Crazy!

Is it a full moon? Because sometimes I really feel like I need seeing to! You see I have friends who lovingly encourage me into lunacy....you know the type? Show you something gorgeous that you know you can't resist....
Firstly, I am joing my friend Fiona from BubzRugz in this long-term project.
My book has arrived. 196 blocks folks...4 1/2 inch blocks of recessed applique!  Like I said self imposed lunacy!  Already putting aside lovely fabrics....so there is no hope for me. I am going to do mine in red and a cream top.
Secondly some "friends" at art encouraged me to try Scratchboard. ...another lunatic step....this little giraffe is taking me forever and don't even mention the shrubbery aarrghh!
You will love it! They said!  Now I  am hooked!  Do you have friends who lead you astray too? Well the upside is I am never bored lol!
Lastly we have a new holiday mode of transportation coming to live with us in a few weeks time and we are really excited about it. So much to do before it gets here. It will be wonderful to have a teeny bit of luxury after our years of traveling with our camper which we loved. Thankfully it's not going far....can't wait!


Have a great day all....I am  really  going to try and stay out of trouble!

Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  1. Well it seems to me that you are just a bit crazy! BUT.... you can work on those tiny blocks while you're travelling the world in your new camper! It al makes perfect sense.

  2. Yes, it is a full moon - it was shining in our room the last two nights! Blame it for everything :) The caravan is very stylish indeed - and probably should have a few new quilts in there, just to finish it off, he he

  6. Nope! It was a full moon a couple of days ago so you can't blame that LOL. I don't believe that you will stay out of mischief even if you do try. At least it is creative and productive. Just go with it girl! Love your etching.
