Friend Robyn gifted some of her friends some cuttings from one of her orchids....I was thrilled to see one of my pieces had taken very well but also surprised me with a couple of pretty blooms into the bargain.
Also waiting for me was a birthday gift from my friend Cheryl.....yummy FG fabric and the sweetest notelet set. Beautiful!
When we travel to outback Queensland and beyond we nearly always go through dear friend Fiona's home town, so it was just so nice to have a catchup under a shady tree with her.
Just in case you don't know already my friend does the most beautiful quilting and had 2 to return to me. I am only going to show you a sneaky peek as they haven't got their binding on yet but I am thrilled to my toes!
I will have to get a wriggle on with the binding so I can show you my Splendid Sampler quilt finished. After my 12 months of moaning about it and never thinking I would actually end up with a quilt, I am thrilled with the end result. Fiona definitely bought it to life....
My family laugh at me because you see I have this tatty old brown recliner.....that I adore and stitch and draw quite happily there. Well we had a heartfelt reunion....ahhhhhh! So nice to curl up in it once again. Lol! I so missed her!
My sewing mojo has been left somewhere out there on the road I fear but I did finish a little bit of stitching, in my fav chair on one of my sadly neglected Gardener's Journal blocks.
The Potting Shed....
Well must away....still lots of chores to do to set the place to rights. Have a wonderful day folks.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
