Nature of Art

Dear fellow bloggers, followers and friendly lurkers, after much thought I have decided to create a separate blog for my art and interest in wildlife and nature. You will see my pretty red honeyeater on my side bar. If you click on it you can pop on over and follow it if you choose. Either by email or as a Follower. I shall still be posting here in my regular blog just the same.
Ok back to stitching!
Two months required catching up on in Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
August was quite a challenge as it was LOW VOLUME BEIGE. As these blocks will join cream Dresden Plate blocks I couldn't really do beige. So I chose these fabrics.
This month.....ORANGE.
Nice to be caught colour next week lol!
Another little Gardener's Journal block is complete. The Dovecote.
I have started the cottage which is the largest block and involves lots of stitching. I am really loving working on these.
Just a quick post today to let you know about my new blog.
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
