off to play with fabric flowers....carnations!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
