Hello Winter

Apparently today is the first day of Winter here in the Southern Hemisphere. But as you can see we are having a lovely Queensland Winter morning, with sunshine streaming through my window...
I guess working on my little Frosties is a perfect match for the start of the Winter season......I have finished one...
And working on the second.
As I knew I would need more of CGT Blue Wren I popped online and ordered some from Fabric Not only were they an Aussie company but a Queensland one as well. Yesterday my little purchase arrived and they had popped 2 pretty charm squares in as a thank nice is that.
They went straight in my clamshell tin as I am aiming for that vintage type look for my clamshells and need lots of variation.
On the drawing front I have been working on some heart projects...this one for a family member who resides overseas and doesn't read my blog so I can share.
This is wee Tinker who has gone over the rainbow bridge...he was a Yorkshire Terrier. Most beloved by his owner.
Wasn't he cute!
Well I must dash. I am off to have an afternoon coffee with a bunch of blood suckers lol! My old work collegues. We have kept this ritual for about 9 years...great women!
We do it about every 2 months.

Stay cosy.....or cool!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
