Just Scraping in Again!

Good morning. Its It's a bit cool around here this morning for this thin blooded Queenslander. Well it did drop to single digits....that's cool to me!
Anyway I digress. I have gotten May's Rainbow Scrap Challenge block done just in time before the next one is due. GREEN was the colour for May.
It was a butterfly turn as well.
This years blocks are starting to look very "Rainbowy"....
Ok bring on June!
Something struck me recently when I was preparing some patterns to go out. My process is usually getting the image in my head down on paper.....sometimes they get stitched and sometimes they have gone into my stitchery alphabets and patterns and I don't get to stitch them. Whilst packaging this one....Frosty Friends...
A few of the cute Frosties just stole my heart all over again and I really felt the need to stitch a couple.
I have chosen Country Garden Thread Blue Wren (washed and tested) and it is stitching up so nicely.
I am not sure what they will become yet but they are so darn cute.....even if I do say so myself lol! I must remember to have a look see in my own pattern drawers from time to time for some more stitching projects.
I am off for a cuppa in a nice sunshiny warm spot.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx

  17. Hi Michelle,
    Your rainbow blocks look lovely!
    Did you mean you have washed your threads, or they come ready washed? If you washed them, I too, would love to know how you did it. I imagine you just loosen the threads, but keep them in the hank as you wash them?
    Love your Frosties too!
