FNSI

After a very busy week I settled down last evening to stitch a long with my blogging friends. Hosted again this year by the lovely Wendy at Sugarlane Quilts.
I was extremely tired so I  chose to relax and quietly work on my current Blessings block...
And then there were almost 3!
If you joined in too, I hope you enjoyed your evening. I certainly did.
I have begun a new book.....one that has been on my wish list for ages....
The inspiration for the book was a rural district about 2 hours from where I live. So that drew me in immediately. I am only a couple of chapters in but really enjoying it.
I  was a wee bit sad this week to hear of the death of talented songwriter, singer and guitarist Glen Frey from the Eagles.
I offer no excuses  for being a complete tragic Eagles fan. Their music has accompanied Mr. R. and I from our youth through to current times. Our children were traumatised by years of being trapped on long road trips seranaded by their music and trying to shut it out with closed bedroom doors...without much success lol! We have never missed a Brisbane concert. I  know it is part of life but it is sad that we won't get to see them intact again and hear those beautiful harmonies live. Glen Frey gifted us with some fabulous music which will be forever in our hearts. These two little old Aussies are going to miss him.
Rest assured the music will continue in our household.
Have a wonderful weekend.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  3. Hello Michelle,

    Love the blocks you were able to finish after a busy week. I am glad we are not the only family who have adult children who are traumitised due to our music habits! It has been a sad start to the year re music makers passing on. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

    Happy days.

  8. It was such a shock about Glen...very sad! Love your block you worked on...so effective with those lovely fabrics. Did you buy the template for the Dresden in Australia or is it part of a kit? Must Google to find out all about your new book...set fairly locally sounds great!!
