Rain on the Roof

I love the sound of rain on the roof when you are lying in your bed. Nice soft raindrops....the garden is loving them too.
Oh how I  wish I could send it to those who need it....
Some areas of Queensland have had some decent falls and others not....Rain! Such a precious thing. Hoping it keeps falling for those who really need it.
This city slicker has been rifling through her stash for pretty candidates for her new little project...

They go so nicely with the thread I am using I think. I have had the little print earmarked for a while now. Even though I tend to use mainly DMC tbreads, Country Garden Threads Mistletoe is one I love and use a lot too.
I also have a hankering for some of these.
These baby Dresdens are so sweet when done....the trick is going to be finding complimentary scrappies to make the blades from my stash...I do like a challenge.
Well. Best finish the last little stitchery and then get started on my little plates.
Whatever you are doing, do it with your whole heart. It changes the ordinary into the sacred.
Nana gorgeous girls!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  3. we have plenty of rain, but like you say there are plenty who have way too much and those that haven't had enough! Yippie granny time, I am looking forward to my granddaughter visiting next week!

  4. I need to get my hand on some of this Mistletoe thread that I'm seeing around blogland. I think it would be pretty to use on some of my Michelle Ridgeway designs. hmmm... off to do some shopping!
