Binding Time

I have had 2 days sewing binding on and down on a commission quilt...
Nice to have it all hand stitched down and completed. Today was spent exercising my brain writing sheaths of instructions and redrawing pattern pieces.
I think some nice quiet hand stitching is in order for tonight!
Lovely mail.
When I arrived home from holidays I had a lovely little parcel waiting for me from Chookyblue for my birthday from Birthday Club. Lovely creamy fat quarter and a selection of her beautiful cards.....going to be very hard to give them away!
Thank you so much Chooky. I loved my parcel.
Today the postie bought me these pretties...
Mistletoe has always been a favourite but I  have to say Rosella and Peacock are very pretty. Can't wait to thread my needle and try them out.
Have a wonderful weekend folks. I am off tomorrow to frighten my hairdresser! Lol! I had to cancel due to our reorganised holiday, so it's pretty darn scary!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  12. Beautiful gifts and I can see why you want to start stitching with those pretty threads. You can always frame the cards instead of giving them away. Hope you had a good hair experience. Funny how we need more maintainance the older we get lol.
