Quick Post

Good morning lovely people. Just a quick post this morning because its "Stitching Day" with my sewing bag is packed and ready.
Pincushion block in Splendid Sampler is done.
I will be working on the lovely Gail Pan block today.
The postman bought me these cute little hexies because I enjoyed them in SS.
I fancied making a little mini perhaps.
Since going to an art teacher who is a renowned Wildlife artist and being surrounded by like minded people, my love of little birds as increased tenfold.
This is my latest effort....Scarlet Honeyeater. I just loved the red. Black and bright coloured birds are a little challenging in coloured pencil as you have to lay down the undercolours correctly so they don't look flat! Anyway I thought this teeny pretty chap was so very pretty in amongst those blossoms.
Ok must fly or else I shall be going in my pj's.
Little thought......"learn to love yourself because you spend a lot of time together"
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
