Back to Your Regular Broadcast.

Good morning all. Firstly I would like to say a huge thank you to you all and I  have truly felt like I  have been wrapped in a huge loving hug. Your kindness is overwhelming. To those who have not received a reply from's the old "no-reply blogger" setting preventing me from doing so but know that I deeply appreciated each and everyone of your comments. Please know that your support and caring and sharing my quilt has been much more than I anticipated and is all the gift I need.
So I feel much happier knowing that you are all being vigilant on my behalf xxx
Now back to the business of stitching and happy things.
My Robyn Falloon pattern arrived and I can't wait to start....take a note of the design name....very apt.
This arriving certainly gave me the "hurry up" to finish the last Roma blocks...
Not that I haven't enjoyed every stitch because I really have. I wanted to include a fan of some kind because my Grandmother was a church minister's wife and Sunday services did not include air conditioning and a fan was always in her handbag. 
I have begun to lay all the blocks out and I have decided that there will be no final border but a binding the same pink as the inner border will finish it off.
Hopefully it will be all together very soon. Then perhaps a bit of a wait until cool weather quilting is possible. I'm really happy with how it has turned out.
Yesterday was a lovely treat....I went to the movies with 2 friends to see this.
Not at all what I thought I was expecting. ...I just loved it. Laughing and crying with good friends throughout it was wonderful. Lunch and a post mortem of the movie was the perfect finish to the day.
As it is threatening more rain here today I feel a bit more stitching coming on.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
