Simple Joys

It's that time of year when lots of secret stitching is taking place in sewing caves all over the place.
Here is no different....only a smidge more to do and it will be ready for Santa's sleigh.
I am so happy to finally be getting the last bit of "Remembering Roma" done....sewing blocks together.
There is no denying that I am truly a when my lovely friend Fiona from Bubz Rugz sent me some extra prebasted hexies, all gorgeous French General ones in our Friends Hexie swap, I just had to include them in this quilt....I added some extras and they were perfect for my corners..
 I like that scrappy look too..
So finally one completed flimsy!!!!! Yay!
First on the quilting agenda when the weather is cooler next year!
Now Joy was the title of my post and I just had to record the unbridled joy my Granddaughter Miss E. revelled in when she discovered her Mum's Doc Marten boots in the wardrobe.....
I know I am not supposed to go in there....But look what I found Lol!
Meanwhile her cousin..
wanted a peek yesterday of what was in my art folder when I dropped him off at school yesterday. Master C. is like his Nana in his love of wildlife and animals.He regales me with all kinds of 'amazing' facts. So I showed him my latest piece (which I can't show you as it is a gift and their are eyes everywhere) My little art critic said "Fantastic Nana, just Fantastic!" you can't get higher praise than that! Lol! Love my little people.
I hope you are enjoying your day whatever you are doing.
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
