Nearly Done

I have finished putting my baby Dresden Plates together...
And I am really pleased to say they fit where they are supposed to go....woohoo!
A spot of applique to secure them and their little gold centres and my secret commission will be ready for some lovely quilting!!
Which means??
I can start something new! And that something has been on my wish list for a long time. It is a project in Quiltmania magazine and until recently I only had one of the issues needed. Thanks to a lovely gift from a friend I now have the other back issue.....

I am very excited to be mulling over fabrics in my minds eye for this beauty!
I just love it! So I can see a few "long term" projects in my future.  I am really hoping that a lot of the fabrics will come out of my stash.
Well I best not to finish my Dresden work so I can begin.....
I will leave you with this quote which was a favourite of my Grandmother and which she recited to me often. I find them inspiring words.
Enjoy your evening.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
