Country at Heart

I spent the day today assembling my Country at Heart Alphabet quilt. I had hoped for borders as well but they will have to wait for another day. I was very pleased with my days work.
I just joined the blocks up in a simple snowball pattern, sprinkling the extra blocks throughout.
It felt great to almost empty out my container of orphan 2 1/2 inch squares!
I am continuing to work on my hexies for Brinton Hall but shan't bore you.
There are a couple of art pieces to share with you that I finished this week....both were almost done. Teacher managed to grab a sneaky of us all working hard when we weren't looking lol!
I have been working away again on another Scratchboard piece....a beautiful Silverback gorilla. The reference permission given by my DD good friend Kerryn xx
The other project was a coloured pencil piece of our crazy and cute Staffy pup, fur Granddog.....Diesel.
A very nice creative week so far......
Earlier in the week on a trip out to the bank I wandered past our local bookstore. Big end of year sales happening. I was very pleased as I had a voucher that was a mother's day gift.....so of course I went in. Last year I contemplated getting the new edition of What Bird is That?.....but as I often do, I talked myself out of it.  Well it just happened to be in the sale....cue happy stitcher dance here!
Well sustenance is required and I am looking forward to a relaxing evening, unlike last night where a great deal of breath holding took place as our fantastic Queensland Origin team fought to stay in the series....what a game! We made it by 2 points..phew!
Have an enjoyable evening.
Namaste And Blessings Michelle xxx
